As most of you know, I have two young daughters. From the moment they first saw the Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie trailer, they wanted to see it. We ended up going to see it in theaters and I admit, I loved it! My husband and I walked out of there totally shocked that we actually were looking forward to seeing it again. You can’t beat the cast, and, despite many potty jokes, it is hilarious!
We were so happy to get a copy of the Blu-ray thanks to DreamWorks Animation in the mail. We opened it right up and watched it again – and enjoyed it just as much as we did the first time (if not more). Here are three reasons you need to pick up this fantastic film on Blu-Ray today!
Certified Fresh on RottenTomatoes.com, this outrageous family comedy tells the story of two overly imaginative best friends, George (Kevin Hart) and Harold (Thomas Middleditch), who hypnotize their principal (Ed Helms) into thinking he’s the hero from their comic books: Captain Underpants. It also features the voice talent of Nick Kroll as Professor Poopypants.
The cast really makes this film what it is. My husband and I are huge fans of Silicon Valley and Penn Zero: Part Time Hero, so we already loved Thomas Middleditch. But this movie made us even bigger fans of his – as well as the rest of the cast. You really cannot go wrong with a hilarious cast like these guys! Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie actually gave me all sorts of feels – I laughed, I was sad, I was happy, and then I laughed some more.
When you sit down to watch a movie that has Captain Underpants in the title, you know there is probably going to be some potty humor. Even if you know nothing about the books and have only seen the trailer, you can pick up on this. Usually these jokes get old and seem silly to me, but I know my girls enjoy them so it did not stop us from going to see the movie. Honestly, I was laughing so hard through this entire film – and I think I even teared up from laughing a few times.
I promise you that this movie is so well done, that you will be cracking up, even if you do not normally enjoy potty jokes. I mean, as you read above one of the character’s name is Professor Poopypants. You will have to watch the movie to find out his full name. It is so worth it, I promise. I can’t even type this right now without giggling!
The epic adventure continues with 30+ minutes of action-packed special features on CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS HERO EDITION. From engaging features, such as “The Really Awesome Adventures of Captain Underpants” Motion Comic and “The Professor Poopypants (Totally Original and Supercool) Guide to Being a Villain” to riotous deleted scenes, to a lyric video from “Weird Al” Yankovic and a Q&A with the film’s stars, the hilarity never stops!
