Okay, first of all, I'm not jumping on any bandwagon regarding this movie. Second of all, what happened in this story was inevitable based on the content of this movie. I just assumed it would be a man, not a woman. Then again, are guys really going out to see Fifty Shades of Grey in the movie theaters? Not a chance! Basically, this was bound to happen and it was going to be a woman all along....and I'm glad my buddy, Scotty O brought this story to my attention.
So what happened? Well, one rather excited Fifty Shades of Grey movie-goer was so into Sam Taylor-Johnson's adaptation of E.L. James' novel that she was caught masturbating in her seat at the movie theater. That's right! I can't believe it took almost a week to find the female Pee-Wee Herman! Rather than being celebrated for truly demonstrating the spirit of Fifty Shades of Grey, the woman was actually thrown out of the theater and arrested for her actions, which was probably what she deserved anyhow.
One source reported that the incident unfolded in Sinaloa, Mexico, and the 33-year-old woman who was found guilty of inappropriately pleasuring herself in such a crowded location was immediately ousted from the theater for her actions. It was also reported the women sat in the 12th row of the theater, which suggested that she didn't plan to get so carried away on herself when she took her seat to watch the film. Wait! I just thought of something. She saw this in Mexico. Does that mean she saw Cincuenta Tonos De Cinza? Anyway, other moviegoers in the theater soon alerted staff of the woman's actions, and after she was taken away by police, she was charged with public indecency.
A lot has been made of the Fifty Shades of Grey erotic sex scenes. Before the film hit theaters, protests were organized by several religious groups who were prepared to be offended by the sexy melodrama, while the studio also made sure to release information that teased how much nudity the film actually possessed. However, once the movie was finally seen by critics and moviegoers, it soon became clear that Fifty Shades of Grey was actually rather tame. Its erotic scenes, which found Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and Ana Steele, were lambasted for being timid and far from sexy.
The masturbation incident isn't the first time there's been chaos at a recent screening at Fifty Shades of Grey. During a showing in Glasgow, a witness admitted that an almighty scuffle broke out which resulted in a group of women attacking a man with a glass. Other drunk women were caught vomiting in the aisles too. What the hell does this movie do to women? My wife is going to see this movie with my sister and her cousin this weekend. What can I expect? Hopefully a horned up wife!
Anyway, these mishaps have not stopped Fifty Shades from being a huge success at the box office. Over its opening weekend, the movie took in a ridiculously impressive $248.7 million across the world, which beat Avatar's opening in 2009. They won't be getting my money, though! I'll be masturbating watching Hot Tub Time Machine 2 this weekend!
