E.L. James definitely hit a nerve when she wrote her Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Women snatched up copies at a frenzied pace and jokes about it became pretty common in popular culture.
The first movie hit theaters two years ago and it sparked a huge controversy but it didn’t stop worked up moms from buying tickets. This year, the sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, was released and, despite lackluster reviews, people still went to see it.
I have read all three books and, really, the movie adaptations are not very good. The main actors, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, have almost no chemistry and the sex scenes are not steamy or convincing. During both films, the audiences laughed nervously and chatted while the couple pretended to get it on – no one seemed to get hot or bothered.
That doesn’t seem to be the case at one screening, though. An employee at the Hayden Orpheum in Sydney, Australia claims to have made a rather gross and startling discovery. Along with a photo he shared on Facebook, he wrote: “That awkward moment when you find a cucumber in the cinema after a session.”
This was not all part of some publicity stunt, either. The Deputy General Manager of the cinema says that it was completely real. Alex Temesvari said: “Hand on my heart, it was actually found after our Student Night session of Fifty Shades on Monday night (actually by me!). Otherwise I would totally take credit for it being a clever marketing ploy, but honestly we’re not THAT clever.”
I cannot believe that he picked up that vegetable with his bare hands. I would have used gloves AND tongs to get rid of it!
