  33. I didn’t read the books (not really my thing) but I might see the movie out of sheer curiosity. I feel like I can’t talk about it one way or another if I haven’t seen it, right?

  38. I’m amazed at how fast movies are now dvd having just been in theaters like 2 days before!!! 🙂 I know that fans of this movie will be happy!

  39. Great giveaway for those who loved the book and the movie. I’m going to be honest and say I wasn’t a fan of either. 🙂

  40. thanks for the chance!!! i loved the books and the movie!!! 🙂

  41. I read all the books and saw the movie. Great series for anyone that wants to “escape” for a bit!

  44. Sandra V says:

    I read the book, saw it in theater, and downloaded the soundtrack. Can’t wait to see the deleted scenes and alternate ending!

  45. megan Tilley says:

    I would love to see this as I have read all books but we couldn’t get to the movies! Thanks for the chance!

  46. This was such a fun movie to watch – in the theaters – with both enthusiastic and hesitant fans! I would love to bring this home and convince a few other friends to give it a try

  47. Juana Esparza says:

    I read the trilogy and saw the movie. I loved them equally, and can’t wait for part 2.



  48. Angie H says:

    I am really thankful that you are offering this up for grabs! Such an exciting movie to watch!

  49. I read part of book 1. I never finished it because it was so poorly written (IMHO) I interviewed some name brand bloggers who loved it and others who didn’t . I watched all the trailers so I could get a handle on the movie– as I cover this content in my blog. I was very interested in how they created a screenplay that would stay in tune with the book. I also wrote about the home furnishings companies whose products were prominently featured in Christian’s apartment. It was interesting because they weren’t well known brands except to designers.
    Loved that part of it.

  50. Mary B says:

    I managed to struggle through all 3 books, so I figured if I invested that much of my life that I will never get back, I might as well go the distance and watch the movies too!

  51. Tom Kelly says:

    I want to see what all of the talk is about.

  52. Simone Natash says:

    I loved all 3 books because it showed the heroine refused to be a victim because of her naivete and inexperience, and in the end she won his heart and turned him into the loving partner and father that he really was. She was the strong one and he became somewhat normal.

  53. Rebecca O says:

    I have been waiting for this to come out on video! I didn’t read the books but after so much hype I really want to see it.

  54. Crystal says:

    I have not had the chance to read the book or see the movie…I would like to see it since i have heard so much about it…thanks..

  55. Laurie Emerson says:

    I did not read the book or see the movie but I have to admit that after hearing so much about it I would love to see the movie!

  56. Laurie Emerson says:
  57. Saw the movie, then read books! Would love to see the teaser for the next movie!

  58. Thanks for the DVD giveaway. I wasn’t as shocked by the book or movie as the hype led me to expect. But I would like to see the additional features on the DVD. So I retweeted your tweet. Thanks.

  59. Thanks for the giveaway!

  60. Not a fan of the book or the movie. However love a good classic.

  61. Priscila says:

    fingers crossed to win! Didn’t see it yet!

  62. Brittany Whitley says:

    I’ve read the trilogy a couple times over, and was super excited to go see the movie! I’m glad they chose Jamie Dornan over the guy from Sons of Anarchy to play Christian. I think he fit the bill better, realistically. I was planning to buy the Bluray when it comes out but how awesome would it be to win it instead?! PRETTY DARN AWESOME!!! Thank you for the opportunity!!

  63. Brittany Whitley says:

    I also tweeted! Here’s the link to it!

  64. I would LOVE to win this. Ive seen it multiple times but ready to see it again. I must own it! lol

  65. Arlene Chiu says:

    I read the books and saw the movie when it came out in theaters. I am a big fan of Jamie and Dakota. I would love to win the DVD to especially see how different the unrated version is compared to the rated and along with the special features including a teaser for the second movie.

  66. LaPriece Anaya says:

    I love this movie. Goodluck everyone

  67. I’ll confess – I actually want to see it.
