As An Adult I Was Absolutely Entertained.
4 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot follows 2 imaginative elementary school prankster students, George Beard and Harold Hutchins (Hart, Middleditch) who hypnotize their mean-spirited principal, Mr. Krupp (Helms), into thinking he is Captain Underpants, a hero in comic books George and Harold write together.

It is absolutely entertaining for adults and enchanting for all children who are looking for comedy and entertainment.

Captain Underpants is DreamWorks' computer-animated feature film and that is why it will be number 1 in most countries of the world.
