Fifty Shades of Black (2016)
Critic Consensus: Wildly erratic even for a spoof movie, Fifty Shades of Black bears the unfortunate distinction of offering fewer laughs than the unintentionally funny film it's trying to lampoon.

News & Interviews for Fifty Shades of Black
Critic Reviews for Fifty Shades of Black
The movie's mean-spiritedness becomes even more painful than the dippiness of the source material.
Wayans is ... incapable of limiting himself to parodying one movie at a time, tossing in riffs on Whiplash, Magic Mike, and Zero Dark Thirty to varying degrees of success.
As with other staples of the screen-parody genre, the comic bull's-eyes arrive only intermittently.
Wayans continues his pattern of creating movie simulacra - calling them "parodies" or even "spoofs" puts far too fine a point on it - whereby we're supposed to laugh because we recognize the thing that is being reenacted.
Audience Reviews for Fifty Shades of Black
Fifty Shades of Black is a no-holds-barred, incredibly reverent and outrageous parody film. While mainly a spoof of Fifty Shades of Gray, there are also sketches of other recent hit films (such as Magic Mike). Marlon Wayans leads the cast and delivers a hilarious performance, and Jane Seymour is hysterical in a small supporting role. But the crudeness and vulgarity is a bit much, and some of the jokes get beat to death. It delivers a lot of laughs, but Fifty Shades of Black is unable to strike the right balance of raunch and comedy.
I'm ashamed for laughing in 2 scenes in this movie.
Why did I put myself through this? Fifty Shades of Black is another spoof film from Marlon Wayans (who used to be funny...I think?), this time spoofing Fifty Shades of Grey. I can safely say I did not laugh once, it was like I was dead inside whilst watching this. The gags were horrendous and the majority of them were cringeworthy. Wayans is charismatic, but it's not enough to keep me or anyone else entertained.
