The song "Careless Whisper" is referenced throughout the film as being performed by Wham!. This was confusing for a lot of audience members outside North America and Japan because in the rest of the world the song was released as the first solo single by George Michael. See more »

The opening credits are placeholders for what was in the script, since Director Tim Miller (who asked Blur Studio's Layout Supervisor Franck Balson to remove his quickly) and Ryan Reynolds were the only ones. "As written by Deadpool"; "Some douchebag's film, Starring God's perfect idiot (referring to Ryan. Accompanied by an Easter Egg of Ryan's People Magazine cover as Sexiest Man Alive.); "A hot chick"; "A British villain"; "The comic relief"; "A moody teen"; "A CGI character"; "A gratuitous cameo"; "Produced by asshats"; "Written by the real heroes here"; "Directed by an overpaid tool". There are Easter Eggs as well: The card in the wallet of Ryan in a green suit, a blurry Killebrew being on the phone, the thug with the lighter was originally a filmed joke in reference to Colin Farrell in Daredevil (2003), "Rob L." on the coffee cup is Rob Liefeld, the little sex key-chain, the Orange Number 5 card, and the Hello Kitty.

Let me say at the very beginning of this review, I loathe super hero movies. I can not stress that point enough. For me, watching anyone of the countless driveling movies which have been pumped out by studios in the name of entertainment over the past decade is, for me, akin to having teeth pulled. Painful to say the least. My friends however are addicted to every single bombastic franchise, and through sufferance, I've endured countless hours of mind numbing boredom watching yet more Lycra-clad numpties saving the earth from ridiculous threat (there are of course exceptions to the above; 'The Dark Knight', the original 'X-Men)
I was once again convinced that spending an evening with chums watching Deadpool would be an excellent waste of my time. I envisaged 15 minutes of feigned interest, followed by an hour 45 of updating my email and some cheeky online shopping. Well that new Morphy Richards kettle and toaster are still waiting for me to purchase as low and behold, shock of all shocks, this film is bloody marvellous!! Bloody, hold your knickers cause they are about to get blown off, marvellous!
The dialogue is witty, sincere, and delivered by every single actor with a naturalism which seems more like improvised off the cuff genius, than drab scripted nonsense.
The pacing of the movie is excellent. It held my interest through its entirety.
The actions scenes directed with the skill of a more seasoned director.
I was so pleased that for once, I was being forced to watch a movie that treated me like an adult, with adult humour and themes, made for adults. Not for grown children masquerading as adults.
This film is a perfect storm! Just everything is right! I look forward, to my great surprise to any squeals!
