Trivia

Originally SpongeBob and Patrick left Shell City and met Sandy on dry land and while she gives them advice to take the bus from town to the beach she's being followed by a group of men in black suits. This scene was cut from the film due to Patrick throwing up repeatedly. See more »

Goofs

When they are in the Shell City, smoke from the outlet causes the water sprinklers to spray the store. In real life the water sprinklers in the ceiling detect heat, not smoke. Furthermore, only the sprinklers that got hot enough to fuse their elements will permit water flow, not the entire sprinkler system. See more »

28 September 2006 | by (THAILAND, BANGKOK) – See all my reviews

SpongeBob finally made it to the big screen and the good thing is - it is nothing less of the TV series, just longer and more fun. Staring SpongeBob and Patrick in search of stolen crown of King Neptune, before he turns Mr. Crab into fried crab.

If you're a fan of the TV series this will not disappoint you at all, and if you're not a fan you will become one. Surprisingly, the movie able to bring all the characteristic and style of the show on to the big screen without trying too hard. It is still the same old SpongeBob, and that what I like about this movie.

The story is consistence and the humor is still fun to watch, there is always something new coming up making it unpredictable. And the original song is brilliantly written and somewhat quite inspiring. SpongeBob still make it big despite being a 2D cartoon cause the animation here is colorfully done.

Overall: I enjoy the whole film, but maybe a little downside on the David Hasselhoff parts. But overall it is an extremely enjoyable film.

Reason To Watch: Finally Able To See SpongeBob In Full Length Movie. Triple The Fun.

Reason Not To: Dislike Real People Acting With Cartoon.

Rating: 7/10 (Grade: B-).

Please Rate (Y/N) After Reading, Thank You.
