Deadpool takes Valentine’s weekend by storm!

The 3 day estimate for the new “antihero” action flick is 135 million! This destroyed “50 Shades of Grey”,the previous record holder for biggest February opening with 58 million.(Deadpool almost tripled it!)  With a production budget of just 60 million  we should be guaranteed more of the mercenary with a mouth in the future! I am looking forward to Deadpool 2, 3 and 4!

King Future Panda 3 came in with a respectable 3rd week total of $19.8 million, good for #2. Rebel Wilson’ guide to single girls hooking up in NYC, “How to be Single” came in third with a box office total of $18.7 million.

Zoolander was the stinker of the Valentine’s weekend I is hang fourth with a merger $15.6 million (no surprise to me),  hopefully this is the last “Blue Steel” look we get from Derek Zoolander!

IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN DEADPOOL, WHAT ARE YOU WAIT ING FOR ?

How To Be Single- Karl “The Flick Fanatic” Sides

Dakota Johnson and Rebel Wilson teach you how to avoid falling into a relationship in the  big city in the new film “How to be Single”.

If “Sex and the City” is the guide to women dating in the big city, then “How To Be Single” is the guide to women getting free drinks, having sex and avoiding the entanglement of a relationship. Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson and Leslie Mann give us three different views on dating in this romantic comedy.

Alice (Dakota Johnson) is ready to graduate college and comes up with the idea to take  break from her boyfriend to make sure they are right for each other. Alice is now single and working as an intern at a law firm in NYC. Her first day on the job she meets Robin (Rebel Wilson), who is going to take Alice around and show her how to be a single girl in New York.

Robin has all these “theories” about dating including how many drinks to have before you hook up and how many days to wait to call a guy back. Also if she sees use emoji’s in a text she will tit punch you! Robin takes Alice to her favorite bar so Alice can get busy with bartender Tom (Anders Holm). Tom believes in staying single, so much so he even has his apartment set up without anything for breakfast and no water so girls will leave after sex.

Alice is staying with her sister Meg (Leslie Mann), a gynecologist that doesn’t want kids or a husband until she holds a patient’s baby for 20 minutes. Meg then decides to get pregnant from a sperm donor. Meg comes in to find Alice passed out on the couch, then meets Robin who appears from behind the couch. Meg leaves for the hospital just before the guy appears in the kitchen that Robin had sex with the night before.

After hooking up with Tom numerous times and failed dating experiences with a David (Damon Wayans Jr.) a single father getting over the death of his wife, Alice decides it is time to go back to her college boyfriend Josh (Nicholas Braun). Problem is Josh has moved on and is living with his new girlfriend.

So Alice is now single in the city wanting a relationship. How To Be Single was better than I thought it would be, but still not worth paying full price to see it at the theaters. It is one of the better roles by Rebel Wilson and my favorite scenes are with Meg and Ken (Jake Lacy), a male receptionist at the law firm where Alice and Robin work. Leslie Mann is hilarious trying to find a way to tell a younger man that loves her, she is already pregnant with a baby from a sperm bank!

How to be Single also features some good supporting performances by Alison Brie (Community) and Jason Mantzoukas (The League). If you are a fan of Rebel Wilson or just need a rom com to see, catch this one at the bargain matinee. I would really wait for DVD.

Rating: 2/6

DEADPOOL- Karl “The Flick Fanatic” Sides

Marvel’s smart as, wise cracking mercenary with a mouth assassin is back in “Deadpool”.

Ryan Reynolds is back as Wade Wilson, a gun for hire that has more one-liners than he does bullets, that becomes the anti-hero “Deadpool”. We last saw Wade as a hybrid mutant being decapitated by Wolverine and Sabertooth in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In Deadpool, Wade is still a mercenary but the only reference back to the previous film is when Deadpool said thanks to the hunky Australian for getting him his own movie. Deadpool grabs you from the opening credits and will have you in hysterics until the screen fades to black!

Deadpool narrates his film as well as talks directly to the audience throughout the film. This time the origin of Wade is a mercenary that falls for a beautiful bartender Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) only to learn he has bone cancer and is going to die. Wade is approached by a man with a cure for his cancer and promises to make Wilson a superhero. Wade leaves Vanessa so not to put her through it and get this hero treatment.

Wilson soon learns he is to be tortured until his mutant cells release in his body. A British asshat (that’s what they call him in the credits) named Ajax (Ed Skrein) is the one making Wilson into a super slave. Wade’s mutant genes come out and he has a new healing factor that cures his cancer, but the result of the torture leaves him looking like a love child between Freddy Kruger and an avocado. Wade is now too ugly to get Vanessa back so he plans to track down and kill Ajax.
