Movie Review: 50 Shades of Black

Marlon Wayans … I have no words for you.

I took about 3 shots before I entered the theater to watch 50 Shades of Black. A parody sounded brilliant! Especially since 50 Shades of Grey was more funny than dramatic. Now I know I was in for a horrible movie. Yet, the Haunted House and Scary Movie franchises were kind of a corny funny that we could all enjoy. This movie however,  needs to be burnt!

50 Shades of Black replicated 50 Shades of Grey as far as scenes, but each scene left me feeling worse and worse about the movie. This movie tried too hard and the only people laughing in the theater laughed because the other farted.

Every scene was over the top distasteful jokes that seemed like they have been done before. Basically, Christian Black is a rich entrepreneur who stole his one and only suit and a car. He becomes infatuated with Hannah Steele, a college student, who came to interview him in place of her roommate. Her roommate, whose name I didn’t catch, reminds me a lot of Fat Amy from Pitch Perfect but a more ratchet version. Now that I think of it, it maybe it’s the same actor.

This movie is bad. I did not laugh once and I was in a good, giggly, tipsy mood. The fake prosthetic penises were not funny. When Christian Black sniffed Hannah’s panties and almost threw up, it made me feel disgusted. I did not need to see that! Also, why is everyone picking on The Weekend? This is an amazing music artist who I am sick and tired of being picked on.

I contemplated on leaving about an hour in, but since I was writing a review, I felt I should wait. Big mistake! Up until the very end, this whole movie was insulting, disgusting and demeaning. Hannah’s roommate was the only thing in this movie that seemed slightly interesting.  I think it was because her outfits were ridiculous and she kept having different hair styles that was over the top and colorful in every other scene.

I think Hollywood needs to understand these ridiculous sex jokes they have been putting on screen lately has been in poor taste. This movie was filled with bad racial stereotype jokes and sex jokes that just weren’t funny. None of this was funny. This movie probably should have gone straight to Netflix and even then, viewers should still skip

1 out of 5 stars. Don’t watch this movie! It’s 50 shades of crap.
