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!"

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.

I can remember as a youngster sitting around the TV with mom and dad and watching "our shows" together, like the Carol Burnett show, in the 1970s. Now that I'm a daddy myself, "SpongeBob SquarePants" provides the same common experience, although sometimes it's hard to swallow your dinner while laughing so hard we all spew food particles around the room.

We were thrilled to find out the movie was coming out. That explains why there have been no new episodes on TV for so long; they've been busy elsewhere. And it works! Despite a couple of negative reviews I see here, any sponge fan would have to be in a truly bum mood to not enjoy this flick. The problems in translating a small-screen show to the big screen are usually that the characters are overly stretched, the story doesn't ring true to what we're used to, or the filmmakers don't have a clue how to turn from the short format to a 90-minute story. I'm pleased to say that none of these things are a problem here, and that the whole thing holds up beautifully in the theater.

The story, as you've probably heard by now, involves Plankton's latest attempt to take over the world. The big news for fans is that he finally gets Mr. Krabs' recipe for Krabby Patties! Guest star Jeffrey Tambor (King Neptune) unwittingly allows Plankton access to the secret recipe when he believes Mr. Krabs has stolen his crown, freezes him until SpongeBob and Patrick can get the crown back, and while the Krusty Krab is shut down the little megalomaniac sneaks in and steals the recipe, making the Chum Bucket a success at long last.

Great movie! Optimistic as always. Reasonable for kids to watch. Plain zany humor with no apparent agenda except to make you feel happy inside. I honestly hated SpongeBob when he first hit the TV, but then I watched it a bit with my kids. It can be really funny if you have an off beat sense of humor. What is truly good about it is that it is family friendly. It is crude at times, but the basic point of the show is doing the right thing, and treating one another with love and respect. (I know some say that there is a homosexual agenda behind the show, but one can also see that it is a show about kids...for kids. I don't see anything overtly "gay" about the show. Unless one goes looking for such things.) I feel good about watching the show with my daughter. I am amazed that something so successful uses the same formula to entertain over and over yet has not bowed to the negativity the world spouts the way shows like Family Guy or South Park have. This one is KID FRIENDLY!
