Get ready to laugh so hard, you’ll spank yourself silly! Christian Black (Marlon Wayans, Scary Movie, White Chicks) has it all: power, success, and an intense desire to get freaky. Into his life comes Hannah (Kali Hawk), a young, virginal girl who may not be as innocent as she first seems. Only one gets to come out on top in this hilarious film. Featuring appearances from Mike Epps, Fred Willard and Florence Henderson, Fifty Shades of Black is a “ferociously funny” (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV), laugh-a-minute comedy!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Wildly erratic even for a spoof movie, Fifty Shades of Black bears the unfortunate distinction of offering fewer laughs than the unintentionally funny film it's trying to lampoon.

Common Sense Says
Crass parody doesn't stay on target long enough to be funny.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Fifty Shades of Black is a parody of Fifty Shades of Grey starring, co-written, and produced by Marlon Wayans. It makes fun of the Fifty Shades movie, book, and main characters, but it manages to contain less nudity (although you will see one breast and two full-frontal scenes of men's clearly fake genitalia). On the other hand, there's lots more swearing (including countless uses of "f--k," the "N" word, "motherf--ker," etc.) and vulgar references to sex and race (one character is openly racist toward her adopted children). Although the scenes are played for laughs, they do still contain BDSM, with the whips on display named after slavery-themed films like Roots, Glory, 12 Years a Slave, etc. There's also substance use and abuse by adults: The main female character gets drunk, and someone tries to spike her drink with Molly; the main male character recalls becoming a billionaire because he used to use and sell crack cocaine.
