CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS ★★★★
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
