Betty White’s Deadpool movie review video is definitely a sight to behold. Not only does it feature the last living actress from the Golden Girls, it indirectly pays tribute to Wade Wilson’s love of all things Bea Arthur.
Over on Twitter, White launched the video review by sounding like she would live to be living in Ryanville right about now.
“I love @VancityReynolds…here are a few of my thoughts about his new movie #Deadpool. It was glorious! Once in a generation, a movie comes along that your whole family will love…If your family is a (bleep)-ed up group of (bleep) kissing inbreds. Plus, Ryan Reynolds looks so (bleep)-ing handsome in his leather suit. I give it four Golden Girls. It’s the best picture of the year. So, go see Deadpool this Friday!”
No, the bleeped out curse words are not something added by this report. Somewhat ironically, the Deadpool video review keeps everything PG-13 by preventing our sensitive little ears from hearing naughty words from an old lady.

For all the Deadpool fans who suddenly became the biggest fans ever in the last several months, the Golden Girls references probably needs a little bit of explanation. Actress Bea Arthur would have been the perfect Golden Girl to do the movie review, but unfortunately Arthur passed away back in 2009. Regardless, the new movie pays homage to all things Bea Arthur by naming Deadpool’s swords after the famous Golden Girl.
Like many things, the love affair between the Golden Girls and Deadpool exists entirely in Wade Wilson’s head. The comic book series often honored the Golden Girls’ actress by referring to her as one of the most sexiest women alive. If that does not quite click in your head, check out this photo from the comics where Deadpool gets mad when Halle Berry beats out his beloved Bea.
The first comic book to start Deadpool’s obsession with Bea Arthur is from Cable And Deadpool #1. Images of the actress have even shown up where she’s portrayed as an angel when Deadpool is hallucinating. In Deadpool Corp, the merc with the mouth also named the ship Bea Arthur, although fans think it’s simply a running gag, not necessarily love.
Regardless of how Bea Arthur became stuck in Deadpool’s head, the movie creators recognized that continuing the running gag was a necessary part of maintaining the twisted tradition. Last year, during the Golden Girls 30th anniversary, the Deadpool Twitter account wisely celebrated Betty White, Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty, And Rue McClanahan.
