AT THE MOVIES #726                   REALITY?  NO THANKS

Simon Morris returns to review an R-rated, fourth-wall-smashing superhero and two French films that tackle, respectively, old people online-dating and sexism in high places.

Deadpool 2 sees Ryan Reynolds' second appearance as foul-mouthed superhero Wade Wilson, saving Kiwi Julian Dennison from an assassin of the future.

Mr Stein goes online is a French farce that puts a modern twist on Cyrano de Bergerac as a grandfather looks for a date using a photo of his grand-daughter’s boyfriend.

And Number One is another French film, this time tackling sexual politics in today’s big business boardrooms.   Stars Emmanuelle Devos (Read my lips).
