(at around 19 mins) Upon further inspection of the Deadpool list in Weasel's bar, with the exception of Weasel's choice of Wade Wilson and Wade Wilson's J. Boothe, the rest of the names are famous celebrities. Listing in APA format (starting with the left column, from top to bottom):
(at around 9 mins) Right after the flipping SUV settles on its side, the first car comes to a stop parallel to the SUV and sits almost dead middle of the expressway. When the bad guys approach the SUV, the first car is now over to the side and is no longer parallel to the SUV. See more »
Kinda lonesome back here.

The scene after the credits shows Deadpool in a bathrobe, making fun of you, the viewer, for sticking around for so long. It is an homage to the post-credit scene in Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986). He also talks about the sequel, and says it will feature Cable. Then he makes a few jokes about the casting, and pokes at other movies that usually tease future movies in these scenes. The final "chika-chikaa" he does refers to the song "Oh, Yeah", by Yello, which is featured in that movie. See more »

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.
