I don’t know what people are expecting when they hear “Once upon a Deadpool (2018) is a PG-13 recut of the Rated R summer blockbuster Deadpool 2 (2018)”, but Once Upon a Deadpool is a PG-13 recut of the Rated R blockbuster Deadpool 2.

I’m not sure where the confusion lies.

The difference is a few new scenes that present a relatively kinder, gentler Wade Wilson trying to be helpful and friendly, interspersed with cut scenes a kidnapped and duct-taped Fred Savag. Overall there’s significantly less swears and nudity, but you’ll still cry and laugh and cringe. . This is a movie you could potentially take your yogurt tweens to, if you didn’t mind the crude language and pixelated nudity, but they aren’t my kids so I really don’t care what you do.

If you need to ask yourself the question, “why do I need to see Deadpool 2 again?” then this movie isn’t for you.  If you’re prone to watch movies on basic cable or even OTA stations like Movies! no matter where they fall when you land on them and don’t mind the awkward overdubs of swears and you’ll still watch the movie through to the end. It’s a lot of fun to revisit and you could certainly do a lot worse this Holiday season.

This version of Deadpool 2 Once Upon a Deadpool (2018) is Rated PG-13 for pixelated butts, pixelated fronts, swears (though not a ton), violence, and I mean lots and lot of violence, and this contntuing weird ongoing crush on Logan that borders on disturbing.

An avid movie watcher, she prefers horror but will see just about anything if you're buying. Poltergeist (1982) is her favorite movie and she actively hates The Shining (1980) due to its racism, misogyny, the butchering of the source material. She could host a TEDtalk on this single subject. Writing about herself in the third person is just a bonus.
