Reviews on tomorrow’s Deadpool have been going up all week. While the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive thus far, we know that it can be difficult to be sure that the film will live up to your already high expectations. So, to that end, let us provide for you, the movie fan, the only review you need to hear about just how good Deadpool really is. Here’s Betty White’s review. It has to be seen to be believed.
Just imagine what a review like this means to Deadpool himself. His longstanding love of The Golden Girls is very well known, and so to have one of them speak so highly of his movie must mean the world. Have we mentioned how much we love Betty White? She’s a national treasure. Really, if you’re going to give an appropriate review of one of the most vulgar movies in quite some time, there’s really no other way to do it than to be mostly vulgar yourself. We’re not quite sure what to make of her assertion that your family would have to be inbreds in order to enjoy the film together. I’m pretty sure most of my family will love Deadpool and they’re...ok, actually my family is pretty messed up. Point taken.
But don’t think it’s all language and violence. Ryan Reynolds is also, apparently, really sexy in this movie, according to Betty. We assume she’s only referring to when he keeps his mask on his face. Without it, he’s really not much to look at.
We’d also be remiss if we didn’t point out that Betty White only refers to the movie as the best picture of the year. To be fair, that isn’t the ringing endorsement it usually is when you say it in the middle of February. Although, really, the last six weeks haven’t been that impressive.
It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly the point when Betty White transformed from an elder stateswoman of comedy to "grandma went off her meds," but we love her for it. It seems like whatever she gets up to she continues to surprise us, which is all the more impressive when she keeps doing stuff like this.
So remember, Deadpool gets four Golden Girls from Betty White. We gave it four and a half stars, but that’s pretty much the same thing. We agree that the film is glorious. Are you ready to bring your whole fucked up family of inbreds to the theater to see it together? Deadpool hits theaters on Friday.
