List Rules Vote for the most entertaining 50 Shades of Grey zingers

Fifty Shades of Grey reviews are coming in and they are wonderful. (Not, like, actually wonderful, of course. Just wonderful to read.) It seems like the slow bits of the two-hour-long S&M melodrama gave critics plenty of time to construct the perfect diss in their head before jotting it down and sharing with the entire Internet. Like the film, these bad Fifty Shades of Grey reviews are far from subtle and are super-entertaining in an, "I'm cringing, but this is kind of awesome" sort of way. Yes, there are some good reviews of 50 Shades out there, but here we've pulled one-liners from the best negative reviews of Fifty Shades of Grey because, please, that's way more fun.

If you're not the cynical type and want to make your mind up yourself, go on over to this Fifty Shades of Grey movie quotes list and re-live all of the magic between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Saw the movie and loved it? Let us know in the comments. If you loved this list, you may also enjoy The Hottest Things That Aren't Christian Grey
