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

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.
