Fifty Shades of Black

Fifty-Shades-of-Black-posterDirector: Michael Tiddes

Writer: Marlon Wayans, Rick Alvarez

Cast: Marlon Wayans, Kali Hawk, Jane Seymour, Fred Willard

Cert: 15

Running time: 92mins

Year: 2016


What’s the story: Erotic blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey gets an African-Americanised spanking in this potty-mouthed spoof starring Marlon Wayans as kinky millionaire Christian Black. Kali Hawk plays Hannah Steale, a timid student who falls under his spell (and desk), only to discover that his sexual habits are as dodgy as his business practices. Prepare for all the whips, quips and prosthetic di…, erm, genitalia you can take in an unfettered parody that shows no mercy. Not even to Jane Seymour as Christian’s racist adoptive mum. You have been warned.

The Overnight

The-Overnight-posterDirector: Patrick Brice

Cast: Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman, Judith Godrèche

Cert: 15

Running time: 79mins

Year: 2015


The lowdown: A successful example of that most difficult beast, the sex comedy, The Overnight is a sophisticated, smutty delight.

The full verdict: In the tradition of Carnage or While We’re Young, The Overnight is a textbook example of how to make a nightmare comedy of social awkwardn...

The To Do List

The To Do List - Aubrey Plaza poster sex comedyDirector: Maggie Carey

Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Johnny Simmons, Alia Shawkat, Donald Glover, Bill Hader, Jack McBrayer, Andy Samberg, Clark Gregg, Connie Britton

Cert: 15

Running time: 104 mins

Year: 2013

The lowdown: Lewd, crude, non-judgemental and kinda sweet, Maggie Carey’s debut feature is likely to split audiences. Aubrey Plaza heads up this early 1990s set sex comedy as a brain boning up on sexcapades before embarking on her college years. With chuckles and naughtiness that would make American Pie heat over, this is the movie your parents warned you about.
