How did they get financing to make this disaster?
31 January 2016 | by eladale-90211See all my reviews

I have always been a huge fan of parodies, so I was looking forward to this movie. My expectations were realistic. Puns, slapstick humor, and generally sophomoric humor are fine by me. These parodies don't take themselves too seriously, and neither do I. The wife and I went to the theater expecting some lighthearted fun. But, what we saw was anything but fun or funny.

This film's attempts to parody the plot of Fifty Shades of Grey were overshadowed by the stilted dialogue, lame sight gags, and ineffectual attempts to get a rise out of the audience with tired racial stereotyping and racist humor. Sexual humor was expected. But I did expect some of it to be funny. It wasn't. Most of the gags in the film were greeted by dead silence in the theater and blank stares at the screen by my fellow theater goers.

We talked about walking out of the movie after the first scene, and every scene after that until we finally did walk out 20 minutes into the movie.

Maybe there was a funny joke in that movie later on, but I am sure I will not be giving this movie a second chance. It is one of the worst movies I have even seen.
