You're confusing movies with musicals.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is massive, maybe into the Top 10 or 20 all time box office.
Yeah, I don't think so. Here's Wikipedia's list of the highest-grossing films. I don't see it breaking the top 20 at all - no broad, family appeal, like Frozen or the Harry Potter movies; unlikely to have huge rewatch numbers; and I bet a lot of people will wait until Netflix or DVD, to avoid embarrassment (like people buying it on Kindle to avoid being seen with the physical book).

One of the reviews says that it is a bit odd for a spanker's movie, there isn't a single penis in it - erect, flaccid or otherwise.

It's very hard (no pun intended... Oh, fuck it, it's intended.) to show an erect penis in a movie and for it to not become NC-17, in fact I think it's impossible. You can show a flaccid one but only in certain contexts and I'm sure only for so much/so long. Plus, your actor has be willing to show it.

Everything I'm hearing has this movie being very tame compared to the source material. In fact:

Brad Jones in his Midnight Review (with Sarah) seemed to take the movie as very being very tame and actually not as bad as he had feared.

Which is disappointing to me. I wanted to see this movie to experience how bad it is, but from what I've heard and seen it's not terrible. Or "the right kind of terrible" it's just boring compared to the source material. Brad and Sarah did seem to think the actress does a good job and the actor sucked.

So, I guess I won't go see it out of a morbid curiosity. I mean, I loved going to see the Twilight movies because they were ridiculously bad. Entertainingly bad.

This movie sounds like it's just a dud.
