DD is 16, we recently purchased 50 Shades Of Grey from the Sky box set. I watched it with her, wasn't an issue. Then DH comes in shouting and telling me that it is inappropriate and definitely doesn't approve... Who is BU?

It's definitely inappropriate as it gives a very skewed, dangerous and downright wrong view of bdsm lifestyle, for that reason alone I wouldn't let a teenager watch it.

You are unreasonable.

confused

At least it wasn't shameless, my then 18 yr old made me sit through that. My arse sweated until season 4.

50 shades is a bit rubbish anyway and maybe throw up a decent conversations about life and relationships?

What is the issue though? confused

Did you discuss with her the fact that the woman is in an abusive relationship?

MrsTerryPratchett Tue 19-Jul-16 19:20:09

I don't know. Was it part of a conversation about consent and boundaries? Because if not YABVVVVVVVVU.

You obviously know there is an issue otherwise why start a thread asking?

Because I didn't think there was an issue, my DH did

Oooh look at you all so cool and liberal biscuit

It's just a shitty film. I've seen it just coz everyone was on about it. It's shit

She's old enough to know it's a film and not real or something to follow unless she's the type that watched Tom and Jerry and believed she was a mouse or cat after it 😂

MrsTerryPratchett Tue 19-Jul-16 19:23:03

Sooo disingenuous... Was the issue the sex (don't care) or the abuse, lack of consent and worrying portrayal of BDSM?

What certificate is it?

BluePresent Tue 19-Jul-16 19:24:31

It's an 18

No, at 16, I don't think this is a big deal tbh. And for all the posturing about 50sog, I don't think it promotes a worse model than most Hollywood movies. It's just that people don't like it when male dominance is portrayed in a way that turns women on rather than in a way that is designed to appeal to men.

Or was it because the film is abit shit? It is time that she'll never get back.

Films are certificated for a reason. However, I think parents can decide to ignore this to a certain extent but you should have perhaps discussed it with your DH first.

I doubt I'd feel comfortable watching this film with my mother and I'm 37! 😳

yuk no! Anastasia mentions fisting!! I could not watch this with my mother! plus it's crap

BillThePony Tue 19-Jul-16 19:30:54

My dd wanted to see it at the cinema, she went with a friend because I refused to watch it with her.

We had a chat about it but she mainly found it ridiculous.
