The Worst ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Reviews: Critics Are Raving!
Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s newest series, Critics Are Raving!, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews. Real critics. Real quotes. Really bad movies. That’s what’s Critics Are Raving! is all about.
On our tenth episode: Things are about to get darker by at least 48 shades of grey (give a take or shade or two). The first Fifty Shades of Grey wasn’t exactly a critical favorite, but it dominated the box office in the early days of 2015. The critics’ reaction to the sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, however, make the reviews of the first movie look like the ones for Moonlight. With a Rotten Tomatoes score currently hovering in the high single digits, it’s one of the worst reviewed movies of 2017 so far, and an obvious candidate for our latest Critics Are Raving! trailer.
This is our tenth Critics Are Raving! trailer, but there are more on the way — if you’ve got a movie you’d like to see featured, let us know in the comments section below or send us a tweet or Facebook message.
