Review: 

My son has been wanting to watch this since it came out...the husband and I didn't even end up seeing it in the theater (a travesty), but saw it as soon as it hit cable. I'd been trying to avoid having to explain to him what 'pegging' is...but he's twelve. From what I've heard about seventh grade boys so far, a little 'pegging' is the least of my worries.

My son was totally unimpressed by the 'pegging'. He did not bat an eye at all. He said, "There wasn't even any nudity." Thanks, Urban Dictionary!

As wrong as Wolverine got its portrayal of Deadpool, Deadpool the film gets it right. It's 110% on back of Ryan Reynolds. I truly don't think there's another actor on this planet, or even in this galaxy, that could have given life to Deadpool.

Not to say that the rest of the casting isn't phenomenal. Why isn't Morena Baccarin a bigger star? I mean, she's starred on a lot of shows like Firefly and V and Gotham, but why isn't she a bigger movie star? Hmmm...T.J. Miller was also an entertaining addition. He reminds me of a guy I almost dated before I met my husband, like literally a week before I met my husband. He came to my 24th birthday party, but I got too fucked up and passed out before we cvould even talk. I don't think it would have worked out though - a friend told me that his previous girlfriend had messed up his testicles by playing with them too much and he had to have surgery on them. I can't handle that kind of pressure!

With the recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox by Disney, I'm imagining a world where the Avengers can hang out with Deadpool...and maybe, just maybe...someone can finally make a good Fantastic Four movie. Here's to hoping.
