Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Deadpool is a superhero story aimed at -- and most appropriate for -- mature audiences only. It has lots of graphic violence, sex (including partial nudity), adult humor, and nonstop strong language. Unlike most other Marvel superhero films, which only hint at romance, include just a few curse words, and skip the gore, Deadpool is decidedly grown-up, bloody, and raunchy by comparison. Expect words like "f--k" in nearly every scene, plus "s--t," "a--hole," "bitch," and much more. The violence is close-up and bloody, ranging from torture and decapitation to dismemberment, brains oozing out of skulls, brutal hand-to-hand combat, and more. A racy sex montage includes naked breasts, as does a scene set in a strip club; there's also a scene where Deadpool fights while naked -- both his butt and quick, obscured glimpses of his genitals are visible. Adults also smoke and drink. All of that said, the story does ultimately promote teamwork, collaboration, and love.
Wade and Vanessa (who's initially a prostitute) flirt, kiss, and make love in a montage that includes nudity (bare breasts visible), different positions, and lots of role/food play. A scene in a strip club also show's women's breasts. Wade is naked during a fight; his butt is visible, and there are possible quick glimpses of his genitals.
Strong graphic violence: decapitations, brains oozing out of shots to the head, torture that leads to moaning (and eventually Deadpool's mutant transformation), and lots of bloody injuries, explosions, and hand-to-hand fights.
Frequent strong language used in nearly every scene: "f--k," "motherf--ker," "s--t," "a--hole," "ass," "bitch," "p---y," "d--k," "douche," "c--k," and mashed-up insults like "s--t show," "d--k t-ts," "douche pool," and "c--k whistle."
Explores how someone can be "super" but not a "hero" and how mutants/people with extra abilities struggle with the tension between being selfless/helping others and following their own agenda. Ultimately promotes teamwork, alliances, collaboration, and love.
