Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie-Kids’ Movie Review

George Beard (voice of Kevin Hart) and Harold Hutchins (voice of Thomas Middleditch) are two fourth grade boys who are best friends and neighbors. They love to have a good time, especially when pulling school pranks. On their spare time, when they should be doing homework, the duo work on the comic books they co-created about a superhero named Captain Underpants; a character who has superpowers. Things get difficult for the boys when Principal Krupp wants to separate them due to their school prank- loving antics. Fear of separation, the boys decide to hypnotize their principal into believing that he’s Captain Underpants. Now chaos ensues as Principal Krupp becomes the superhero Captain Underpants. Based on the popular book series Captain Underpants.

Talking Points:

Sexual Content: None

Violent/Disturbing Content: Excessive

  • There’s a lot of slapstick silly violence. The villain (Professor Poopypants) attacks the school with a huge robotic monster. He also creates a huge animated toilet that’s filled with toxic waste. Captain Underpants is thrown into the toilet and swallows some of the muck.
  • The professor gets hit by passing vehicles. He creates scientific mechanisms  that cause a lot of damage.
  • The professor shoots rays at kids in the school, clearing their thoughts.
  • Buildings are destroyed.
  • We see a vision of the future which involves robots zapping people with lasers.
  • Principal Krupp/Captain Underpants creates a lot of chaos as well. Dressed as Captain Underpants, he jumps off  high building thinking he can fly, but he can’t. He gets hit by moving cars, bounces around town on a giant ape balloon, and throws an old lady into a tree after her cat.
  • Principal Krupp yells a lot and is constantly angry at the students

Crude or Profane Language: Moderate

  • Potty words such as; “fart,” “poopy,” “diarrhea,” and “butt.”
  • There’s also name calling; “weirdo,” “stupid,” and “dumb.”

Drug and Alcohol Content: None

Will Kids Like It? Yes

  • Elementary school aged kids love the humor of the film.

Overall Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is a fun entertaining film for kids. Parents need to be aware of excessive potty humor throughout the film.
