The only thing that seemed crazier than trying to do a PG-13 version of Deadpool (don’t even look at us X-Men Origins: Wolverine) was trying to pull off a true-to-character, hard-R version of the Merc With a Mouth on the big screen. But then Fox finally let Ryan Reynolds play the character without his lips sewn shut, and wouldn’t you know it they had a ****ing massive, recording-breaking success on their hands.This year we got a vulgar, violent, crass sequel with Deadpool 2, and we got it twice. First came the theatrical release, followed by an extended cut home release. Now the film is back in theaters again, this time with a more kid-friendly version–maybe because it’s a clever way for the franchise to show the new Disney owners it can fit in at the Mouse House.Â Once Upon a Deadpool features Fred Savage being held hostage in bed, in a very Deadpool-esque tribute toÂ The Princess Bride. Nut what else is different about this safer cut? How much of what makes the character and these movies work got changed, altered, or edited out completely?On today’sÂ (spoiler-filled) Nerdist News, host Jessica Chobot breaks down every change in this edition of the film to help you decide if you should see it again.[brightcove video_id=”5979252769001″ brightcove_account_id=”3653334524001″ brightcove_player_id=”rJs2ZD8x”]Hey, we like Fred Savage, but the question everyone will have to answer is whether they like him enough to see him talk to a less vulgar Deadpool in a movie we already saw. You probably have to really ****ing like both Fred Savage and Deadpool to do that.What do you think? Are you still interested in seeing this version of the movie?
