During a fight between the Krusty Krab and Plankton, the secret formula disappears and all of Bikini Bottom goes into a terrible apocalypse. The Bikini Bottomites go crazy and they all believe that Spongebob and Plankton stole the secret formula. The two new teammates create a time machine to get the secret formula before it disappears and also go to some weird places along the way including a time paralex where they meet a time wizard named Bubbles who is a dolphin. The two later get to the time when the formula disappeared and take it back to the present day time. They then realized that it's a fake formula Plankton made when he was taking the real one and the Bikini Bottomites try to destroy Spongebob (Plankton runs away) Spongebob smells Krabby patties and so does everyone else so the Bikini Bottomites follow it (instead of destroying Spongebob) and they arrive at the bank of the surface.

Trivia

Technically a prequel to The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004), since it never mentions SpongeBob and Patrick getting the crown from Shell City and does not feature or mention The Krusty Krab 2. See more »

Goofs

When Burger Beard's ship first hits land, the wheels do not appear to be spinning on his ship, since the hubs are completely stationary. During the chase sequence, the hubs are spinning but at irregular speeds - sometimes slowly, sometimes faster. See more »

Mind Expanding
8 February 2015 | by nickspiropulosSee all my reviews

I'm almost 100% sure this movie was made to watch while tripping, given that for about 10 to 20 min of the movie you just sit there and ask yourself, "WTF going on?".

This is definitely a movie that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. If you're too good for the ridiculous humor that is SpongeBob then you should probably lock yourself in your house and keep your buzz kill personality with you.

The 3D visuals were surprisingly good. In fact I would say it's some of the best I've seen. I definitely recommend watching this movie in 3D.

Get up and go watch this movie and just let loose. You and your kids will love it. In fact you don't even need the kids, cause you'll love it. Life's too short to be boring! Don't let those critics who think they're too sophisticated keep you from seeing the movie because deep down inside we're all immature! ; )
