* The movie received either the highest, or near-highest ratings even in countries lenient towards sexual content like the Netherlands, Germany or Scandinavia. In France, the movie only got a ''12'' rating (the next lowest is Sweden and Denmark with a 15 rating, which is still the highest rating in those countries). And then the fact that the MediaWatchdog of France thought the rating was ''too high'' and deserved the equivalent of an all-ages rating. Given what the movie is (in)famous for, it isn't so much a commentary on [[NationalStereotypes French]] [[EuropeansAreKinky cultural values]] as it is a commentary on [[FetishRetardant the movie itself]].

* These thorough, and justifiably angry and sarcastic, [[http://redlemonade.blogspot.com/p/fifty-shades-of-tedious-fuckery.html recaps of the three novels]]. The running commentary makes fun of both the terrible writing and the terrible relationships standards, and is way more researched that the series itself (admittedly, not hard to pull ''that'' off).
