The ultimate frat party or cult film - "Thunderpants" is quickly gaining steam as the new "Airplane!" or "Rocky Horror Picture Show." I was blown away by the production values and cast considering the puerile subject matter, while repeat viewings reveal the humor to be much more nuanced than just some cheap fart jokes. And although he only has a supporting role, Rupert Grint absolutely deserves top billing. His delivery is so over-the-top it's like the rest of the cast is speaking in monotone. He doesn't just deserve an Oscar, but a Nobel Prize. Best performance ever!

Note that the domestic U.S. release shows a shorter running time than the previous Canadian import, but the film is in fact complete (the import simply counted the supplemental material in the run time). This is a delightfully cheesy film, and it would be unfortunate to cut one, let alone nine, minutes from it.

This is the only film I am familiar with that dwells on the subject of a boy with two stomachs and a rather unseemly capability that allows him to not only travel the world as an opera "singer," (please don't ask) but also allows him the ability to fly into space atop the world's first self-propelled rocket.

Right off the bat, I think I should advise that this film was purchased as a gift (it is probably most suited to pre-adolescent boys), but given the oddity of the subject matter, I decided to preview it (to make sure it was a suitable gift for the age range I was buying for, and admittedly out of somewhat morbid curiosity.) As others have mentioned, this is absolutely a one-joke movie, and it wears thin after a short while, yet the pre-teen market will love it. Some of the cast members are very interesting, particularly Stephen Fry as a prosecutor, Simon Callow as an underhanded opera singer, and Ned Beatty as the General in charge of the space program.

The DVD features some extras including two promotional trailers, a very brief "making of" short, and one of the worst music videos I have ever seen.

Kids will love this odorous comedy, while adults will more likely roll their eyes and leave the room. The movie is no masterwork, but taken for what it is it succeeds as harmless entertainment.

This is a great family movie. Absolutely hilarious. It speaks into friendship and following your dreams-- the only reason I'd give it four instead of five is that there are some quotes in the movie that children shouldn't be repeating, and as a movie that's marketed as a kids movie, knowing the sponges they are...things like "I can't control my arse" ... Could be funny... But inappropriate nonetheless. This did played without a hitch in my DVD player and arrived on my doorstep within a week of my pressing the "order" button and the price was on point. Lovely.

A silly movie that made my nephews (7,9, 12) laugh hysterically and made me laugh hysterically when they explained the movie to their parents....Fun and silly with a nice underlying message about bullies and friendship.

In my universe, there is nothing funnier than a well-timed fart. So, needless to say, I was looking forward to this movie. But rather than being an enjoyable gas, I found it to be quite stale...DO NOT give this one a whiff!

Rupert Grint apparently did a good job delivering what the the film's director and producers wanted. Unfortunately, what they wanted makes any Three Stooges movie look like an Academy Award winning documentary.

The directing, special effects, cinemtography, and writing combine to make a move I'd have walked out on as an eight year old. The only redeeming features I can find in this film is that it gave Rupert Grint a vehicle to work on learning his craft and it gave him a paycheck. This has none of the excellence found in Wild Target or Driving Lessons.

Finnaly, a movie that all boys can and will relate to! My entire family laughed hysterically while at the same time learning to look at diversity in a whole new light. This film should be required curriculum for all 5th, 6th and 7th grade boys. Lets hope that filmakers agree and produce more great films for our guys!

I like juvenile poop and fart humor as much as the next guy, but I think this film may have gone a bit over the top and finally made me feel immature for watching it. That said, the sets and effects were surprisingly good, there was an actual plot, and there were several high-profile actors in this cheesy film that mean the acting was much better than. A film of this caliber typically would have achieved.
