In the Hungarian version, much of the dialogue is rendered in rhymes and includes a lot more puns and wordplays than the original. See more »
I never watched the SpongeBob TV show and only saw this movie because my little brother and his friend needed someone to look after them in the cinema. I didn't have high hopes but decided to give it a chance - after all, I loved "Rocko's Modern Life" as a kid, so how bad could it be? Anyway, I was skeptic, but this movie blew me away. This isn't just one of those "pretty good for a kids' flick" deals, this is a good movie, period.
The characters are hilarious and the sight gags are great; the scene in which SpongeBob and his idiot friend Patrick drink one or two ice creams too many is positively hilarious, as well as some other sequences. The humour is typical over-the-top kiddie stuff but I liked it anyway, which is rare. There is also a great deal of surreal humour thrown in, which is unusual and refreshing for this type of flick. If there's anything a movie shouldn't be, it's banal and uninteresting, and SpongeBob is neither - you'll either embrace the over-the-top quality of the film, or hate it utterly. I liked it a lot, and so did my brother. If you can swallow your pretensions, you will find yourself having a good time with this one. Definitely worth seeing.
Oddly enough, while most people complain that this movie wasn't as good as the show it's based on, I've watched a few episodes of SpongeBob and I could barely make it through them. The movie is far more enjoyable, in my opinion. However you feel about that, this is a great surreal kids' film in the vein of Alice in Wonderland, although a lot brighter, more colourful, and with a slew of Stephen Hillenburg's demented humour thrown in. If liking this movie makes me stupid, childish, or a dork - then so be it! Great stuff.
