News anchor Lisa Wilkinson gives a scathing review on the big screen adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey
50 Shades of Grey is one of the biggest and most awaited movies of this year. Now that it is officially out in theaters, fans of the novel and curious moviegoers are now rushing to the cinemas to watch the film adaptation of the book.
Not everyone likes 50 Shades of Grey, especially Channel 9?s news anchor Lisa Wilkinson.
Wilkinson speaks up
News anchor of Australia?s ?Today?, Lisa Wilkinson, recently shared her views about the erotic novel turned movie 50 Shades of Grey during the show’s episode on February 12, 2015.
Unfortunately, the review was a bit straight forward and no holds barred.
?I’ve got something I want to get off my chest,? she began. ?Sure, I was the only woman I know who hadn?t read the books. But hey, 100 million copies sold must make a good movie, right? Wrong. ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is quite simply the worst movie I have ever seen.?
The anchor described 50 Shades of Grey as ?domestic violence dressed up as erotica? and that it is ?more appalling than appealing?
Pretty straight forward right? Well, her review gets better when she started to describe the characters of 50 Shades of Grey?specifically Christian Grey.
Wilkinson described Christian Grey (played by Jamie Dorman) as a ?30-something jerk of a billionaire who never seems to work, an emotionally crippled narcissist no one could love.? After Grey (Dorman), her attention now focuses on his partner Dakota Johnson, ?Meanwhile, Dakota Johnson is the one dimensional, lip biting, ‘could someone get that girl a chapstick,’ pathetic Anastasia Steele who for no discernible reason falls in love with the aforementioned jerk and single-handedly sells women across the world short.?
