Trivia

For the first time in a while, a character (Squidward) references the sea creatures' inability to breathe air. Bubbles the Magic Dolphin gives them this power in the film, but in other times on land (The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004), for instance), characters can breathe without issue. See more »

Goofs

At the sacrifice scene, Squidward first appears with his executioner mask already on, but he then puts on again in the next shot of him, even though he first appeared with the mask already worn. See more »

Quotes

Sandy Cheeks: Hello? Hello? Guess y'all don't want my money.
Mr. Krabs: Money?
[He take's Sandy's money from through the drive-thru and hands the squirrel her patties]
Mr. Krabs: Thank you come again.

User Reviews

 
Remarkably true to its title
27 June 2015 | by peefynSee all my reviews

This is my first meeting with Spongebob, as I have never seen the show or the previous movie. I was somewhat familiar with it, as anyone exposed to internet popular culture would be, but not enough to know any of the characters by anything but looks. The movie did a great job in establishing everything I needed to know.

I loved how it combined cartoons, live action and CGI. It was flawless. And I was amazed that they dared to have so much of the movie in plain old hand animation. I enjoyed the plot, but I sometimes wished they would have made it a bit more complex, as that could safely have been done without making it harder to understand for children.

The first part of the movie seems like what could have been a regular episode, with small Banderas-breaks in between. The latter part is the fish out of water-story, which could probably have worked just as well without the build up from the first part.

I'm sure children loves this movie, and if you're open to silly characters breaking the fourth wall, you'll have no trouble watching it with them.
