Delightful
18 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Oh this one is delightful!! Finally a movie which one can enjoy without inhibition. Being an adult, I love this stuff. The innocence and ignorance... the humour.. the cheesiness, the enthusiasm. I wholeheartedly laugh my head off together with my teen son. Of course my husband thinks it's all humbug.

The bad guys are really really bad and still very funny. The so-called evil brain behind all, you almost would root for him and there are adorable, scenes which can bring tears to your eyes, especially when thinking of sea life being "harvested" by us humans, without any regard to respecting the critters down there. It actually has a bit of a message to the youngsters (and us) about our environment and what impact we have. All very light though.

For all the children and adults who have still a child-like look on life, I sincerely hope that the Spongebob team will continue making movies!
