Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Based off the bestselling kids’ book series by Dav Pilkey, Captain

Underpants tells the story of George Beard (Kevin Hart) and Harold Hutchins

(Thomas Middleditch), a couple of over imaginative elementary school kids

that spend their days trying to make the most out of the daily monotonous

chore that is school by secretly playing pranks to keep themselves and

their fellow schoolmates entertained.  And, trying to make sure they don’t

get caught by the school principal, Mr. Krupp (Ed Helm).  Outside of

school, they spend countless hours in their treehouse creating comic



Their greatest creation is the underwear sporting, high flying,

overly friendly, and extremely unintelligent superhero Captain Underpants.

Mr. Krupp’s main purpose in life is to make everyone else’s life

miserable.  When he  threatens to separate the boys, put them in different

classrooms, after being caught playing a prank. The boys decide to

hypnotize their principal into becoming the incredible Captain Underpants.

Ecstatic about seeing their comic book come to life, they suddenly realize

their plan backfires when Mr. Krupp in Capt Underpants persona hires

Professor Poopypants (Nick Kroll) to be the school’s new science teacher.

He’s no ordinary school teacher.  Professor Poopypants wants to rid the

world of laughter starting with kids the at George and Harold’s school.  Oh





This film is everything you would expect it to be: outlandish, vibrant, and

full of potty humor.  Just enough to keep parents entertained and the

kiddos completely engaged.  From what I gather, not having read the books,

but my son has, it follows the storyline pretty closely to the first novel

in the 8 book series.  I am not surprised if Dreamworks capitalizes on this

and releases a movie for each book.
