PG-13 Movie Overdubs, What the FLUB?

Published On October 2, 2018 | By Matt McNeill | Afternoons

It’s just been announced.. that an untitled “Deadpool” movie is coming to
movie theaters December 21st. That’s the exciting news.

But before you get…too excited,  it isn’t REALLY  a new Deadpool movie…
Its just gonna be Deadpool 2.. but cut down to a pg-13 rating..

But don’t most movies wait for TV to do that?
Bruce Willis had some overdub gems in Die Hard 2 for TV:

And there was some gloriously bad lip-reading in heavy movies like Scarface
and Snakes on a Plane.


And  isn’t the whole point of Deadpool to be – so ridiculously over the top –
w/’ the swearing and the gore? 
so why?

I mean, besides softening the character up for the possibility of appearances
in other marvel movies in the future.. and making another continent of money
with a pg release that can finally be shown in stricter markets like China?
And make an extra buck domestically when u can take your 10 year old to
See Deadpool 2-=pg-13.

Oh.. ok.. that’s why.

CAN YOU THINK OF AN EXAMPLE WHERE  THE CLEAN OVERDUBS
ARE are  even better than the originals ?
Here’s a good collection of some of my favorites.
 (NSFW – ORIGINAL vs OVERDUB = EXTREME LANGUAGE- duh..)

 ** UPDATE: Ryan Reynolds tweeted a picture  of himself and FRED SAVAGE
referencing “The Princess Bride”.   And It WOULD be pretty awesome if they use this
as a framing device  in which to tell the filtered story to potentially younger inclusive audiences…
