Review of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

What would happen if suddenly there were no more Crabby Patties?

WHAT NO CRABBY PATTIES?!?!

Now that I've caught your attention, let me tell you a little story about what happens when Bikini Bottom runs out of the one beloved thing that the entire town can count on. Coming together, one brave and unexpected team comes together to do everything they can to right this wrong.


SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of the Water Movie Review

Overview 
Nickelodeon has brought SpongeBob fans everywhere a brand new look into their favorite sponge in the newest movie: The SpongeBob Movie: Out of Water. In the beginning of the film we see this mysterious pirate (Antonia Bandares) on a treasure hunt to find a special book hidden on an island. We only meet him for a brief moment where he gets back to his ship and sets sail for the mainland.

Much like the beloved cartoon featured on Nick, viewers of all ages can get a glimpse of the evil Plankton trying to steal the secret formula from the Krabby Patty. Plankton who is normally foiled by something during his schemes finds himself that much closer to the secret recipe in the beginning of the film.


With the brilliant idea of changing the recipe out with a fake, he finds himself in a battle with SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) trying to take the formula from his hands. Unfortunately, while in the middle of a tug of war, the bottle vanished out of nowhere without explanation. While the formula is gone Bikini Bottom turns into an apocalypse because the beloved crabby patty recipe is nowhere to be found and nobody knows the formula by heart. Even SpongeBob, who makes the recipe every day can’t seem to recall the recipe. 

The loss of the formula puts Bikini Bottom into an apocalypse. With this SpongeBob is blamed and so is Plankton. The entire town has lost themselves because they cannot have their Krabby patty. Having to form a Team or a T-ahm (as Plankton cannot say the word team) SpongeBob and Plankton find themselves working on a way to bring back the formula and save Bikini Bottom, including going back in time. 



Without giving away the twist, I can share that this unlikely duo becomes a group when SpongeBob finds a clue. With the help of the group and some special friends, they set off on an adventure out of the water, giving the film a live action appeal with some 3D animations.

Review


Overall, I really enjoyed this movie. SpongeBob has always been silly and a fun choice for my family and I to watch. Not to mention kids of all ages everywhere can find themselves loving (or hating) this movie. For me, I enjoyed it to my very core because well, I love SpongeBob, he’s cool. I love Patrick because he’s a big dope, but has a heart of gold. The rest of the characters have their own loveable traits and can all be equally liked among fans.


My favorite parts were definitely when Plankton got a look into SpongeBob’s brain and found he was dealing with nothing but happy cheerful things. It reminded me a little bit of Carebears. The second part would definitely be when they traveled onto the dry land and we got a glimpse of these characters outside of their element with a little extravagance.




All in all as I told my friend I would definitely go see this again and I’m already waiting for it to come on DVD because I liked it so much. Don’t believe me? Look at what I wore to the movie when we went and saw it!



   
Lastly, I can say at the end of the film of course I found myself singing along with the SpongeBob Squarepants theme song and I knew every word even after all these years. With that, I must say; Are you ready kids?

♪ OHHHH! Who lives in a Pineapple under the sea?
Spongebob Squarepants!
Absorbent and yellow and porous is he
Spongebob Squarepants!
If nautical nonsense be something you wish
 Spongebob Squarepants!
Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish
 Spongebob Squarepants!
 READY?
Spongebob Squarepants!
Spongebob Squarepants!
Spongebob Squarepants!
SPONGEBOB SQUAREPAAAAANTS! 

I bet you just sang that, didn't you? 
(Don't Worry, I did too)


Did you see the film? What did you like or dislike about it?

  10. We saw this one. My son thought it went way too fast... I told him that's because he was so engrossed in it, and he was. My favorite part.. the birds w/the 3D glasses telling Antonio Banderas, 'That's what you get' hhaha. I wonder if that was the same guy who voices one of the Uncle Grandpa characters.

  13. I was supposed to see the film but I missed the screening due to a clashing event. I love the mix between 3-d and real life in the film. That must be fun for the kids I remeber when they made cartoon for my generation with 2D and real life people. So fun!

  24. I'm in the "strongly dislike" Spongebob category. Thankfully, my kids have not shown any interest in seeing this movie. I'm sure we will see it at some point when it is on Netflix or something. I'm happy to hear they did it justice though.

  25. I personally would never see this kind of movie. I used to like spongebob as a kid, but now I find him so annoying! I would take kids to see it though!

  26. Our son is new to sitting in a theater for 2 hours. He's only seen a few animated films so I'll see if he has any interest in seeing Sponge Bob.
