At least, the film goes out of the way to show the use of condoms.

In terms of story and character, this film is in desperate need of a safe word.

Overlong, too clinical in design, and based on lowest common denominator entertainment (or so I'm told), Fifty Shades of Grey still manages to be engaging, funny, and unexpectedly human.

Given that this is her second film, [Sam] Taylor-Johnson directs the film with taste and care by focusing on the interactions between Ana and Christian rather than the sexual side of the story and the film looks stunning.

Every fiber of my being is screaming at her to send this man packing.

The dialogue is terrible and Dornan's Grey is so humourless that any vaguely funny lines fall utterly flat. On the plus side Johnson does her best with what she's been given, Ana is a Thomas Hardy fan, and Grey has a nice kitchen.

The entire palate of the film was cool and gray, which doesn't do much to incite passion. and I don't think we should blame the actors.

Fifty Shades of Grey is that hot date you bring home to discover (s)he's a cold fish between the sheets.
