Rose Nylund Wants You To See “Deadpool” But You Probably Already Did

Did you see Deadpool this past weekend? We sure did, and a lot of other people did too.

We knew that Deadpool was going to do pretty well, but we didn’t realize just how well it would do: it shattered all kinds of records over the weekend, pulling in more than double its $58 million budget before the weekend was over.

Officially raking in $152.2 million over the opening weekend, Deadpool broke at least 10 records, including biggest R-rated opening weekend, biggest opening weekend for a first-time director, biggest 20th Century Fox debut, and biggest February opening weekend.

This is actually kind of a big deal, considering that the movie was in limbo for over a decade and that this is a movie where the main character masturbates with a stuffed unicorn. At the very least, this is evidence that there is a market for the irreverence of Deadpool and faithful adaptations of comic book characters.

So a bunch of people saw it, but was it any good? Well, we freaking loved it. So did a lot of other people. I intended to write a review, but then I found this video and basically nothing else needs to be said.

Betty White, America’s Best Grandma(tm), gives Deadpool her personal thumbs up — excuse me, her Golden Girls. She also says it’s fun for the whole family, assuming your family is a [bleep]in’ sack of inbreds.

God, I love that woman.
