Bondage With a Side of Syrup

Any book-turned-movie that originated as Twilight fanfiction has got to be laughable. And probably not intentionally. Fifty Shades of Grey has done way more than give middle-aged women something to obsess over. It’s inspired a string of celebrity readings, plenty of parodies and a ton of jokes. So if you’re too embarrassed to actually see the movie, but fear you’re missing out on the world’s largest prank against humanity, then we've got a great, sane option for you: See it along with a bunch of comedians who will offer real-time commentary. Instead of laughing at how bad the movie is, you can laugh with the comedians at how bad the movie is. Austin comedy group Master Pancake will rip it a new one at 5 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. Sunday at the Alamo Drafthouse (501 W. Belt Line Road, Richardson). Tickets are $13.50 at drafthouse.com/dfw.
Sun., March 8, 5 & 8:15 p.m., 2015
