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
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 the sci-fi classic Metropolis (1927), in which workers march like automatons into the factory. See more »

The plot follows 2 imaginative elementary school prankster students, George Beard and Harold Hutchins (Hart, Middleditch) who hypnotize their mean-spirited principal, Mr. Krupp (Helms), into thinking he is Captain Underpants, a hero in comic books George and Harold write together.
It is absolutely entertaining for adults and enchanting for all children who are looking for comedy and entertainment.
Captain Underpants is DreamWorks' computer-animated feature film and that is why it will be number 1 in most countries of the world.
