One of the best R-rated superhero movies of the year with the true sarcasm and grit of the comic books. Deadpool knows he is in a story and often breaks the fourth wall to tell the viewer exactly what is what. Great fight sequences and a love story!

Deadpool: [to the audience] I know right? You're probably thinking, "Whose b*lls did I have to fondle to get my very own movie"? I can't tell you his name, but it rhymes with "Polverine."
[In an Australian accent]
Deadpool: And let me tell you, he's got a nice pair of smooth criminals down under.
Yeah, it's me, Deadpool, and I got an offer that you can't refuse. I'm gonna wait out here, okay? It's a big house. It's funny that I only ever see two of you. It's almost like the studio couldn't afford another X-Man.
I had another Liam Neeson nightmare. I kidnapped his daughter and he just wasn't having it. They made three of those movies. At some point you have to wonder if he's just a bad parent.
"What's my name?!"
"Oh, I'll spell it out for ya."
*Spells 'Francis' in dead bodies*
"Looks aren't everything."
"Looks ARE everything! Ever heard David Beckham speak? It's like he mouth-sexed a can of helium. You think Ryan Reynolds got this far on a superior acting method?"
"I want to die a natural death at the age of 102, like the city of Detroit."
"Guy came in here looking for you. Real Grim Reaper-type. I don't know. Might further the plot."
"From the studio that inexplicably sewed his f**king mouth shut the first time comes five-time Academy Award viewer Ryan Reynolds in an eHarmony date with destiny. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you . . . me! Deadpool."

A quirky mercenary with a conscience falls into a relationship with an eccentric hooker, only to discover that his body is riddled with cancer. Desperate to cure his condition, he enters a secret program that will cure him, give him a Wolverine-like healing factor, and possibly powers as well. However, it turns out that the program is run by evil people, the cure comes with unpleasant side effects, and the experience leaves him hilariously insane and out for revenge against his tormenter. You'll believe a man can break the fourth wall!
