Fifty Shades of Black

Critics 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.

  • Another depressing "cinema parody" that isn't half as amusing as the film(s) it wants us to laugh at.

  • 50 Shades of Black does, at least, have to good grace to be 50 times more entertaining than the original.

  • Even the idea that Fifty Shades of Grey might require parody seems ludicrous.

  • A spoof of the franchise that started out as Twilight fan fiction offers up another barrel for Marlon Wayans to scrape.

  • Predictable but unexpectedly enlightened.

    March 7, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The movie's mean-spiritedness becomes even more painful than the dippiness of the source material.

Audience Reviews for Fifty Shades of Black

  • Apr 05, 2017
    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.

    actually pretty entertaining if you know you're going in good, old-fashioned stupid and vulgar silliness

    I'm ashamed for laughing in 2 scenes in this movie.

    The worst comedy from Jack and Jill, badly acted, poorly directed, is a complete disaster movie, is completely atrocious. Do not know who the hell told Marlon Wayans that this was funny, probably some one who hates him. No it hurts more pay to see this movie or wasted time to see this atrocity.
