QUICK TAKE:
Animated Action-Comedy: Two schoolboys hypnotize their strict principal into thinking he is a superhero, and then they run afoul of a very real super-villain.
PLOT:
George (voice of KEVIN HART) and Harold (voice of THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH) are a couple of fun-loving grade-schoolers who became fast friends in kindergarten and have been virtually inseparable ever since. Over the years, they have discovered they both are artistic and have come up with a number of goofy comic books together with George the storyteller and Harold the artist.

They're also a couple of pranksters who love to pull off all sorts of goofy stunts to thumb their nose at the totalitarian rule of Principal Krupp (voice of ED HELMS), a strict, mean-spirited educator who is obsessed with proving the two boys are behind all of the hijinks that have befallen the school over the years. Harold and George eventually go too far, sabotaging the science project of a humorless classmate named Melvin (voice of JORDAN PEELE). Caught on hidden surveillance footage, Krupp seizes the opportunity to separate Harold and George and put them into completely different classes.

Eager to stay together, the two boys hatch a scheme to hypnotize Krupp and convince him he is their favorite comic-book creation, the good-hearted, eternally valiant Captain Underpants, and they are his faithful sidekicks. Captain Underpants soon wins the heart of Edith (voice of KRISTEN SCHAAL), the school's quirky cafeteria lady. Unfortunately, this all coincides with the arrival of a legitimate super-villain, the school's new science teacher named "Professor P" (voice of NICK KROLL), who has designs on inventing a special laser ray that will rob all humans of their senses of humor.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
The film and its humor and action and elementary school-age protagonists will definitely appeal to kids 11 and under. Parents will like that it contains no profanity or sexual content (not even mild innuendo) at all.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For mild rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
