Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Will Shoot for an NC-17 Rating, Leaves Us Wondering

Frankly it leaves us wondering why they’re not just making a fully fledged porn.
Oh right, they’re suing the guys who are making the porn. The musical, though. The musical is apparently fine.
Yes, 50 Shades! The Musical is swinging into New York City this weekend. It’s a show put on by Baby Wants Candy, a Chicago-based improv group. According to the NY Post,
The sassy singing comedy features a live band performing raunchy original numbers, such as “They Get Nasty,” “I Don’t Make Love, I “F#*!” and “There’s a Hole Inside of Me…” the show features a lively score and 11 original songs.
The musical was a hit last month in Chicago, where it drew long lines at that city’s Apollo Theater, despite its next-to-nothing advertising budget, and earned the praise of the Chicago Tribune’s theater critic.
However, nobody takes their clothes off this time, there’s just a hefty load of innuendo. Speaking of things that are only implied, we’re not actually certain the film will go for NC-17, a rating that would exclude a large portion of the typical moviegoing audience. It’s just what the movie’s screenwriter says she’s going to shoot for. If the movie does wind up accepting an NC-17, well, all I’ll say is that it would be a testament to their confidence in the adult female audience’s ability to make a box office smash, so i can’t really argue with it.
