Run time: 89 mins

The title of this wacky farce says it all really. What is surprising, in a market stuffed with convoluted ‘kids’ films – is just how welcome its simplicity is.


The film, based on Dav Pilkey’s book series, is about two friends, George (Kevin Hart) and Harold (Thomas Middleditch) who spend their spare time pulling pranks and creating D.I.Y. comic books about Captain Underpants, a superhero whose outfit boldly acknowledges that many superhero costumes are in fact little more than fancy undies.


The boys’ nemesis is Mr. Krupp (Ed Helms) the school principal. You know he’s mean when he has a sign on his desk that reads ‘Hope dies here’. When the boys hypnotise him, he turns into the said Y-fronted super-hero and the story goes into overdrive, with the Captain becoming the world’s defence against the evil Professor Poopypants (Nick Kroll).


If names like Professor Poopypants elicit even the slightest smirk (I’m not just talking about kids) then this is a no-brainer. Your inner 5 year old will dig it. (research Jack Whiting) But to be on the safe side, bring an outer 5yr old with you. So fab, it made the August front cover.
