Rupert Grint’s Rave Reviews for Thunderpants


“Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies) is absolutely sensational as Alan, totally stealing the show from the wayward Patrick and his chuffing. He is barely recognizable from Ron as the brilliant boffin behind the Thunderpants design with his big false teeth and ultra perm hairdo.”

Digital Reviews Daily


“The most outstanding performance comes from one of the child actors, Rupert Grint. Following on from his role as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter he does another great job with the character of Alan A. Allen.”

Domicilium


“Rupert Grint follows up his role as Ron Weasley in “Harry Potter” with a totally different performance as whiz-kid Alan.”

BBC Nottingham Movies


“More importantly, rising star Rupert Grint (who played Ron in Harry Potter) delivers another terrific supporting performance as a child genius”

Tiscali Film & TV


“Bruce Cook and Rupert Grint give excellent performances, although Rupert Grint is the one who shines in the film.”

Splatt Review


“The acting in this film is quite good and Rupert Grint is superb as Allen and masters his funny accent and comes across as quite funny.”

DooYoo


“British director Pete Hewitt’s movie has some charming touches, notably a winning performance from Rupert Grint – last seen as red-haired Ron Weasley in ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’.”

BBC Films


“Clearly the power to break wind isn’t quite the same as magic, but at least Patrick Smash gets a sidekick to equal Harry’s. In fact, the same sidekick, since under the perm and false teeth, Rupert Grint delivers a performance of the same calibre as the scene-stealing Ron of Harry Potter – albeit a Ron with a dramatically increased vocabulary and a posh accent.”

Empire Online


“Despite the considerable charm of child actor Rupert Grint (Ron from Harry Potter) this is a movie of relentless silliness and an inexplicable number of green Minis (manic product placement or a very in-joke?).”

Daily Mail


“The two young actors playing the lead roles of Patrick and Alan (Bruce Cook and Rupert Grint), were very good and there were many other familiar faces in the movie that help it to succeed.”

Phase 9


“Of the two kid leads, Cook makes a rather flat impression as lumbering loser Patrick, leaving Grint to work overtime as inventor pal Alan.”

Variety


“Rupert Grint, who plays Ron in Harry Potter, has fun with Alan’s plum-toned vowels. It’s a caricature, a piece of pantomime, exactly in tune with the spirit of the film. Simon Callow’s opera singer and Stephen Fry’s barrister are equally over the top.”

Eye For Film


“The performances are all very good, particularly Cook… There’s also good support, not least from Grint, but also from the likes of Stephen Fry, Celia Imrie, Paul Giamatti and Ned Beatty…”

“Rupert Grint is a fantastic actor, but ask anyone to speak with false teeth and it impairs their ennunciation.”

eInsiders


“Thankfully, when the relentless adolescent flatulating becomes too much to endure, you still have Rupert Grint and an out-of-place Paul Giamatti to keep you company for the duration.”

Film Fiend


“Bruce Cook and Rupert Grint give excellent performances, although Rupert Grint is the one who shines in the film.”

The Rap: Film Reviews


“Thankfully, when the relentless adolescent flatulating becomes too much to endure, you still have Rupert Grint and an out-of-place Paul Giamatti to keep you company for the duration.”

ShanBiz


“And as an extra gain you will find great Rupert Grint from Harry Potter, as Alan A. Allen, a genius kid with no sense of smell.”
