"Fifty Shades of Grey" is not a family-friendly film, especially when you're the star.

Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson's daughter Dakota Johnson takes on the role of the virgin-turned-S&M goddess Anastasia Steele in the erotic film, but despite this family's show-business background, this leading lady isn't too keen on having her mother view the movie.

"I have not seen 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' I don't think I'm going to see it," the 56-year-old actress admitted to Indiewire, adding that her 24-year-old daughter told her parents, "'You guys cannot come. There's no way.' So we're not going."

She may not see the movie, but Griffith did get a glimpse of the whips and chains. "I did go visit for a couple of days when they were shooting just normal stuff. I did see the Room of Pain -- I did go in there and check it out."

Gushing over her daughter, Griffith continued, "She's amazing -- so good. It's just so beautiful to see her doing this. She had her mom and her dad and her grandmother and she's just taken us all and thrown us away. She's like, 'Here I am.'"

Griffith will be visiting Dakota on set of her next movie being filmed in Italy where she stars alongside Johnny Depp in "Black Mass."

Do you think Dakota should let her parents see "Fifty Shades of Grey"? The highly anticipated book-turned-movie hits theaters Feb. 13, 2015.
