Goofs

Spongebob points out that he has been awarded Employee of the Month award 374 times in a row. That would mean that he would have worked at the Krusty Krab for 31 years. This could not happen - according to Stephen Hillenburg, Spongebob was born in 1984, which would mean that, as of 2004, he would only be 20. See more »

Patrick Star: SpongeBob?

Patrick Star: Hey, where are you going?
SpongeBob SquarePants: I'm going home, Patrick.
Patrick Star: But what about Mr Krabs?
SpongeBob SquarePants: What about us? WE'LL never survive in that trench! You said it yourself, this is man's country. And let's face it, Pat. We're just... kids.
Patrick Star: We're NOT kids!
SpongeBob SquarePants: OPEN YOUR EYES, PATRICK! We blow bubbles, we eat ice cream - we worship a dancing peanut, for corn's sake! WE DON'T BELONG OUT HERE.

Well, I liked it
26 November 2004 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I've read some of the extremely negative comments on this film, and I'm surprised. I thought it was cute, funny, and imaginative, with some well-timed dramatic effects (when they cross the county line, the final fate of the woman with ice cream, ...). It even had a Ween song.

If you're curious about the film, I urge you to see it for yourself, and don't be dissuaded by the negative reviews.

BTW, to provide some background, I come from the 'sappy Simpsons = cra**y Simpsons' school, and I used to love Ren and Stimpy until Bill Camp took over.

My wife and I both really liked the film.
