Trivia

The ship used for the live action pirate scenes in the beginning was the 1960 replica of the HMS Bounty, a merchant ship used by the British Empire in the late 1700s. The replica ship was sunk in late 2012 by Hurricane Sandy. Interestingly enough, a character in the movie (and series) is named Sandy. See more »

Goofs

In the opening sequence, Mr. Krabs says to Spongebob that the customer "took a bite of the burger, and... No cheese!", but when Spongebob goes in to help the customer, there isn't a bite taken from the burger. See more »

Quotes

Pure fun!!!
23 November 2004 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

Take the funniest things about Spongebob Squarepants (wacky-anarchist environment and extremely funny animated drawings) and make it an hour-and-a-half long. It's non-stop laughs and plenty of color and all-out craziness. Spongebob and Patrick go off-model so much that it's an eyegasmic delight for the cartoon maniacs out there.

Sooo many entertaining moments. It's literally a laugh-a-minute film... lots of stuff that flies right over the kiddies' heads.

The one thing I didn't like about the movie - the character Mindy (King Neptunes princess daughter). She didn't fit in well with the rest of the character designs - she looks more like a character you would've seen on the Daria animated series.

Also keep an eye out for the big sea creatures' wrestlin' scene with the evil diver... such smooth and precise animation of so many characters at once that I just sat there in pure awe.
