A portrait in Alpha

To say nothing of some exquisitely dreadful dialogue.  Frankly, I don't know how the producers of the 50 Shades of Gray movie have any choice but fire whomever they hired to play the male lead and go with Charles Dance instead.


It's that "Well, I did," that gets me every time.

There is actually repetition of the phrase 'kinky fuckery' in the book?

Nope! It's the "Yeah, that's what I thought," with eyeglass replacement that is the solid gold awesomemest moment of the video.

I actually think, 'Yeah, that's what I thought' at the end that put it over the top.

The Gilbert Gottfried is reading is hilarious too.

This is like MST3K of the literary world, only the material mocks itself.

Duke of Earl said...

The delivery is everything.

I actually have tears in my eyes.

Perhaps E L James is that rarest of things, a female comedian and her work just doesn't come across in print.

His delivery of "Yeah. That's what I thought." was simply perfect.

Must...remain...calm.

I don't know what funnier. The reading, or the book that enabled the reading.

Maybe we men have 50 shades all wrong, as Duke of Earl said. It's high comedy.

Nothing shows up stupidity like having someone read it with gravitas.

Just perfect!

Is there more? Come on, 50 secs is just not enough!

I need to bookmark this video for whenever I'm in a funk. It will cheer me right up on so many different levels.

I could just see the fans of the book fuming. He's mocking it! He did it wrong! He made that passage up! It's pronounced "fookery" you idiot! It's out of context!

A little slice of heaven. No wonder women are swooning while reading the book.
