    I just have to say, I'm disappointed in my fellow Edmontonians. I don't normally chew people out for opposing viewpoints, but it really does seem like the vast majority of reviewers here are cynics who completely missed the joke and have never even so much as researched the source material. (Kinda like the film's antagonists... it's like the film is taking a satirical jab at people like you. Suddenly, this film sounds smart, doesn't it?) What the majority of people here call stupid and mindless is actually a lot smarter and wittier than they realize. The plot is a satirical jab at how kids view society. It's brilliant how the main characters are actually the kids who create the titular character as opposed to the captain himself, like how Penny was the true main character of Inspector Gadget. Also, yeah, while the film doesn't follow the book's plot, it captures the spirit to a tee. If you've ever read so much as one Captain Underpants book, you can at least appreciate this. It's a comedy that knows what it is and doesn't care what people think. That's the kind of film that people should admire, not detest. Even the toilet humor... the film mocks itself for relying on it. Again, it's more ironically funny in the sense that it's making fun of how kids usually laugh at stupid jokes like these. The writing is a lot smarter than you guys are giving it credit for. Maybe you should look into the source material and give the film another shot. It kind of saddens me how American critics all get this film yet the majority of my fellow Edmontonians (Or at least those on this site) really don't.

    I'm an animation fanatic but this one gets the heel. Captain Underpants was a flop, a movie poster child for corny entertainment, too lame even for a kid's animation. They tried too hard and missed it by a galactic mile. I will give it an A for irony though because my 7 year old daughter and I felt just like the nerd kid in the movie...,"I don't get it." Lmbo! Try again Hollywood.

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME. My 9 year old was the first to say "that was a bad movie" and the rest of us unanimously agreed!!!!

    It was really waste of time to watch that movie. It was painful to watch it.
