When Anastasia Steele, a literature student, goes to interview the wealthy Christian Grey, as a favor to her roommate Kate Kavanagh, she encounters a beautiful, brilliant and intimidating man. The innocent and naive Ana started to realize she wants him, despite his enigmatic reserve and advice, she finds herself desperate to get close to him. Not able to resist Ana’s beauty and independent spirit, Christian Grey admits he wants her too, but in his own terms. Ana hesitates as she discovers the singular tastes of Christian Grey – despite the embellishments of success, his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family – Grey is consumed by the need to control everything.

    Keep in mind that I've read the book. The writing is laughable and sophomoric. It's the literary version of redtube. If you pay close attention, you'll realize that it's Twilight fan fiction. I'm sorry, women are idiots (NOT ALL OF THEM). Only women would read an erotic novel and think it's an excellent piece of romantic literature. I honestly felt like I was reading the playbill for a bad porno.

    Now, onto the film…

    The directing – Okay, I guess?

    The acting – Jamie Dorman's American accent… Just, terrible. I honestly thought Keanu Reeves had a better accent in Dracula. Dakota is good, but if you're a guy, you're probably going in just to see her get rammed.

    The script – Just like the book.

    What you'll actually go in for – A tit here, an ass there. Probably something you'd spend your time "pleasuring" yourself to.

    Of course, it's impossible to make a good movie adaption of a crap book. And I came on here today to see a 4.0? At least I'm not the only one. Lol

    I would really like to see this fail hard, just to see the plan for two sequels get put on the shelf. But with the amount of fangirls with wet panties, this will probably end up passing the $1 billion mark…

    EDIT: I'm serious here, girls. You need to stop downvoting my review and making me feel bad about myself. Please, try to be more compassionate. As you may or may not know, I am of fragile ego, and any more little down-arrows could lead me into a serious depressive state of insomnia, suicidal thoughts, substance abuse, and obsessive masturbation. You have to be a little more considerate when you so brazenly downvote people's reviews, because, in a way, you're downvoting the people themselves.

    EDIT EDIT: I'm getting too many messages from puerile fangirls saying this edit makes me look immature. Please get an education, and when you do, come back here, and see how much of a fool you'd made of yourself because you took the edit seriously.

    This movie is atrocious beyond words, and the first movie from which I've ever walked out (an hour and 17 minutes into it). The session was full of giggling middle-aged women, wetting themselves with anticipation – I cannot believe this book and movie has appeal. Are women really so bored, so desperate, that this is what gets them off?? The acting was appalling – I guess that's the end of Ms Johnson & Mr Dornan's careers. And I wouldn't be surprised if the actors who refused the role of Christian Grey are secretly relieved they had the sense to reject it! The script was laughable. No chemistry between the two leads. As for the 'eroticism'…..it was completely lacking. Stilted, awkward, poor cinematography, cheesy scripting. Just terrible.

    Do not waste your time or money with this.

    I don't want to spoil a lot, so ill just give ratings with a brief description on certain elements of this so-called "film".

    Acting; 1/10. The acting was misplaced, awkward.. not to look at. At least convince us you're an intense guy, Mr. Grey.

    Plot: 1/10. that wasn't a plot for a normal movie, it was a plot for soft-core porn.. which had as terrible acting in it as real porn.

    Camera work/scenery/etc. 7/10 for what it is.. great camera work i guess and good scenery

    Romance; 2/10. I've seen the notebook… that's romance. This is a poor attempt to romance. It tries to tell you they're madly in love, but it's just a weird sexual relationship.

    Drama: 1/10. there is no thrill.. no intense things going on. There is no drama in this soft-core-erotic-drama.

    "The deeds" 10/10.. they did it. so.. can't give it any lower points than this.

    Overall, it's was horrible acted, plot-less, non-romantic nor drama movie about a girl being horny and the guy doing an attempt of BDSM, which comes down to.. soft-core.. almost nothing different than normal sex with bondage.. boring sh*t.

    on that note, go watch the kings man; secret service. that's one of the best action movies i've seen in a while!

    Okay. So I have not read the book, (being a male), and I went with one of my female friends who HAD read the book, (and she said she had enjoyed it) — although having said that, she had read it a number of years ago.

    We paid our money and we took our seats. The film began; and I have to say that the wooden acting, the cruddy screenplay, the corny dialogue, the ridiculous script, the highly improbable storyline, were all just TOO much for us! (And not just us it seems! As we could hear titters from the audience at large as well coming from dialogue within the story that were supposed to be serious scenes — so not just us I hasten to add)…

    We gave it half an hour and then I leaned over to my friend and said "Do you think there's any chance they will give us our money back?? What do you think to it?" — and thank God she replied, "Oh thank Heavens you said that; I can't stand it another minute! Lets just get outta here!!!!!!! It's just terrible".

    We got our money back. We complained it was nothing like the book and that we demanded a refund as had only seen half an hour of the movie, and hey presto they refunded my credit card! No questions asked!

    I give this rubbish 1 star; and that was for the pretty outdoor scenery!

    Don't waste your time with it — it is Hollywood at it's worst.
