  • Ten-year-old boys will probably find "Thunderpants" the funniest film imaginable. Most viewers whose playground days are behind them, however, will turn up their noses at a comedy adventure about a boy with uncontrollable flatulence.

  • Fart jokes galore in warmhearted kids fantasy adventure.

    August 21, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Farting is the equaliser of the world, as we know, but as a subject for film, farting offers many traps. Less so, however, if the film is honest and is aimed at a smart audience of 8 - 12 year olds, who understand the true humanising value of a fart.

  • This movie should be shown in prisons so that inmates have a good reason to never return.

    Typical kid's movie. what else should I say?

    A British family film about a boy with flatulence issues who wants to be an astronaut shouldn't have even been greenlit. Thankfully, it was and someone who saw the heart of the movie took control. The core of this film is about an outcast with a seemingly impossible dream who never gives up. It does slip in the middle where the plot goes off on an unnecessary tangent, but it pulls itself back together for the ending. A charming little film - but I have no idea why everyone dresses in green...

    Starts off with the birth - Baby was born with a hell of a lot of hair! The farting problem is apparent from the off-set. Patrick has one friend that sticks by him, Alan. Rupert Grint is a nerdy curly haired kid. Cute though. It's a stupid film. Unless of course you are 12 years old.

    A charming childrens' movie about a boy with farting issues. If you have a problem with your kids hearing ass or damn you may want to skip it because both words are used frequently in this film.
