If you're the world's biggest fan of Fifty Shades Of Grey, you probably shouldn't have clicked on this link. That's because the following video is going to tear your favorite movie to shreds. The rest of you, hit the play button below and enjoy!
Cinema Sins has come out with the latest episode of their "Everything Wrong With..." series, and while most of these are typically contained under 15 minutes, that simply wasn't enough time for Fifty Shades of Grey. Instead, this movie takes about 18 minutes of beatings, and in the process ranks up one of the biggest sin counters you'll see.
So where do we begin talking about all of the flaws in Fifty Shades of Grey? Well, the basic plot of the film is as good a jumping-off point as we'll get, as it's rather amazing just how dull the Sam Taylor-Johnson-directed drama is. When it's all boiled down, the movie is about a young girl who is for some reason forced to decide whether or not she wants to sign a contract that will have her enter an abusive relationship with a sadistic asshole whose only positive quality is a full bank account. All of the big issues pour out from there, from the fact that the movie's story feels extremely dragged out to the complete lack of chemistry between the two leads. And let's also not forget that the movie was sold on being extremely graphic and BDSM-filled, and ultimately has a grand total of 14 spanks.
Fifty Shades of Grey was met with mass critic disapproval when it was released back in February, and while the movie started out as a box office hit, the popularity was shockingly short-lived here in the United States. The film set a February opening week record by pulling in an impressive $85 million in its first three days - but it was all downhill from there. Bad buzz did unkind things to the movie's remaining weeks in release in America, and in its second weekend its numbers plummeted nearly 74 percent (normally the drop off is more like 50 percent). Thanks to a low budget and huge international box office performance, the film was still considered to be a big hit, but surely the folks at Universal Pictures couldn't have been happy about the hit.
Of course, this is far from the end of the Fifty Shades franchise, as the video points out that there are still two more movies set to be released (despite the fact that the studio got off to a slow start putting them together). Universal announced back in April that they are planning to have the first sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, in theaters on February 10, 2017, and that chapter will be followed by Fifty Shades Freed on February 9, 2018.
