Kid reviews for Captain Underpants: Mega Blissmas
August 10, 2021
Concern with a raindeer...
I think this movie is just fine, with just toilet-themed violence. However, when the underpantied warrior says hi to a one reindeer, he raised his hoof as if using the middle finger gesture. Fine for 9yr olds.

I am very disappointed in Dreamworks. They have yet again taken an IP and driven it into the ground. Captain Underpants has fallen into the same trap as Mr. Peabody. What started out as a quaint, witty cartoon in the '60s became a cute-but-annoying CGI movie. Then, it was adapted into a Netflix original reboot full of butts and potty humor. Dreamworks has a habit of completely killing their already-not-excellent movies' reputation with truly cruddy TV series (see Turbo, Boss Baby, and Trolls). Captain Underpants was a great 10-book series with less-great 11th and 12th books. Dreamworks turned it into a movie, because it just had to be done. Then they made the movie into a TV series that is nothing but a generic hunk of doody that is aesthetically changed to be a shell of the Captain Underpants books. THEN it was made into a truly terrible "Blissmas" special about two selfish brats who travel back in time to a young Santa who supposedly invented Christmas, and they persuade him to alter his ideas into a holiday called "Blissmas" that is all about professional wrestling, lasers, setting fires to trees, lasers, robots, lasers, Wipeout-esque obstacle courses, and lasers. Overall, it is a third-grade boy's dream holiday. George and Harold love their stupid, selfish, sacreligious savagery until they find out that in Blissmas, you have to GIVE stuff instead of GETTING stuff. Then they go back in time again to stop themselves from changing Christmas. They never learn a lesson, except that getting is always better than getting. What kills me, though, is that throughout the entire movie, Christmas carols like "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Joy to The World" are playing in the background, yet nobody mentions Jesus or anything. Just don't bother with Blissmas. (By the way, There's no potty humor category, so I'm putting it as sexy stuff.)
