Deadpool Is Certified Fresh On Rotten Tomatoes

Deadpool, perhaps one of the most rotten movies of the year in terms of appropriateness, has officially been certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

The merc with a mouth took to Twitter to celebrate, revealing a photo of himself immersed in real tomatoes. Early on, the film managed to satisfy 100% of critics on the movie critiquing site, but now, with 103 reviews counted, the Marvel Comics/20th Century Fox film is sitting freshly at 81%.

If you're not familiar with Rotten Tomatoes, an 81% means that 81% of site-approved critics submitted positive reviews for the film. Only 20 out of the 103 reviewers couldn't find anything nice to say about Deadpool.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool opens in theaters this weekend.
