50 shades of whack! Which is 49 shades better than the movie they parody
29 January 2016 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

I find it strange that Marlon Wayans found the need to parody what is already hands down the funnest movie of 2015. Does a bad movie, really need a parody? Seems redundant, but they did it.

50 shades of black has some decent jokes that poke fun at how outrageous 50 Shades of Grey is (although my favorite bit was one that parodied Whiplash with Florence Henderson playing a music teacher training young boys to use their "instruments"), but the laughs are not constant enough through the entire movie to justify the money spent.

It's good that Wanyans has no problem making light of himself, cause it's those skits that made for the most laugh out loud experience , but he also has no problem making a joke at someone else's expense. I probability would not care if the jokes were funny. There recent though, with a joke about the 2016 presidential campaign thrown in the mix.

It's packed with enough laughs to get something out of it, but the material used to make this was too weak itself for this movie to be all that good.
