Fifty Shades Darker made it abundantly clear that there’s nothing a chick loves more than a ball, be it a masquerade event or two small silver ones to stick where the sun don’t shine. Even if your boyfriend is a controlling billionaire sadist who orders your meals, chooses your dresses and BUYS THE COMPANY YOU WORK FOR, forget it all in the name of a rollicking good ball. Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) knows this, and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) finds out in the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, a film probably best summed up by the man himself when he splutters “I don’t know whether to worship you at your feet or spank you.”

For all its structural and psychological deficiencies, it’s hard not to enjoy Fifty Shades Darker on its own lusciously limited terms.

For supposed trash, Fifty Shades Darker offers a fair amount to ponder.

Let's be honest, nobody was expecting this to be The Godfather Part II, but at least it's not Basic Instinct 2.

If you're a Fifty Shades fan, you'll definitely get what you want from this sequel - more of the same, but with more sex.

The darkest thing about this ... are the black looks of audience members wondering where even the slight charms of the first picture have gone to.

A concluding installment is already en route; expect diminishing returns every Valentine's Day.

The most perverse thing about Fifty Shades Darker is the notion that anyone anywhere ever thought it was a good idea in the first place.
