Reviews:
"CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS' charm lies in its lighthearted and lightly scatological silliness....In its most spirited moments, CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS is smart enough to recognize that being dumb can be its strongest asset." -- Grade: B - 06/01/2017 A.V. Club


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's straight-up ridiculous from start to finish....It's at its best when it's cutting loose and delivering slapstick and fantasy sequences of escalating absurdity." - 06/02/2017 RogerEbert.com


"[F]unny, fresh and frantic, playing with format and genre, adding meta, self-reflective winks. The film is propelled by its hyperactive energy and quirky style..." - 06/01/2017 Los Angeles Times


"If your child would be amused by seeing the word 'underpants' in the name of a movie, this one will entertain....It throws in a positive message at the end." - 06/01/2017 New York Times


"[T]he film owns its immaturity. And the argument it appealingly offers in defense is that it’s healthy, even vital, to be able to laugh at scatological silliness, adults included." - 06/01/2017 Boston Globe


"The animation in CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS has a softly popping candy-colored sheen. It’s a very pleasing concoction to look at, and it zips along infectiously..." - 06/01/2017 Variety
