Thunderpants is a British-German family film about a boy whose incredible capacity for flatulence gets him a job as an astronaut.

Underneath all that expelled air, it's really just a tale of a boy finding his talent and making the most of it. A well-made, quirky oddity for adults, but a riot for kids and Beano nostalgists.Empire

A boy who cannot control his nonstop flatulence becomes mixed up with the U.S. space program.
