And it's free on sky. How bad is it?

It's not too bad! Found some of it rather titillating, tbh! Storyline not in-depth, but I don't think that's really what it's about, is it??

If it's free, go for it. You may get some ideas you like wink. My DH and I quite enjoyed it at the pics. Felt keenly my post-3 baby body though compared to the nubile young thing on the screen...

Are you sure there's nothing else at all?

Its woeful. I spent so much time laughing in the cinema my friend thought i'd taken something. You wont get that time back you know.

No Alan Carr gets on my nerves and I've caught up with Homeland

It's ok. It's not THAT bad. Watch it.

It's not awful awful, just borderline awful/passable.

X-post.

Well, you tried. I thought he came across even more stalkerish in the film than the book (which I finished to make sure she dumped him).

It didn't help he'd just been on the telly playing a serial killer.

I watched it and ended up sobbing at how crappily he treated her (especially at the end) and knowing that in the sequels they go on to have a 'normal' relationship and he's forgiven.

Awful messages to women in that film about what romance really is. No wonder so many end up in shitty controlling relationships with manipulative selfish arseholes.

MarkRuffaloCrumble Fri 20-Nov-15 23:52:35

Not that I felt for her, terrible acting, but more for the real women who are in her shoes.

Never read the book as it sounded dreadful. The film wasn't as bad as I expected.

But kept thinking about the fact that Patrick Marber ('Closer', 'Alan Partridge', 'The Day Today') polished the script, but then the Author of the book threw out all his edits and insisted on them using the dialogue she'd written.

How much better it could have been! The director is good, and there's a better script out there which was never made!

Personally I'd put the TV off rather than watch that

There are lots of great documentaries on YouTube.

I thought her fringe made her look like Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden circa 1984.

Its ok but not really a good message for a healthy relationship. Lots of red flags if you like risque movies secretary was very good and explains BDSM a bit better.
