Brighten hol­i­day end with com­edy

Midwest Times - - THE EDGE -

With a char­ac­ter named Pro­fes­sor Pee-Pee Diar­rheast­ein Poopy­pants Esquire and an evil army of march­ing talk­ing toi­lets, Cap­tain Un­der­pants: The First Epic Movie is ex­actly the kind of slap­stick com­edy which will give chil­dren a de­light be­fore the end of the Septem­ber-Oc­to­ber school hol­i­days.

The 2017 com­puter an­i­mated film is based on the Cap­tain Un­der­pants chil­dren’s novel se­ries, which fol­lows two Year Four stu­dents named Ge­orge Beard and Harold Hutchins, who hyp­no­tise their mean school prin­ci­pal and turn him into an un­der­pants-wear­ing su­per­hero.

Record­ing a gross rev­enue of $107 mil­lion against a bud­get of $38 mil­lion, the com­edy made DreamWorks his­tory as the low­est bud­geted com­puter an­i­mated film of the an­i­ma­tion stu­dio.

Toy­world Carnar­von, in part­ner­ship with the Carnar­von Civic Cen­tre, is run­ning a Cap­tain Un­der­pants colour­ing com­pe­ti­tion to cel­e­brate the screen­ing of the movie.

En­try forms and a Cap­tain Un­der­pants colour­ing pic­ture can be col­lected from Toy­world Carnar­von or the Civic Cen­tre be­fore the com­pe­ti­tion closes on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 11.

Win­ners will re­ceive toys and movie vouch­ers.

Camel Lane The­atre at the Carnar­von Civic Cen­tre is screen­ing Cap­tain Un­der­pants: The First Epic Movie this Satur­day at 1pm.
