Fifty Shades of Gray has only one truly fatal flaw

I never got the Fifty Shades of grey books by EL James. I enjoy a good novel, but this kind of thing just isn’t my thing. So when the movies came out, I wasn’t interested either.

The books and films only came onto my radar because they were so wildly successful with other women my age. Indeed, the film grossed nearly $600 million against a $40 million budget.

Women flocked to theaters on Valentine’s Day weekend 2015, then went back for more.

But critics hated it. Although they did note that it was at least better than the book, which was also not well received by critics.

In any case, I hardly paid attention to it.
