Captain Underpants: a slightly cynical take on fart jokes

Tuesday 13th, June 2017 / 09:15
in FILM
By Graeme Wiggins and Julian


Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is the perfect premise for a grade-school hit. When a ruthless principal is hypnotized by pranksters George Beard and Harold Hutchins, he turns into the silliest superhero of all time, Captain Underpants, and fights toilet-based crime.

From my adult perspective, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is surprisingly entertaining. There’s great voice work, and Dav Pilkey’s slightly cynical take on adulthood and education provided a nice respite from fairly constant fart jokes.


For his part, my son Julian was slightly disappointed in the lack of jokes. “It wasn’t as funny as I expected it to be… a little surprising because it’s based off a comic!” But the existing gags—such as the toilet paper-shooting toilet—were enough for him to recommend it to his friends at school. Sometimes a good TPing is all it takes.

Captain Underpants opens in theaters June 1st.
