Personally I think the movie focuses on her childish, selfish, obsessed with money & Ashley side. But she has good sides too, she's strong, hardworking, obstinate and generous. So I fear that you might end up not liking her at all if you start with the movie.
I hated the movie for all the reasons you stated. And, because after all she went through, she didn't seem to have grown at all.

Maybe I should try the book instead.
