Harold Hutchins and George Beard have been best friends since kindergarten.  The two go to George’s tree house and create comic books.    George creates the stories and Harold does the drawing.  Also, they pull off the most epic pranks in Jerome Horwitz Elementary School because their school feels like the penitentiary.  After causing a toilet paper fight during the invention convention, Principal   Krupp is sick and tired of the pair.  So he decides to put them in separate classes.  Harold and George believe this will end their friendship because long distance relationships don’t work.  They try to get the evidence from Principal Krupp’s office but they are distracted by a file cabinet with their names on it.  Inside the cabinet is every toy Principal Krupp has confiscated from them, including George’s 3D Hypno Ring.  Principal Krupp walks in and catches them.  As he signs the classroom change slip, George uses the ring to hypnotize him.  They make Krupp believe he is Captain Underpants (a fictional character they created).  They believe this is hilarious until the Captain jumps out of the window and into the world.  They must get him back.  With time they learn that snapping makes him Captain Underpants and water makes him Principal Krupp.  However, when he is Principal Krupp he wants to sign the slip.  And when he is Captain Underpants, he is irresponsible.  So irresponsible, he hires a new science teacher, Professor P., without any experience or credentials.  Professor P has a plan that is worst Harold or George could imagine, but the horrifying truth, they will need Captain Underpants to help.

Based on the book series, The New Captain Underpants, this movie is funny for both kids and adults (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  Parents will enjoy all the Easter eggs like the sign in Krupp’s office that reads “Hope Ends Here”.  Also, there is more than one type of animation.   From computer graphics to 2D to puppets.  It feels like you are in another world and you want to know more about the 2 main characters that created Captain Underpants.  The best part for children is when George and Harold go inside Krupp’s home.  They get a glimpse into his life and see that he is missing something.  Kids will see their teachers and school staff are people.  With all those positives, it did not need to be in 3D.  Also, it could have spent a few minutes giving details on one of their pranks but you better believe there will be a part 2.  Only stay after the first set of end credits, there is nothing at the very end.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

Frank is at a job he hates with a manager, Tom, he can’t stand.  So, Frank doesn’t receive the news of a 6-month relocation well.  His girlfriend, Jess, tries to be supportive but that worries Frank.  She seems to know more about his relocation than he does.  That night he gets a call from Jack, an old friend.  Jack wants to hang out; and after a few leg pulls, Frank goes to meet him.  Later, Frank invites Jack to an office party.  Frank is shocked when he sees Jess cheating on him with Tom at the party.  Pissed he leaves with Frank and head to a bar.  Frank antagonizes him to approach a girl he has been eyeing at the bar.  Frank approaches her and takes her to his car.  After hooking up, the car door opens, the woman is stabbed and Frank wakes up on the ground in only his underwear.  He goes to his car to see it covered in blood.  He realizes the murder weapon in his underwear.  And the worst part, the dead girl is in his trunk.   He calls Jack and drives to him with the body in the trunk.  Jack thinks Frank is nuts for not calling the police but decides to help him hide the body.  The two go on a road trip for whom no one asked.  And the road trip is not just to hide a body but to uncover the truth about these two men.

This thriller will keep you on edge as Frank and Jack drive with a dead body in the trunk while devising a plan to get rid of it.  With every encounter Jack’s demeanor, walk, and even the sound of his voice changes.  He feels the urgency as the body starts to decompose and exposure is imminent.  As Jack continues down this road, you wonder if he is in control of the situation or if his strings are being pulled.  In the end, all things will become clear to Jack.  But will this change him or just make him what he truly is.  This journey leads Jack and Frank to come across the best and the worst people you will every meet from different walks of life.  From retirees, newlyweds, a vet, and the heartless, each character is another link in the chain,  not just script fillers.   However, the only downfall is that the backing track often drowns out whispers or “fly on the wall” conversations.  So, be prepared to want to turn up the volume or rewind to hear it.  Overall, if you are crime show or thriller fan, this is one to watch.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars
