In the words of Homer Simpson, we’ve got a hankerin’ for some spankerin’, as we discuss 50 Shades of Grey. Meanwhile Stuart delivers a eulogy for the rappin’ granny, Elliott explains the laziness of British elocution, Dan reveals a porn tale from his past, and we include perhaps our best outtakes ever.

Wikipedia synopsis for 50 Shades of Grey
Movies recommended in this episode:
The Crophouse is the 50 Shades parody name.
“I know the castle sank into the swamp, but it was otherwise well built&would still be standing if built on solid ground.”
“That doesn’t help keep my stuff dry.”
Nice “Enemy” reference!
I was fine with all the butt stuff but butter and marmalade on a scone, Dan? You really are a pervazoid.
Someone has picked up the R Kelly’s Goosebumps joke:
Please always have your riffs center around 90’s lady rock.
I was honestly worried that Elliot wouldn’t have a Letters From Listeners song in this one, but thankfully he decided against being so cruel.
Can’t believe Dan liked “Lucy.” He’s right that this is an aggressively dumb movie, but he’s wrong in his suggestion that the movie somehow doesn’t take itself seriously. Between the preachy pseudo-academic soliloquies by Morgan Freeman delivered without so much as a hint of irony and the 2001-ripoff time travel / mind trip scenes, this is a movie that takes itself and its ridiculous premise *dead serious*.
