Can You Tell The Difference Between Christian Grey And A Serial Killer?

"Fifty Shades of Grey," a terrible movie based on a terrible book, gives the world one of the least sexy characters of all time: Christian Grey.

Just how unsexy is Mr. Grey? Jamie Dornan, who plays the controversial billionaire-cum-dom, manages to make his serial killer character on "The Fall" seem more appealing.

While Dornan gives a nuanced performance in the critically acclaimed BBC series (which fans can watch on Netflix), it feels like even Dornan can't believe he signed on for "Fifty Shades." He's barely able to spit out the lines. Considering one is "I'm 50 shades of fucked up," who can blame him?

Well, not us. Especially since Grey's backstory is basically the same as Dornan's Paul Spector on "The Fall." [SPOILER ALERT] Both men have brunette mothers who died by suicide when the men were children. Those maternal deaths, in turn, motivate each man's desires. The contrast is while Spector stalks and kills brunettes, Grey "likes to whip little brown-haired girls" for sexual fulfillment. Not that anyone could tell them apart based on their respective dialogue. Ahead, 11 quotes that ask the question: Can you tell the difference between Christian Grey and a serial killer?
