February 24, 2015

First off all the bashing and negative publicity that this movie and book have been getting is ridiculous and unnecessary. I have not read the book and I’m sure many things that were probably important to the story were left out of the movie. “50 Shades of Grey” the movie where I was the only male... Read more »
