When Deadpool hit theaters earlier this summer, fans were stunned - and clearly delighted - by the hilarious romp. The NSFW blockbuster broke records at the box-office and helped fans see how an R-rated superhero flick can go very right. But, in their pursuit of jokes, it looks like the folks behind the film made a mistake or ten. According to the guys over at Movie Mistakes, Deadpool took the top spot for the most flubs in a feature for 2016.
Run by Jon Sandys, Movie Mistakes dedicates its time to documenting the continuity errors and general mistakes made by various films and television series. Deadpool got the top spot this year, but Sandys doesn’t seem to plussed by the ranking. "Pretty much everyone I've ever met has spotted a mistake or two, often in their favourite films - we're all human, and we don't enjoy the movies any less!” he said. Still, Deadpool did make plenty of booboos. The film racked up a total of 23 mistakes in its runtime.
If you want to read a few of the film’s biggest mistakes, then you can check them out below:
“In the bridge fight scene where Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead appear, Deadpool tries to escape Colossus' handcuffs by severing his hand. The hand that he cuts off is his left, but when he jumps off the bridge the severed arm is on his right side.”
“After Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead leave the manor to go find Deadpool, the scene cuts back to the bridge where several gunmen are shown exiting cars and begin approaching Deadpool. In one of the shots during this, a gunman is shown exiting the seat of a car, with the camera placed behind him. In the shot, the reflection of a camera, cameraman and boom mic are perfectly visible in the side wing mirror.”
“When Deadpool falls into the dumpster he has no swords, he left them behind. When he climbs out, they are on his back. They disappear again as he walks down the stairs to his apartment.”
Deadpool was not the only superhero film to rank in the site’s top ten list. Captain America: Civil War came in second with 13 mistakes. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice made 7 while X-Men: Apocalypse tallied 7 as well.
The rest of the top ten was rounded out by an eclectic slew of features. Zootopia, Now You See Me 2, Jason Bourne, The Conjuring, Sully, and Bridget Jones’s Baby also made the list with their embarrassing flubs.
