Lisa Wilkinson's awesomely coldhearted review of 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' goes viral

*UPDATE: You can now watch the video at Nine's JumpIn.

"Hmm, I wonder what Lisa Wilkinson really thought of Fifty Shades Of Grey?" is not a question you'll be asking yourself after viewing this video.

The Today host delivered a scathing verbal smackdown on the new film on yesterday's morning show that's since gone viral, being picked up by international sites including Huffington Post and Jezebel.

"100 million copies sold must make a good movie, right? Wrong! Fifty Shades Of Grey is, quite simply, the worst movie I've ever seen," begins Wilkinson, as Karl Stefanovic delightfully oohs and aahs at his co-host's real-talk bombshells.

"Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey is a 30-something jerk of a billionaire who never seems to work. 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 singlehandedly sells women across the world short. Yes, Fifty Shades Of Grey is 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."

Wilkinson wraps up her review by awarding the film 'one star out of five' ("and that's only because of the excellent Choc-Top I consoled myself with later," she adds), and outlining that no, it didn't lead to bedroom fun times like her husband Peter FitzSimons might've hoped.

"And I know you're wondering, as to Pete," she says. "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."

OH SNAP, insert your choice of appropriate 'mic drop' GIF here.

Despite Wilkinson's review, the film has already been a hit in Australia for Universal, becoming the studio's "second-biggest opening day of all time", with more box office records expected to be broken this opening weekend. That's a lot of people's corn being popped.
