I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I think I would have enjoyed “Fifty Shades of Black” (2016) more if I had read “Fifty Shades of Grey” or seen the movie. I’m pretty familiar with Marlon Wayans’ comic rip-off flicks, and some are funny (or at least have funny parts). This one just seemed lazy or – and this is the worst possible thing you can say about a comedy – boring. And a lot of it is just gross, or derivative. Maybe “Grey” is that awful, too. But like I said, I didn’t see/read it, so I don’t know.
