Movie Reviews

  • the real find in Sam Taylor-Johnson's better-than-it-has-to-be adaptation of the risibly written and ludicrously popular softcore novel is Dakota Johnson
    3 of 5 by Jordan Hoffman [The Guardian ]
  • the movie Fifty Shades of Grey is considerably better written than the book. It is also sort of classy-looking, in a generic, TV-ad-for-bath-oil way
    Review rate : B- by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • the film never pretends to be other than what it really is: soft-core porn for the ladies, diluted with an "R" rating
    3 of 4 by Sara Stewart [New York Post ]
  • the dialogue, based on E.L. James' best-selling book, is laughable, the pacing is sluggish and the performances are one-note. Perhaps worst of all, chemistry is nil
    1 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • no matter its salacious reputation, "Fifty Shades of Grey" retains an uninvolving quality to the proceedings
    Review rate : C- by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE ]
  • Fifty Shades of Grey is a sex-positive but hopelessly soft-core erotic drama that fails to be even a fraction as titillating as the E.L. James books that inspired it. And yet, that's exactly why it works
    3 of 5 by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York ]
  • despite the endless sex, a highly unsatisfying encounter. Cold as a fish and almost as dumb
    0.5 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • credit goes to director Sam Taylor-Johnson and her screenwriter, Kelly Marcel, who've stripped the first book of its biggest flaws, while still honoring its essence
    3 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News ]
  • a well-cast conversation starter, by turns provocative and romance-novel gooey
    by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter ]
