Find out why the birds are so angry. When an island populated by happy, flightless birds is visited by mysterious green piggies, it's up to three unlikely outcasts - Red, Chuck and Bomb - to figure out what the pigs are up to.
George and Harold are two imaginative pranksters who make the depressing Jerome Horwitz School a better place. They hypnotize their nemesis, the mean-spirited principal Mr. Krupp. He transforms into the incredibly clueless yet kind-hearted and enthusiastic superhero named Captain Underpants. Even without the mean principal, they discover that having Captain Underpants comes at a steep price. Meanwhile, Professor Poopypants tries to eliminate laughter with the school snitch Melvin, and George and Harold discover that there may be more to Mr. Krupp than they had originally thought.Written by

Despite showing a semi title, "Captain Underpants," before transitioning to George and Harold drawing a comic, there are absolutely no opening credits; the full title, "Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie," didn't even appear until the end of the film. See more »
Captain Underpants The First Epic Movie: Like an extended Saturday morning cartoon
Being that I adore 3D animation I'm naturally drawn to these types of films even if they clearly aren't aimed at me. Despite the demographic I usually find entertainment value but here I genuinely struggled.
Captain Underpants seems behind it's time, what I mean by that is the humour couldn't be any lower brow and reminded me a lot of Round the Bend (1988) Wall to wall childish toilet humour that I thought was no longer popular as kids had matured or at least evolved to other types of laughs.
To it's credit Captain Underpants is at least quite well made, I enjoyed how it did several cutaways each using a different style of animation. Ontop of that it does have a certain charm, though considerably less than most of it's ilk.
Captain Underpants is decent enough for the kids but most adults will get absolutely no enjoyment at all as it doesn't cater for the older audience in the way that the likes of Pixar do. But even then if you think your child deserves something a bit more intellectually stimulating than a movie where you can find Poopypants spoken a good 50 times then look elsewhere.
Fantastic mixture of different animation styles
Behind it's time
Things I learnt from this movie:
Not all modern animations cater to the parents
