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.
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.
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.

I can't believe this is real. Thunderpants. Rupert Grint. This is about a boy who farts so much that he goes to space. I love the world we live in.Published 9 months ago by Sara Ellen
Fun! Very entertaining! I had a great time watching the movie. At times, I cried and laughed at the same time. I loved the humor.Published 16 months ago by Amazon Customer
O.K., I grew up watching a lot of British humor and with three older brothers who warped me at an early age into appreciating flatulent humor. Read morePublished on March 9, 2014 by Amazon Customer
cute movie but best bought in the batgin bin. Relys too much on the n Wheezley from Harry Potter to make it sell. Otherwise it would just sit on the shelf. Read morePublished on January 20, 2014 by Ralph A. Linder Jr.
