Family Movie Night with Captain Underpants! – Me, Myself and Kids

Family Movie Night with Captain Underpants!

A Day in the Life Family Kids Reviews & Giveaways Things We Love


I have mentioned before that until very recently my kids have not been the biggest fans of the movie theatre. Sometimes it takes a lot of persuasion and even bribery.

My oldest saw his first movie when he was 2.5 years old and I’m not quite sure exactly when his love for the movies stopped. I think it was around the time he realized he can watch everything he needs to at home on the TV or iPad!

My youngest didn’t quite care either way…sometimes he liked it and sometimes it was too loud and so he didn’t.

However, over the last number of months it has been easier getting them to go the theatre. My husband and I love watching movies, both in the theatre and at home, so we want our kids to be able to enjoy it just as much as we do (I mean, who doesn’t love popcorn for lunch or dinner 😉 )

A few months ago it was a PA day and we decided that we will go see a movie with some friends. We were so excited to see Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.

My son had been reading the series for school and was really enjoying them. So it was an obvious choice for us when it came to the theatres.


The kids absolutely loved it. Each one loved how a book they read came to life on the screen.

They loved seeing all the adventures they had read about take place in a movie. And they talked about it for hours and hours. My son and his best friend even commented how the two main characters reminded them of themselves.

So when we heard that Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie was available on Digital HD, Blu-Ray and DVD, we were thrilled!

We knew that even though the kids had seen it once, they would want to again and this time we could make a family movie night out of it! Even hubs was super excited since he hadn’t had the chance to see it yet.

For those that aren’t familiar, Captain Underpants is based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey and presented by DreamWorks Animation.

This hilarious family comedy tells the story of two overly imaginative best friends, George and Harold, who hypnotize their principal into thinking he’s the hero from their comic books: Captain Underpants.

Now that the movie is on Digital HD, DVD and Blu-Ray, you can join in on the fun no matter where you are. And as a bonus, this epic adventure continues with 30+ minutes of action packed special features. There are engaging features, deleted scenes, a lyric video and more!

What we love about the Digital HD is that we can literally take this movie anywhere. Just log into our iTunes account and voila! Movie on the go! The kids love that they can watch wherever and whenever they want.


And let me tell you, we are now on our fourth viewing!!

So go check it out! And you too can Tra-La-Laa with your whole family!! Buy it NOW

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.
