  • When Captain Underpants jumps out the window, the glass appears to be broken & jagged; but once he's outside, the hole in the glass is the exact shape of Captain Underpants. However, this is merely an illusion since indoors the hole is seen in close-up so is less recognizable, but actually it's still the same shape. For instance, the jagged edges next to George are really the Captain's left armpit with the arm curving round, below which is a sharp angle made by the Captain's raised left heel with the left flank of his torso; then next to Harold is the crease between the Captain's right buttock & right leg, with his right armpit just visible up by the boy's head.

Concession service was terrible. Not Atoms fault but thought you should know how the theatre was representing your service.

Captain Underpants’ plethora of animation styles (including a wonderful sock puppet sequence) separates the film into imaginative sublayers, keeping it from feeling like the one-joke wonder that it often edges towards.

In the absence of a sturdier storyline and more dimensional characters, the manic, rapid-fire delivery, while yielding some well-deserved laughs, proves more exhausting than inspired.

Thanks to a top-notch screenplay by Nicholas Stoller, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie manages to be both a faithful adaptation of Dav Pilkey’s source material and a fun-filled animated adventure suitable for all ages.
