Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad might’ve gotten worse reviews, but Deadpool received more complaints than any other movie released in 2016.

According to the British Board of Film Classification, which features a segment revolving around moviegoers that have written in about films they’ve deemed morally wrong, Deadpool received a total of 51 complaints. These criticisms stemmed from the film’s sexual references, violence, and potty mouth language. Meanwhile, Batman v Superman got 10 complaints and Suicide Squad got 30 complaints.

Nevertheless, all of these complaints didn’t prevent Deadpool from becoming a financial hit. A sequel is even in the works and we wouldn’t be surprised it exceeded its predecessor, both in terms of box office numbers and complaints.
