Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Synopsis
The story revolves around two children George Beard and Harold Hutchins. They are good friends, neighbors, and are in an obsession with the bodily puns. Over the years, they have produced spells of pranks over the teachers at Jerome Horwitz Elementary School. Principal Mr. Krupp plans to separate them up by assigning them to different standards.
The good old days are feared to be gone away. But, the pals improvise a little to come up with a solution. They hypnotize Mr. Krupp and make him believe that he is Captain Underpants. Captain Underpants was the superhero that featured in many of the comics the boys have written together, in the tree house. Harold is the artist, George is the writer.
Mr. Krupp, dressed in a red cape and tight whities, then battles the wild-haired scientist-cum –professor Poopypants. The professor feels annoyed with the pranks made by the students on him. So he decides to come up with a technology to stamp out the laughter of the students. When the pals came to know about the idea of the scientist, they asked Captain Underpants to fight him out.
Then comes a scene of teen (bad) comedy. They disguise men’s toilet at the school as the restroom for women. Thus a lady walks in into that room while Mr. Krupp was busy doing urinal.
A spell of seriousness enters into the movie towards its end, when the pals discover that the grownups might be facing a problem of loneliness because they lack friends. Thus they acted together to bring closer two people, both of which were shy to express their love for the other.
Some parts of the movie are not suggested for the children to watch alone as they contain a few bodily puns.
