The Reviews Are Out: 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Does Not Suck

The first reviews of the highly anticipated movie hit the Web Tuesday.

The first reviews of "Fifty Shades of Grey" hit the Web Tuesday. OK, from the get-go: apparently it is not crap. 

Granted, only 11 reviews were in Tuesday afternoon, but the flick was sitting at a 73 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The general consensus? The movie is better than the book. That's according to both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety.

Though another common thread — the flick lacks the tension, sizzle and frankly, sex, people were hoping for. 

The Wrap's summary: "'Fifty Shades' doesn’t exactly leave me panting for more, but it certainly knows how to keep a girl happy during its running time."

And honestly, do the critics' reviews matter at this point? The movie is on track for a huge opening weekend.
