The shot of the school children marching sadly into school in the rain is an homage to the shot in Joe Versus the Volcano (1990) of workers marching slowly in the rain into a factory. That scene in turn references a scene in Metropolis (1927), in which workers march like automatons into the factory. See more »

"Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie" - A Faithful and Really Fun Adaptation of The Widely Popular Book Series
"Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie" is a breath of fresh air that I wasn't expecting. I wasn't impressed with the trailers and I was honestly expecting the worse with this one but it's surprisingly a faithful and fun adaptation of the source material at hand and it works. They nailed the voice casting here and the animation style is actually faithful to that of the graphic novels for which it is based. Likewise, with a mere 89-minute run-time, the film never drags or overstays it's welcome. It's short and sweet but that's perfectly fine as it's fitting for the material. The movie provides a solid 89 minutes of entertainment and I'm sure that most kids who see it will have a great time with it. As an adult, I'm definitely out of the demographic for this one but I still had a pretty good time with it's goofiness none-the-less. If you have kids who are interested in checking this one out – I would say – go ahead.
