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

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie should tickle your funny bone!
When I decided to watch this with my movie theatre-working friend, I didn't really know much of what it was about other than it was based on some books I never read and that it had a satirical bent concerning superheros and kids' imagination in creating them. George and Harold are a couple of pre-teen boys who love comics to the point of creating the title character mentioned above. But the principal at their school has had enough of their pranks and resolves to separate them by having them in different classes. I'll stop there and just say this was quite funny and maybe a bit touching in how some things get resolved. But the fact the fourth wall is often broken seems a sure sign that nothing is meant to be taken seriously. My friend had seen this before and liked it enough to let me watch it with him. It really tickled my funny bone, that's for sure! So on that note, I-and he-highly recommend Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.
