Stupid but funny
21 November 2004 | by (Sailsbury, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Very stupid indeed. But funny. If you are a fan of the TV show then you will get a kick out of the movie. Most of the jokes are aimed for an older audience...mostly teenagers but there are jokes for the younger audience as well. The movie is not as funny as the show but I'm pretty sure that if you see it you will get a kick out of it anyway. When I walked into the theater most of the parents walked in there with a look on their face saying "God, this is going to be horrible, but I love my kids." and when they were in the theater while the movie was playing they laughed harder and they thought they would.

I wouldn't recommend taking your 5 year old to see it, cause like I said most of the jokes are pretty crude. And some of the younger kids I saw looked confused when Mr. Krabs was telling Spongebob he was making a jackass out of himself and when Patrick was wearing hooker tights.

Not for everyone but a very funny movie indeed.
