Reviewer Rating Review
Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine88 - I didn't read all three of E.L. James "Fifty Shades of Grey" novels - I listened to them. These books on tape were the highlight of my day while working for a mortgage company doing tedious, monotonous, brain numbing data entry. No sooner did I finish Fifty Shades, I ordered up "Fifty Shades Darker", followed by "Fifty Shades Freed". It was a period of time when I needed a heavy dose of escapism and obviously, I wasn't alone. So I'm basing my score on the fact that the movie is the book come to life with just the right edits. Therefore, it made me happy and nostalgic. If I hadn't read the book, then my score would be much lower, as I would imagine the bare bones plot and PG rated BDSM would be disappointing if you were expecting something darker or gritty.

Sober Film Chick Mary Dieng50 - Despite their lack of chemistry at the Golden Globe awards, Johnson and Dornan bring the heat, and are solid casting choices. Fans of the book should feel relatively satisfied with the film.
