We are completely kidding ourselves if we feel like this and other "entertainment" venues are not effecting our children as well. As stated in a 2011 article in Psychology Today, "When an adolescent boy compulsively views pornography, his brain chemistry can become shaped around the attitudes and situations that he is watching. Sadly, pornography paints an unrealistic picture of sexuality and relationships that can create an expectation for real-life experiences that will never be fulfilled." And this movie is a prime example of shoving this behavior in the faces of impressionable young men and women, as well as promoting this dangerous behavior for adults as well. These effects are real, scary, and destructive.
Teenagers are bringing this book to read during class, growing up believing that this is acceptable, and even normal! I don’t think we have even seen a fraction of the psychologically stinted men and women that will come about as a result of “entertainment” just like this! As another reviewer (who actually did read the book) put it "Christian (the main male character) never views Anastatsia (main female) as a person, let alone an independent woman. He wants her to obey him, and even though she refuses to include that in her wedding vows, it is exactly what she does." I personally am so afraid of young women in our day growing up believing that in order to make a man "happy" that she must subject herself to emotional, physical, and verbal abuse. This is not anywhere close to love or romance; this is in fact, quite the opposite of true love. And no where near reality.
And of course even though I will NOT watch it, it still gets even worse then a 4 diaper day, pretty much my worst twin blow-out diaper day ever.

"How Do You Know"
Yikes....another one that is difficult to even review because I felt it was so mind=numbing. What is going on with acting these days? It was absolutely terrible! Predictable, cliche, uninspiring. 4 diapers....miserable.
A great inspirational true story, and one that is definitely worth watching. I usually love the moving types of stories, and this one is no different. I did feel that it was slightly boring and slow moving in parts, but it seems like it kept with the original story well. I give it a 2 diaper day....agreeable.
