rupert-grint-thunderpantsDo you remember when Rupert Grint starred as Alan A Allen, a child prodigy and genius inventor? You don’t? Me neither…

In 2002, a movie named “THUNDERPANTS” was released, billed as… “An uplifting comedy adventure from the director of The Borrowers. Thunderpants tells the story of a 10 year-old boy who dreams of being a spaceman… From the day he is born, Patrick Smash baffles his family and teachers alike with his special gift – an amazing ability to fart. Patrick’s best friend Alan A. Allen (played by Rupert Grint from Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets) is a child genius. With Alan’s help, Patrick learns to harness his special powers taking them on a journey of adventure from fame to danger and finally to the U.S. Space Centre. There the world waits to see if they can fulfill their ambition…”
