Dakota Johnson shines in this clunky, boring and domesticated sex ruse. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 7, 2017
There is an awful lot of rose-tinted nostalgia here for a time when women sat passively while powerful men threw wealth at them, but the interesting difference here is that the power dynamic between Red Riding Hood and the Wolf shifts.

October 30, 2017
Shortage of exotic shenanigans apart, artist-turned-director Sam Taylor-Johnson has delivered a decently acted and technically well-made adaptation of what remains a fundamentally silly and, at times, simply rather unpleasant story.
October 17, 2017
I've seen way worse movies aimed at men and boys, so I think everyone can chill out about a mediocre movie aimed at women.
September 20, 2017
It may not be your conventional Valentine's Day date movie, but it looks set to give audiences more pleasure than pain.
August 16, 2017
The retention of the style of the book and its settings merges with a cinematic story more focused on buildup than execution.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
August 14, 2017
The film's a hell of a ride, often a fun and thought-provoking one, even though it's all such camp.
August 11, 2017
In the run-up to [Fifty Shades of Grey]'s opening, I was surprised at the promotional efforts of NBC's "Today" show in the daily banter of the hosts and beyond.
August 1, 2017
Fifty Shades of Grey is so much smarter than its source material, but smarter in this case doesn't mean better. Not where it counts, at least.
June 27, 2017
Alas, I was a reluctant Dominant because the movie itself is such a mousey, uninvolving little thing that somebody had to step up.
May 31, 2017
The most anticipated release of the year is not much more than a spanking great bore.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 26, 2017
Then the lights went down, and guess what? Fifty Shades of Grey turned out to be not just entertaining-at least until the clunky, exasperating final minute-but it also knows exactly what it's doing.
October 23, 2016
Not as dirty as we were led to believe by the ads.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
June 3, 2016
Girls memorize the lines! But it's not a 'Rocky Horror' type cultural event; it's a lukewarm soft-core-porn soap opera-basically 'Pretty Woman' with spanking.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
May 28, 2016
I wish it had either been much better or much worse.
May 15, 2016
In the lacking of an engaging subjectivity, the narrative of sexual awakening falls flat.
Full Review | Original Score: Strongly Not Recommended
May 12, 2016
While the film is arguably no better or worse than its literary source, it does shatter the fantasies of sexual desire and sexual pleasure constructed within the novel.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 26, 2016
A guilty, if not particularly memorable, pleasure.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 10, 2016
Funny (often intentionally!), ferociously unsexy, and roundly entertaining from beginning to end.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
February 23, 2016
It's a warped, disturbingly abusive adult fairy tale from start to finish.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
