If you haven’t watched the movie yet, don’t get your hopes up too high!


Fifty Shades Darker, the second film in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, opened this week and like its predecessor, people have a lot to say about it. As of February 15, 2017, Fifty Shades Darker has grossed $65.3 million in the United States and Canada and $97.8 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $163.1 million, against a production budget of $55 million.

Although it is doing well at the box office, much like its predecessor, Fifty Shades Darker received criticism for its screenplay, narrative and Dornan's performance. On review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes the film has an approval rating of 9% based on 144 reviews, with an average rating of 3.4/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Lacking enough chemistry heat or narrative friction to satisfy, the limp Fifty Shades Darker wants to be kinky but only serves as its own form of punishment." On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating to reviews, the film has a score of 33 out of 100, based on 39 critics, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews". Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "B+" on an A+ to F scale, an improvement over the "C+" earned by its predecessor.

ScreenCrush released a remix of the Fifty Shades Darker trailer featuring some of its most scathing reviews. A few examples: The Boston Globe‘s Meredith Goldstein claiming, “I found myself groaning (not in a sexy way)” and Alonso Duralde from The Wrap calling the sequel an “un-asked-for collaboration between the Hallmark and Playboy channels.”

And yes, these are taken from real reviews.
