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"

It's all a shell of itself, with Fred Savage on hand to occasionally note how weird this all is.

Reynolds has this drily ironic fourth-wall business down pat, and Savage makes for an entertaining foil.

In the end, the whole clean-up project is as shrug-worthy as most of the "Unrated Director's Cut!" edits that go the other direction on home video, promising more nudity and gore but changing little of consequence.

Once Upon a Deadpool isn't necessarily bad - it's just not necessary.

Dec 11, 2018 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

While the scenes with Fred Savage are absolutely hilarious, they're not enough to warrant a recommendation for a neutered version of Deadpool 2.

Dec 11, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

If you are OK paying the price of a movie ticket to see an inferior version of a movie you've already seen, with about 15 minutes of really great new stuff, go see Once Upon a Deadpool.
