50 Shades of Grey Movie Gets Bad Reviews – Does it Matter?

By on February 12, 2015

The long awaited movie version of 50 Shades of Grey comes out on February 14, 2015. With more than 100 million books sold, women everywhere are buying the tickets to the movie with the hope that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson will do justice to the famed leading characters, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.


Unfortunately, word on the street is that the movie is not very good. Just watching the two minute previews, I could have told you that. Dakota Johnson was not the best choice of actresses for the lead role in 50 Shades of Grey. From the clips that have been shown, she is boring. Drippy and boring. From her publicity rounds on the morning shows, late night shows and everything in between – she is boring.

Ultimately, the reviews are saying:

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Review: Mediocre plot, bland characters, twisted subject matter make for bad movie’ Fox News

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ brings little pleasure’ LA Times

‘When you look at is as nothing more than horny housewife erotic fiction, it serves its purpose.’ Rotten Tomatoes

and so on and so on.

Will the bad reviews affect the bottom line at the box office? Since the seats have been sold out for weeks – probably not. The books caused quite a stir when they were released and it looks like the movie will too.

Jamie Doran and Dakota Johnson reportedly did not get along well during the filming of the movie. When asked about the sex scenes, Dornan said he repeatedly apologized to Johnson when they filmed some of the more particularly ‘heinous’ sex scenes telling, Britain’s Notebook magazine:

‘If I was about to be doing something particularly heinous to Dakota, I would apologise in advance and say, “I’m probably not going to derive a huge amount of pleasure out of this. I want you to know that.”‘

The synopsis for the movie is as follows:
The steamy tale details a masochistic relationship between a college student and a businessman, whose desires for extreme intimacy stem from secrets in his past.

Will you be seeing Fifty Shades of Grey – despite the negative ratings?
