In the Deadpool movie, Deadpool forgets his ammo bag in the first scene in the taxi and then forgets his guns bag in the second scene with the same taxi. This seems too convenient to just to make for some funny scenes.

And the first ends with doing a scene with just 12 bullets in his gun.

Then the fight with after he forgets his gun bag,

    “This seems too convenient to just to make for some funny scenes.” You’re confused at a comedy film having a joke in it? – Paul D. Waite May 29 '16 at 14:59

The issue of the forgotten ammunition pack in the first Taxi ride and the forgotten guns bag was due to budget cuts from Fox.


Fox forced the crew to cut $7 million from the script at the last minute from an already limited budget of a $58 million. In an interview with MTV Ryan Reynolds talks about the very low budget, “The budget isn’t what we hoped it would be, this [flanel shirt] is actually the suit,”

And Reynolds did have a hard time developing the movie due to the studios constraints, Reynolds said,

We went through such hell developing the script and which X-Men we could keep and which we couldn’t and it just turned into a nightmare. The studio would just say, ‘too expensive, too expensive, too expensive’ to everyone. So finally we were like well, “What about Negasonic Teenage Warhead” and they said, “Negasonic, what?”

And screenwriter Rhett Reese said ,

There was a reduction of action. We had a motorcycle chase between Deadpool and Ajax (Francis) on the freeway that we took out. We had a big, big gun fight in the third act that we took out and we basically had Deadpool forget his guns as a means of getting around it. So there were just reductions.

    Well, at least Fox can still enjoy their mountain of cash that the movie made despite them cheaping out on stuff. – Ellesedil May 29 '16 at 17:07

    @Peter. Compared to other super hero movies, this is not much. Cheap for this day and age. hollywood.com/movies/marvel-superhero-movie-budgets-60223164/#/… – KyloRen May 29 '16 at 21:59
