CAP­TAIN UN­DER­PANTS ★★★★

The Wellingtonian - - Out & About -

(G, 89mins)

Ar­riv­ing 20 years af­ter Dav Pilkey cre­ated the first of his 12 much-loved and high­ly­con­tro­ver­sial books, David Soren’s ( Turbo) in­au­gu­ral an­i­mated adap­ta­tion is both a de­light­ful primer and solid school holiday en­ter­tain­ment.

Like last year’s The Peanuts Movie, this does a ter­rific job of cap­tur­ing the spirit and style of its source ma­te­rial.

The hu­mour is broad, the an­i­ma­tion chunky and the vo­cal per­for­mances over-the-top, the per­fect com­bi­na­tion for the books’ most-avid au­di­ence. - James Croot
