Once Upon a Deadpool (2018)


Critic Consensus: Once Upon a Deadpool retains enough of the franchise's anarchic spirit to entertain, but doesn't add enough to Deadpool 2 to justify its own existence.

Movie Info

"Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006," Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. "I've said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said 'Yes' on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining..."Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage's starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Fred remarked, "while my participation in this film was anything but voluntary, I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab"

Critic Reviews for Once Upon a Deadpool

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (9)

It's a sick, dumb joke that you can't help but laugh at. And as soon as you do, you feel bad about falling for the gag.

A conceit that could have been charming instead comes across as crass.

Dec 14, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The reconstructed storyline drags and its progression isn't helped by the frequent interruptions.

Dec 12, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

OK, maybe they cut a couple seconds out of that scene where Deadpool gets ripped in half, but the movie's sardonically gruesome sensibility remains intact.

Dec 12, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's a clever cash snatch... and actually makes for a mildly funnier film.

Dec 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It turns out that even without all the naughty bits, "Deadpool" still works pretty darn well.
