Saturday Night Live "Exposes" The Fifty Shades Of Grey Auditions
We here at LitReactor pride ourselves on many things, including things we actively avoid. We're fairly good at not being terrible, for instance. We're also pretty good at not accidently fulfilling apocalyptic prophecies by typing out that forgotten incantation they told me not to publish when I started here. And, perhaps our crowning achievement, we've been really good at not writing about Miley Cyrus. Seriously, our managing editor has been more stubborn on this issue than congressional... well, let's not get into that right now.
It seems she's finally broken through via a Saturday Night Live sketch covering the lost audition reels for the Fifty Shades of Grey film due out next year. Considering the casting process for this film has been hilarious all on its own, it's not surprising that the topical comedy sketch show would put the film it its spotlight.
I'll be the first to admit that I don't know much about this series at all, except that it involves BDSM stuff and some people claim it's terrible. I haven't read the books, don't plan to, and don't really want to see the movie. But given how passionately some of you seem to feel about it, I want to ask: If you were in charge of rebooting the series (or making the first film adaptation of the book, whatever), what would you do differently to make it "better"?
