4.0 out of 5 stars Righteous! November 20, 2004
Verified Purchase
Relentlessly optimistic, drunk and defeated, man-child, sponge-man -- this movie has it all. Most of the parents in the audience didn't get it. But I've been an outspoken SpongeBob fan for years. Hell, I'll bet I like the television show even more than my children do -- and they like it a lot.

It's hard to describe this film, at least in a way that will do it justice. Is it great? In it's own twisted, surreal way, sure. It's littered with double entendres, to be sure, and a few nautical butt cheeks, too. I suppose the studio insisted on the latter. The bottom line is that we need SpongeBob, maybe more than we ever did. His good cheer in the face of disaster is downright inspirational. Plus, he can blow bubbles with the best of them.

The evil villain, Plankton, speaks for all of us when he says, "His chops are too righteous!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! February 19, 2005
A Kid's Review
The Spongebob Squarepants Movie has non-stop laughs and bizzare jokes are rare in modern TV cartoons.

Some people are saying "this is just a dumb kid's movie" and others are saying "this movie is more for adults than kids". Neither are true.

This is a 'family movie'. I don't think many kids know what 'family movie' means, there have been so few recently.

A 'family film' is a movie that is enjoyable for adults AND children. Most modern-day viewers are forced to believe that dumb films like "The Cat in the Hat" and "Shrek" are 'family movies' because they have kid's plotlines, although they are crammed with swear words and sexual references.

Pixar succeeded in making the best animated films ever made and they made more money then SHREK. And the Pixar films are rated G. What does that tell you? (The Incredibles is rated PG, but there were no swear words or sexual references in that either).

People have also said Spongebob is 'crude'. Well, there are burps and a few other gross jokes, but it's the most wholesome thing on TV, aside from Dora the Explorer and other shows made for children under age: four, but let's face it... NO ONE OVER FOUR WANTS TO WATCH THAT!

Besides, this is COMPLETELY innocent compared to Shrek, which has unlimited burping gags. No one can claim Spongebob is rude, if they own Shrek. (If you don't even claim Shrek is rude... well, what do you think IS rude? That's as bad as kid's movies get).

There are few new cartoons that are as enjoyable as Spongebob (The Fairly Oddparents, Tiny Toon Adventures, Duck Dodgers and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends are up there).

Bottom line: Does Spongebob deserve his reputation? I'd like to respond with a big, fat YES!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing adventure March 2, 2005
The controversy over SpongeBob's sexual orientation has been quite absorbing but nowhere near as involving as this very funny movie based on the popular TV series on Nickelodeon. Just in case you've been living under a rock for the last five years, SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy, Mr. Krabs and all the residents of Bikini Bottom have become the most hip (and funny) half hour this side of "The Simpsons". More importantly, it's a program that almost all family members can watch without becoming offended (well, except for those folks wondering about SpongeBob's sexuality). It's a fun way to spend an hour and a half with the kids. After losing a treasured promotion to manage the Krusty Krab 2 restaurant because he's just a kid, SpongeBob is the only person who can stop Plankton from taking over Bikini Bottom. Plankton resorts to Plan Z (having used every other plan in the alphabet) to frame Mr. Krabs for the theft of King Neptune's crown. The diminutive Plankton hopes to discover the secret to the Krabby Patty and ultimately rule the undersea world! Meanwhile, Spongebob and his dim witted friend Patrick must travel to the dreaded Shell City to recover the King's crown and stop Plankton before it's too late.

Featuring a marvelous cast of guest voices including Jeffrey Tambor ("Arrested Development"), Scarlet Johansson ("Lost in Translation"), Clancy Brown ("The Shawshank Redemption"), Alec Baldwin and, of all people, David Hasselhoff, the film may lack the sparkle of the best episodes of the series but it more than makes up for this shortcoming with a number of witty gags.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm a Goofy Goober!!! (Rock!) November 19, 2004
After reading some negative reviews for this film, I was pleasantly surprised at how funny (with a touch of demented) this movie was. When I see reviews stating things like "Worst animated film of 2004" I have to wonder if they were either a) a fan of the show and or b) at the same movie I was at. Also to the reviewer who said "I'd rather watch a 24/7 marathon of the Teletubbies"...I'd say, I dare ya! I will say that I probably could've went my whole life without seeing Patrick in fishnet stockings, not to mention his bare necessities!

Spongebob the movie seemed like a 99 minute episode. It has all the same goofy, zany, and downright strange humor of the half hour you watch on TV. I thought that outside characters like Dennis (Alec Baldwin) and the real life David Hasslehoff would be dumb and they were, but in a good way. I noticed in the audience tonight (opening night) there were mostly parents with their children, but there were also some couples like my 28 year old self who actually got my girlfriend to go with me (is that love or what?!). I heard adults laughing more than kids many times. I think that's Spongebob's appeal though, it's fun for kids, but some adults (especially fans of Ren & Stimpy or Beavis & Butthead) can crack up too. I would go into the plot but...ok I will...

Spongebob and Patrick set out to find the crown of King Neptune, so he can thaw out Mr. Krabs who Neptune thinks stole it...still with me? Good. So SB and "Pat" jump in their Krabby Patty mobile (complete with pickles for wheels) and embark on their quest. Along the way they get help from Neptune's daughter Mindy who gives them a magic "bag of wind" and turns them into men by strategically placing seaweed on their faces as moustaches.
