(at around 33 mins) The business card used by the Recruiter (Jed Rees) reads only 555-0199. This is the same number used as Lester Burnham's business line in American Beauty (1999). Wade Wilson makes constant reference to the Recruiter being a pedophile. See more »
(at around 1h 10 mins) After finding the picture of Wade and Vanessa, Angel Dust mentions that she has seen Vanessa before. However, the two had no previous interaction at this point of the movie, nor did Angel Dust see any photos of her. It's very likely that this is how Ajax knew to find her at the strip club as Angel Dust had seen her working there previously. See more »
Kinda lonesome back here.

I am aware that to many people (especially those unfamiliar with Deadpool comic or Marvel comics at all) this movie would seem too gory, unnecessary brutal and excessively violent. But this movie is a comedy, where its main protagonist, Deadpool, should be perceived as a comedian, and Ryan Reynolds did an excellent job representing this character.
The story of Deadpool isn't complex or profound - and it wasn't meant to be. This movie is all about fun and entertainment, abundant with action, jokes, blood and foul language. Therefore, it is not suitable for children. I grew tired of people thinking that movies based on comics are intended for children only.
Related to that, I believe that many Marvel movies could have been far more successful if they didn't refrain from gory scenes. I am sorry, but if you want to make a serious combat-based movie and you make it without blood, than that movie will be all but serious.
That is why I see Deadpool as a refreshment. Nowadays many writers and directors are too worried about political correctness in their movies. That really stifles creativity and that is why today we have so many movies with great ideas but poor realization.
Thus, to me, Deadpool was a very pleasant surprise, I had fun watching it, and I intend to watch it again some time soon.
