Old Fashioned: The Christian Answer to Fifty Shades of Grey

Sunday, February 15th, 2015

The big gossip in town this weekend is the premiere of the film Fifty Shades of Grey. We at the Stepford Wives Organization have maintained our position that we are in no way associated with any BdSM culture or its community. We do attract many people from that group, but we have no affiliation or interest in its practices.

So you can imagine our excitement when we heard there was an alternate to Fifty Shades of Grey by way of a film called Old Fashioned, which is more to our pace.

The movie does market itself has “not Fifty Shades of Grey.” At this point, we would watch a Pauly Shore movie by virtue of the fact that it is “not Fifty Shades of Grey.” Instead of girl meets man with weird unconventional sexual fetishes, girl in Old Fashioned meets boy with old fashioned ideas of love and courtship.

The music in the trailer, by the way, is by Ivan Colon. We thought it sounded like another band who sometimes sings about God, Belle & Sebastian.
