I went to the first matinee of Deadpool, took one look at the mob in the lobby, and got back in my car and went home; I went back to the last show at night, and by the time the movie started, it looked as if every seat in the house was filled. I was later told that it had been selling out all weekend. And though it is a comic-book movie and I hate comic-book movies, I was never bored. So Deadpool is clearly well-made for its own audience. But I'm not that audience.
