Now that everybody has read their way through the entire Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy (What? Not you? Congrats on being one of about five adults in America in that state), all anyone seems to want to talk about is the Fifty Shades movie. But let's set aside the debate over who is going to star for a moment (cough, Taylor Kitsch for Christian Grey, pretty please, pretty please!). Can we talk script?
Whoever gets the unenviable task for trying to turn E.L. James' naughty novels into a screenplay has a lot of fans to satisfy. And they won't succeed unless they actually figure out what it is people like about these bestsellers. Getting your head around all the various reasons is hard to quantify, so how about a start? How about the must have lines from Fifty Shades?
We've already heard all the cheesy lines they need to leave out. So now I'm talking the defining phrases that people have picked up and started using in the vernacular, pinning on Pinterest (check out The Stir's own 50 Shades pinboard and feel free to grab some of your own or pin the following!), and more or less feel that this movie cannot be without.
Which is your favorite? What did we miss?
