This Might Be The Best Fifty Shades Of Grey Review Ever

The reviews for Fifty Shades of Grey are pouring in, and, well, it's safe to say that the film didn't really go over Down Under. Not for one Australian TV personality, at least.

Lisa Wilkinson of Australia's Today program launched into a scathing attack on the Jamie Dornan/Dakota Johnson film. Not even Christian Grey could stomach this kind of punishment. 

Wilkinson admitted not having read any of E.L. James' saucy books, which perhaps left her unprepared for the film's BDSM themes. The presenter blasted the relationship between Christian and Ana as "domestic violence dressed up as erotica," noting that the story "single-handedly sells women across the world short." Boom.

Wilkinson didn't mince her words. She called the movie "quite simply, the worst film I've ever seen" and gave it just one star out of five. Her husband, Pete, did not "get lucky" after the viewing, and is unlikely to ever have sex again. 

There you have it. We'd hate to put you off your big Valentine's Day trip to the cinema, but the lady makes a compelling case. (Jezebel)
