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.
August 21, 2018
Sometimes a book should just remain a book and in the case of "Fifty Shades of Grey" that is exactly the case.

Fifty Shades of Grey is that hot date you bring home to discover (s)he's a cold fish between the sheets.
January 26, 2018
The second half of the film devolves into something that resembles tedious, melodramatic daytime TV.
Full Review | Original Score: C

The most anticipated release of the year is not much more than a spanking great bore.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.

If the book was aimed at women, the movie appears to be aimed at the boyfriends and husbands they will drag to the cinema, who are rewarded for their patience at sitting through the creepy pseudo-romance with ample shots of Johnson's bosoms.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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-

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.
May 15, 2016
In the lacking of an engaging subjectivity, the narrative of sexual awakening falls flat.
Full Review | Original Score: Strongly Not Recommended
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.

Dakota Johnson shines in this clunky, boring and domesticated sex ruse. [Full review in Spanish]

April 26, 2016
A guilty, if not particularly memorable, pleasure.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 11, 2018
It's superficial, it's manipulative, it's off-putting and embarrassing. But there's no denying that this says something about the moment in which the book was published and the movie released.
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
February 23, 2016
It's a warped, disturbingly abusive adult fairy tale from start to finish.
Full Review | Original Score: C-

I was more aroused by the immaculate shine on Christian's piano than anything in his boudoir of bondage: a set designer must have spent hours buffing those ivories.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 30, 2018
I'm really worried about the fact that some people (especially girls) regard Mr. Grey as an object of desire, as some sort of ideal man. [Full review in Spanish]

Grey is not a character, but a cluster of clichés... [Full review in Spanish]
