Even Deadpool Recognizes "Deadpool" Isn't for Kids

If you haven't seen any of the advertisements or publicity for the new "Deadpool" movie, I'd be shocked. It's been quite the comprehensive ad campaign, and it's got me excited to see Ryan Reynolds play this anti-hero on the big screen.


Comic book readers know that this isn't the kind of movie to take your parents to, or your kids, or a significant other (in some/most cases). Deadpool knows this, too, which is why he even posted this letter to parent fans:


Pretty smart, if you ask me.
Though I'm not concerned about this one getting a sequel, because it's already getting solid reviews.

And I'm told the post-credits scene is worth staying around for...

See you at the movies!

PS If you've seen it already, let me know in the comments what you thought.
And no spoilers until at least after the first weekend!

  1. Right there with you, dude. I see this ALL the time in the theater world; my favorite was Avenue Q. People assumed because they involved cute puppets it would be ok. Needless to say I wasn't too surprised to see those people's seats empty after intermission.
    Scott and I have been watching the Red Band trailers for months and those were enough to make us cringe a few times, so I HOPE I know what I'm signing up for. ;)

    P.S. Any parent who thinks this is ok for their child needs to have their head checked.

    1. I'm glad to hear that the Avenue Q parents at least didn't return from intermission. My friend knows a guy who took his 10-year old to Deadpool and then proceeded to just have his kid "close his eyes" through the whole thing. So dumb, and borderline negligent.
