Embarrassing for the future Mr. Grey
1 February 2015 | by (Florida, United States) – See all my reviews

I don't even get this to be honest - it's ten minutes of hunh? What the? Jamie Dornan is in a grand total of about 70 seconds of the finished product and it is inexplicably awful. I imagine once Fifty Shades of Grey comes out there will be other embarrassing moments in Jamie's pre-Mr. Grey career that will crop up to remind him where he started. This is one of those. And unfortunately for the audience he is not in his underwear at any point.

You can see he does have some screen presence but it is completely wasted here in a short film that looks like someone used their smartphone to make it. No, it's not even that good. I find it unlikely that anyone got paid for this. It seems like it might have been some kind of inside joke.
