CHICAGO – Only masochists and other gluttons for punishment will be heading to the theaters for “Fifty Shades Freed.” But be sure to grab a blindfold, because you can at least get 40 winks while the incompetent and unintentionally hilarious Fifty Shades Trilogy reaches its deadly dull climax.

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 1.5/5.0
Rating: 1.5/5.0

In this final chapter audiences are finally “freed” from this franchise, which comes as a relief not just to me, but also (none too soon) for the actors involved. Over three films of S&M softcore sex, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson have all the chemistry of two people on a first date that won’t get to first base. They’re now Mr. & Mrs. Grey, and Johnson’s Anastasia has developed a spine to occasionally stand up to her bad boy billionaire husband, Dornan’s Christian.

”Fifty Shades Freed” opens everywhere on February 9th. Featuring Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson, Marcia Gay Harden and Kim Basinger. Screenplay adapted by Niall Leonard. Directed by James Foley. Rated “R”

  • Speech & Debate (stage play)

    CHICAGO – “Speech & Debate,” the latest production from the mighty Brown Paper Box Company, continues their tradition of thinking outside that “box” in presenting storefront theater that makes a statement and a difference. “Speech” goes inside America by showcasing the outsiders… those who create art because they can’t get it right in real life. This non-equity Chicago stage play premiere is finely tuned and wonderfully acted, and runs through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • We're Gonna Be Okay

    CHICAGO – The 1960s were a time of historical social transition. The movements – civil rights, feminist, gay rights – all had roots in that tumultuous decade. The Chicago premiere of Basil Kreimendahl’s “We’re Gonna Be Okay” echoes all of those movements in its characters, and collides them against the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the American Theater Company through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
