When college senior Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) steps in for her sick roommate to interview prominent businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) for their campus paper, little does she realize the path her life will take.

  • The true audiences for Fifty Shades of Grey are gluttons for punishment — by boredom. show more

  • The enormous, make-or-break things are perfectly in place, and just that is enough for a reasonably enjoyable movie. But plot problems, some comically weak dialogue, repetitious scenes and a non-ending ending keep the experience a little more earthbound than it had to be. show more

  • Sitting through the turgid and tedious S&M melodrama that is Fifty Shades of Grey may feel like its own form of torture. show more

    If there was not popcorn, it would have been more of a complete waste of over 2 hours of my life. Who in there right mind would release this?

    I have read all three books and enjoyed them. I am sure that most people who read the books had a vision of what Christian would look like. I did as well and thought of different actors that might be good for the part. Most of them known actors, which of course probably would not have been right. I have seen the movie 2 times and I honestly do believe that Jamie fit the role and did a good job.Christian is very non verbal non emotional damaged human being. All of the bad comments about his acting really gets me upset and do hope that he will continue to play in the next 2 movies. Of course Dakota was perfectly cast. It ends like it did because the story is not over there are 2 more books.
