Earlier in the thread, I mentioned how I worried about the Wade Wilson parts where he's just Van Wilder, well, let me tell you the way they go back and fourth with Wade and Deadpool in the storytelling works expertly in not letting it Van Wild itself.
This felt like the comic came to life. The whole movie fit the spirit of the character perfectly.
You guys should see it ASAP. I couldn't really fault this movie on any major level. I could easily point out a few tweaks here and there that could have made it a bit better but seriously, overall it's almost perfect.
I DON'T WANT to like anything with Ryan Reynolds in it, so this one had to put in some work...
And it delivered beyond my wildest dreams.
You shouldn't be surprised. He was awesome in The Nines.
But seriously, I agree with all of this. Ryan killed it. FOX stayed the fuck out of the way, and the team made up for the lack of budget by just mocking it in the film. Fucking brilliant.
Also, the Ferris Beuhler ending was fucking excellent.

I basically am still loving the idea that after the internet went apeshit over the leaked footage, someone at 20th Century Fox probably literally said "Let's make a movie version of THAT," and here we are almost 2 years later.
