@FutureMrs86:  This is that movie with Maggie Gyllenhaal?  She cuts herself and things and gets invovled with her boss?

 

Seen the movie, never read those books, I don’t really like books filled with sex.

I don’t think they’re even comparable. The Secretary is a good movie. 50 Shades is garbage.

@MrsBot:  Hear hear!

I love Secretary. 50 Shades of Grey is very badly written and barely kinky.

They are hardly comparable. Secretary is really weird and fascinating. 50 shades is poorly written fan fiction.

I haven’t read fifty shades, but I have seen the secretary a number of times and actually own it. I think it is a very interesting movie and although there are a lot of the s&m scenes, it truely is about two people finding the right person for them and choosing to be brave and doing everything in their power to overcome their pasts and presents to be together. Very good film!

50 shades of grey is poorly written TWILIGHT fan fiction. which makes it like, infinately worse imnsho.

The Secretary is one of my favorites, though also pretty corny to me in frankly all the right ways. 

though anyone with a masochistic and/or self harming compulsion, should never participate in BDSM without talking to a kink friendly psyciatrist/medical professional.

@FutureMrs86:  that movie is my top favorite of all time. Unfortunately, I am a stickler for bad writing, so not only have I not read the book but I am not giving you a clear answer ;p

@FutureMrs86:  What events were you confused by?

I’ve seen the movie (I think I own it?) and read the books unfortunately… my neighbor carried on a conversation with me about 50 Shades as my DH and I were walking our puppies today. It was slightly awkward…mostly because DH knows I hate the books and less because we were screaming about 50 in the middle of a residential neighborhood..
