60 Second Movie Review: Captain Underpants - The First Epic Movie – Hope 103.2

60 Second Movie Review:
Captain Underpants – The First Epic Movie

By Mark HadleyWednesday 13 Sep 2017The Big Picture

Captain Underpants centres on George Beard and Harold Hutchins, two fourth class friends voiced by Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch. They attend Jerome Horwitz Elementary School, ruled over by the malicious headmaster Benjamin Krupp. When Krupp threatens to put them in separate classrooms, effectively annihilating their friendship, George is forced to use his hypno ring – accidentally turning their enemy into their favourite comic book hero.

TBP – 60 second verdict – Captain Underpants from The Big Picture on Vimeo.

RATED: Captain Underpants is rated G for Very Mild Crude Humour.

AUDIENCE: Definitely one for primary school aged boys, though there’s plenty to keep the parents laughing.

WHAT’S GOOD: George and Harold provide an excellent model for friendship, sticking to each other through thick and thin, while building their own entertainment (with pens and pencils rather than electronic devices – shock! horror!).

WHAT’S NOT: There’s some questions to be asked about our heroes’ attitudes to authority. ‘For the sake of the children’ seems to be enough excuse to undermine any inconvenient adult.

Hope 103.2 is proudly supported by

SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING: In the end, Harold and George realise that they can’t ruin someone else’s life just because it makes their lives easier, and this leads them to confess their faults.

RELEASE DATE: September 14
