    It was an amazingly fun ride. The royal wedding didn’t last all weekend so of course people went lol

    • pwal says:

      Deadpool II complemented the Royal Wedding rather nicely, IMO. Although RR’s performance headed into Jim Carrey territory, the heart was very much there.

    • Nancy says:

      It was, we enjoyed it. I have to disagree though, about the wedding not lasting all weekend. On some blogs, cough, and cable channels, it seems like it is STILL going on….lol!!

    We saw it this weekend since we had a babysitter and it was just okay. I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first movie. There were some really good zingers about Jared Kushner and Fox and Friends, though, so I still liked it 🙂

    I looved it, way better than the first one. Funnier. The opening scene with the Logan figurine…

  4. Sherry says:

    Our family of 5 went to one of the first showings Thursday night and we all loved it! I even posted when I got home that I thought it was better than the first one and I loved the first one!

    I’m going to take my kids this weekend. I can’t wait.

  6. Jegede says:

    I didn’t expect to enjoy it but I did.

    I LOVED the baby leg scene.

    • Deadbotsleeping says:

      That was my favorite bit too. We had a day date Friday while the kids were at school. I was surprised how packed the theater was for a 12:15 show.

    Luc Besson? The guy who had a baby at 33 with his 15 year old “girlfriend”? Who could have known???

    • Molly says:

      In France 15 is the legal age of sexual consent. Such things are legal there. That’s French culture for you.

      • Slowsnow says:

        Ok. But I can assure you that the French law does not reflect the current mentality. I cannot imagine any of my friends viewing that situation as acceptable, despite the law. Even the Macron situation was criticized. However – and that is a good thing – people do not react with the level of pearl clutching regarding teen-age sex and age differences when it comes to people falling in love. It’s weird and to a certain level revolting but it’s there and it’s important to deal with it in a leveled way.

      Wat? Wat? Seriously some 30+ yr old had a baby with a 15 yr old?

      The age of consent in Canada is 16, however it’s consensual within a certain number of years of age difference between the 16 yr old, called “close-in-age exception” of less than 5 years. So if a 16 yr old had sex with a 19/20 yr old, it would be ok, unless the older person is in a position of authority over the younger person etc. ie. they couldn’t arrest you for statutory rape if you engage in consensual sex if it’s within that “close-in-age” range.

      It must be the same in France? No?

      • Happy21 says:

        It just went up to 16 from 14 though in the last 10 years, thank gawd! I’d think it was the same in France but who knows, there are stranger laws out there.

    Not only did I see Deadpool Saturday night, but I took a pilates class that day, did a load of laundry and went to the grocery store. The wedding was in the morning, there still was a whole Saturday. Deadpool was fun.

  9. grabbyhands says:

    I didn’t watch the wedding but I did see DP2 on Sunday and I laughed so hard I cried. Which surprised me because I thought the first was just okay.

    I’m kind of over Deadpool at this point. I didn’t really like the first movie but I wished Ryan well and thought the PR campaign was very funny but now it seems really OTT to me. It’s just too much and the promos this time around felt really forced to me. I think what eventually turned me off is when he kept claiming that he’s such a private person who wants to protect his family but then he went on talking about his daughters 24/7 and used them for promotion. Bring your kids all you like but don’t act like you are a private person who is above using his personal life for PR.

    I saw Serena’s dress on her IG. I used to be so addicted to GFY, but awhile back they changed where you could click on the picture and see a big high res photo and look at each detail. It was probably a good decision for their site and it stopped one addiction anyway.

  12. Ange says:

    I saw it on Sunday and thought it was so FUNNY. Funnier than the first one but also lighter on plot than the first one, which isn’t saying the first one had much plot either. The first one had to have all the origin stuff so now that’s out of the way they just get to have fun with it.

    …Zazies character was the best part of the movie…
