Editorial Reviews

SpongeBob SquarePants has gotten himself into quite a predicament. After being entrusted by Mr. Krabs to keep the Krabby Patty formula safe, SpongeBob is overcome with grief for losing the recipe. He then relies on the help of the most unlikely companion, Plankton, who wants the secret Krabby Patty recipe for himself. With the help of his friends, SpongeBob must use Plankton’s memory machine to retrace the happiest moments of his life to find the Krabby Patty formula in time for the Krusty Krab’s Eleventy Seventh anniversary

Customer Reviews

The cameos are impressive.
Eric Armstrong
It would have been cool to see SpongeBob develop from an annoying brat to something more, something not so shallow.
Masha
It was weak and unfunny, and failed to develop the characters as usual.

Don't waste your money and DVR it on Nickelodeon if you need to. Too much live-action. Real actors and no Bob. My son loves Spongebob, but lost interest soon after movie started. My son is 5 and has no idea who Will Farrell is. It seems to me that if your 5-yr old likes Craig Ferguson or your kids enjoyed SpongeBob in the year 2001 and those kids are now in Jr High or High school then buy this movie. Otherwise (if your kids haven't seen it yet), stick to SpongeBob Sq Pants Movie about Shell City.

As a long time supporter of SpongeBob, I was very excited to see this.
But when I actually saw it, I was shocked.
This was terrible- the jokes weren't funny, the plot was dry, the ending was terrible, and there was WAY too much Patchy The Pirate. All in all, skip this one. Your kids will hate it as much as you will.

Lately the Spongebob DVDs have been less entertaining, but Truth or Square is without a doubt the best Spongebob DVD yet. I am a Patchy fan and Patchy anchors this DVD. The cameos are impressive. You will need to watch it more than once to catch all of the subtle humor. Thanks Nickelodeon for making a DVD that kids and their parents can watch together and both enjoy more than once.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The animation is especially good, from the new opening sequence to the classic animation, it is all well done. The story is sweet and the flashbacks are funny. The icing on the cake though was the sweet O' Krusty Krab song at the end, very touching and a nice take on a classic Christmas song.

Spongebob and friends still got it!

Written by my teenaged son, read and approved by me:

First off, I cannot believe that Nickelodeon hyped this up as much as they did; it's surprisingly lackluster, even though it was supposed to be an intriguing tale filled with surprises. The bonus episodes are pretty good (Shame about The Card; would have been much cooler if the animated talking platinum holographic #54 wasn't just another endorsement), but for this review, I'm focusing on the actual TV movie.

Story: 7/10 - When the Krusty Krab crew (along with Patrick) are locked in the freezer on the Eleventy-Seventh Krusty Krab anniversary, they try to get out as they reminesce on all the good times they had. The trouble is, this episode shifts to the Patchy subplot (a.k.a. Celebrity Roundup) too frequently, and barely any reminescing is going on here. Plus, the 1930's SpongeBob sequence is too cheesy; they could have added in more actual gags instead of focusing on a repetitive song for the whole sequence.

Deepness: 4/10 - This story isn't particularly deep, being a shallow, soulless parody of most clip shows (which themselves can be pretty good, but are usually not). There aren't even any twists, aside from the fact that Plankton manages to get in.

Characters: 6/10 - Not particularly great; they could have done a lot more with these characters, maybe developed them as a result of them being stuck in the freezer. It would have been cool to see SpongeBob develop from an annoying brat to something more, something not so shallow. And, of course, it would be very interesting to see some tension develop between the characters (And Then There Were None, anyone?).

I was once a fan of SpongeBob SquarePants, but the series has token a turn for the worst as of late. I feel the series has strayed away from what made it so succesful. Gone are the carefully-crafted plotlines, hilarious character chemistry, and vibrant animation and artwork of the past. Most of these elements have been replaced by overly-excessive gross humor, abuse towards Squidward that makes me feel sorry for the poor octopus, generic plotlines and bizzare new characters, and crass, overly-detailed animation.

Truth or Square was no exception. It was weak and unfunny, and failed to develop the characters as usual. While the Square Roots documentary discussing the history of our fallen sponge was hilariously funny, this episode proves that the new writers will never learn. Most of the gags and characterizations continued to be cold and paper-thin (Mr. Krabs' obsession with money, Squidward feeling almost no sympathy for SB, etc.). While it definitely showed promise, there were plot holes, bad jokes, and awful characterizations abound that kept this special from being enjoyable.

That being said, some of the bonus episodes managed to be good for the most part, a possible sign that although SB may be beginning to improve, the writers still have almost no talent at crafting overhyped TV movies. My favorites were "Porous Pockets" and "Choir Boys". It's a shame most of the others were poor and unenjoyable for the most part ("Krusty Krushers" was incredibly weak, while "The Card" was gross and boring with almost no interesting parts).

If I were you, I would definitely stick with the first three seasons and the feature film, because SB has very clearly lost his touch.
