Today show host Lisa Wilkinson made headlines when she attacked one of the biggest movies made last year and now she’s back at it.

As the trailer for the new ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ movie was released, Lisa couldn’t hold back her disgust as entertainment reporter Richard ‘Dickie’ Wilkins delivered his story on camera.

The trailer to the follow up of the worldwide hit ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ was released yesterday and fans around the world jumped on it with excitement.

Not Lisa though! When the camera panned to her after Dickie’s report, Lisa sat there with pursed lips before declaring it “disgusting” and “pathetic”.

Last year she found lots of support and a fair bit of criticism too for her review of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ branding it “more appalling than appealing”.

“It’s domestic violence dressed up as erotica and if there’s one thing this movie is not, it’s erotic,” she said.

“Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey is the thirty-something jerk of a billionaire who never seems to work,” she said, adding he is “an emotionally crippled narcissist no one could love”.

“Meanwhile Dakota Johnson is the one dimensional lip-biting (could someone get that girl a chapstick) pathetic Anastasia Steele who for no discernible reason falls in love with the aforementioned jerk and single handedly sells women across the world short,” she continued.

She gave the movie one star out of five and said that was only because of the choc top she enjoyed while watching it, adding her husband did not “get lucky” when she got home.

“No he didn’t get lucky last night because after two hours of complete drivel, I need more than a choc top to pop my corn,” she candidly admitted.

You can watch the trailer for the new film below. Will you be seeing it? Is this movie disgusting or just a bit of fun?

    Typical media … Goes off half cocked because she is a prudish , despondent individual who perhaps should take all three books in context.
    Pretty sad really.

    It’s a movie, you have the choice to see it or not. People who enjoyed the book may not enjoy the movie,surely everyone is entitled to choose.

  3. i agree with lisa i never saw the movie or read the book .that was my choice but lets face it every movie has the standard sex scene most of them to xcpliciet. to the point of embaressing .nothing is sacred anymore

      How can you agree without any knowledge of the books or movie ??

      This is no ordinary book, I gave it to my adult girls to let them know that his behaviour is wrong and don’t fall for sic rich guy. The 3rd book was ok. Definitly not written well.

    No one is making you read the books or go to the movies so I can’t understand why people carry on so much People have choices and interprete things different ways I for one didn’t interprete the books or the first movie the same as Lisa

    If you haven’t read the books or seen the movie you really can’t say anything about them. Is it okay to go and watch men killing each other, blowing up villages, cities, random people? So many movies are a million time more violent than 50 Shades but do they get canned like this?? No…. Get a grip Lisa and other like her…it’s a movie…don’t go, don’t read and don’t comment. Easy.

  7. Linda mcvey  

    So don’t watch it, that easy.

  8. Elizabeth Gardner  

    I read the books found them interesting but did not see how they could possibly make the first one into a movie it was too involved. They did and I tried three times to watch it and it was just crap, nothing like the book with virtually no story to it. Every time I just gave up because it was ridiculous. I do not see for a minute how they are ever going to make a movie out of the next two books. I love movies but I will not watch absolute garbage and that is what that first one is.

  9. Read the first 4-5 pages of the book so boring just sex for sex sake no story , went to the movie with some friends that was even worse came out after 15 minutes ,it is what Lia says and no I don’t very often agree with TV presenters but the books are porn and the movie well neither actors are any good at their jobs total drivel they wont get my money with the second one

  10. Robyn Mcleod  

    You didn’t like the movie then Lisa! I must admit to having not read the book or bother seeing the movie. Not because I am prudish it has all been done before, Jackie Collins did this stuff years ago, honestly it is just become plain boring how many times do you rehash something.

  11. Pamela  

    Lisa has the right to her opinion, same as all those who comment here – or elsewhere.

  12. Tim  

    Lisa is getting as cranky as her husband. If you don’t like the film theme don’t go and watch it, simple. Differant strokes for differant folks.
