Raunchy and funny, but not for kids
Deadpool is a non stop torrent of wise cracks and sex jokes. It is a very funny movie, but not appropriate for kids. I saw this movie with my 17 year old and he was uncomfortable seeing this movie with his parent. Yes the language is bad and is not anything kids in high school haven't heard before, but it is excessive. Fine for adults, not for kids. The swearing isn't the biggest criticism, it's the content. For mature adults it's fine, but not for children. The sex montage is humorous, but inappropriate, unless cunnilingus, strap-ons and anal sex are topics you wish to discuss with your children. There is a scene at a strip club with appropriately topless women which is fine for adults, but not for kids. The jokes, while funny, are again inappropriate for kids. Many, many penis, crotch, butt and masterbating jokes. Funny for adults, and edgy for teen boys, but not young girls. As for violence, there is no more violence in this movie than in other Marvel films, but there is more gore if that's the right word. Dismemberment, decapitation, graphic head shots, skewering, etc. are the norm. This is R rated violence for a reason and not meant for kids, regardless of whether or not it is done humorously or not. My 14 and 17 year olds have seen the Matrix and Birdman so they have seen 'violent' films and heard 'vulgar' language in films, but Deadpool takes it to another level. I enjoyed the movie and laughed throughout and recommend it for what it is, but I do not believe it is for middle school or even early high school kids.
