(2018) (Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Erotic Drama: A billionaire and his new bride, who are heavily into kinky sex, are threatened by a deranged man from both of their pasts.
- Billionaire Christian Gray (JAMIE DORNAN) marries Anastasia Steele (DAKOTA JOHNSON) in a lavish ceremony attended by his mother and father, Grace and Carrick (MARCIA GAY HARDEN and ANDREW AIRLIE); his siblings Elliott (LUKE GRIMES) and Mia (RITA ORA); Elliott's girlfriend Kate (ELOISE MUMFORD); members of the Pacific Northwest's corporate elite; and, of course, the paparazzi.
But as Christian and Ana honeymoon in Paris, disgraced editor Jack Hyde (ERIC JOHNSON) is back in Seattle plotting their demise after having been fired by Christian and rejected sexually by Ana. He sets fire to the server room at Christian's company, steals personal files on Gray and his family, and ultimately plots two kidnappings. Christian hires extra security personnel in the form of Sawyer (BRANT DAUGHERTY) and Prescott (KIRSTEN ALTER) to protect his new wife.
Meanwhile, minor subplots abound. Ana has to put a flirty architect named Gia (ARIELLE KEBBEL) in her place. Elliott has to overcome his commitment phobia and pop the question to Kate. Ana forgets to take her birth control and has to tell Christian, who has already told her he wants to wait on starting a family. And the two continue to engage in kinky, sadomasochistic sex in their penthouse "Red Room" and elsewhere.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they liked either of the first two films in this series they probably will, while older teens may be attracted to its touted mystique as a mainstream film featuring loads of kinky, S&M sex.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For strong sexual content, nudity, and language.
