We have taken some photos of "The SpongeBob SquarePants: The Movie". They represent actual movie quality.
The movie was released during the separation between SpongeBob's GoldenAge (seasons 2-3) and his suffering age(seasons 4 to present). Everyonenow wishes that the movie was the ending for SpongeBob because theconfusing, unfunny new episodes of SpongeBob totally soiled his name.The film is enjoyable yet it isn't perfect, unlike Seasons 2 to 3 whichwere perfect and enjoyable. SpongeBob's desire to be the Krusty Krab 2Manager is an extremely large plot element but the audience cannotrelate to his desires since it is hardly explained out. The film doeshowever do better in explaining out the plot with SpongeBob and Patrickgoing to Shell City in order to stop Plankton. However, Plankton is anextremely average villain aiming to claim world domination and thisdoesn't make the film remarkable enough. These are the main weaknessesof the film. Still, the film is enjoyable, especially for the youngkids who have strongly been fans of the series.
This review is from: The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie (Widescreen Edition) (DVD) I got this for my dad for Christmas because he loves spongebob, i guess some of us never out grow our child hood, but when I got this, it came a day later than it said and it didn't even come with the case like the discription said it would come in. it came in an old cd case that looked like it came from the dollar store. no bubble wrapping to keep the dvd safe at all, 0 protection so that nothing would happen to it either. Thank God the dvd still works, but if you want this product, get it from someone other then where i got it unless u want a dvd that has a high risk of getting broken before it gets to your home.
My two sons adore SpongeBob and they are the reason we bought this movie. We did not go see this while it was in theaters because I'm not such a big fan of the little yellow guy that I wanted to pay movie theater prices to take my boys to see the movie, but the television show does make me smile a lot of the time so we thought we'd pick it up once it was out on DVD. Of course my sons think the movie is great and they would give it a much higher rating, but my biggest complaint and the reason for only 3 stars is that the movie was just too long and the laughs were forced- a 30 minute cartoon is the perfect length for SpongeBob, 87 minutes is really pushing it. The movie did have some funny scenes in it, but it also had some parts I thought were just dumb- ie, the David Hasslehoff scenes were amusing for just a second or two and then they quickly became annoying to me. Also, I didn't really like the voice of Princess Mindy- it wasn't animated enough for a SpongeBob cartoon character, and was kind of bland and boring. I'm middle of the road as far a recommending this movie simply because my kids have really been enjoying it so I'd say even if you are a SpongeBob fan rent it first then decide if you want to own it.
I love the show, and most people who saw the movie and loved the show,didn't like the movie as much. That is because of these reasons: 1) Ithas the plankton story which has been done on the show a billion timesand it had seemed they took a break.2) Because it is different by it being a road movie. But, that's partof the magic.I had been told numerous times that the movie wasn't any good and ishouldn't ever watch it, but my little sister rented it and so Idecided to watch it. I thought it was hilarious and was so well done.It has that look like it's still on the big screen, only it's on yourTV.I did want I normal episode-like movie, like a story a lot like theepisodes just longer, or like a bunch of episodes put together.Not like taking an already-made episode, but new ones.Yet, this is still a really good movie. Maybe if they made a sequellike that...hmmm....--J.AchE--
I was hoping for a huge adventure filled with laughter, I didn't wantto be disappointed, I didn't want Spongebob coming out dry.I definitely wasn't a little bit disappointed, I was amazed! This wascertainly Spongebob style for sure. Everything about it was just what iexpected it to be, and better.If your a fan, even like it a little bit, you must see this movie. Ifyou haven't seen Spongebob Squarepants on TV then you should rent thisout on DVD at least or just catch it on Nickelodeon.All this hype on this little sponge is truly amazing. This movie mightbe a little weird and hyper and crazy but it's absolutely excellent,but that's my opinion.Spongebob has made his first movie and it's a good one, go see it.
Spongebob Squarepants is probably one of the most popular cartoons ontelevision right now, for many ages. This movie is definitely not adisappointment to big fans and even people who aren't madly in lovewith the show will enjoy this one. It is comical and Spongebob andPatrick are hilarious, lovable and dopey. This film is about how KingNeptune's crown was stolen by the evil Plankton and he will kill Mr.Krabs if he doesn't it back. Spongebob and his best buddy Patrick mustleave their hometown of Bikini Bottom and go to Shell City so they canretrieve the crown. On the way, they see many strange things, butyou'll love as they do the goofy things like they do on the show. TheSpongebob Squarepants Movie was quite funny, any age can have fun withit.
i expected this movie to be terrible, but might as well see it. I was proved wrong. My favorite part has to be the scene at goofy goober's.FINAL THOUGHT - buy, see, rent, steal,or borrow this movie
This review is from: The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (Two Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Blu-ray) Strong HD transfer + all the extras the DVD had = An instant buy. I owned the DVD of this film and there's a nice improvement when watching on a large HD screen. The only caveat here is some of the special features are not converted to HD. But, rather are in SD. This is common practice though for older releases, so it didn't surprise me. And as far as I know you're getting all of the special features you got on the old release. So, you're not losing anything. Even better: for families, this includes a DVD copy of the film. So, if you have a room in your house that doesn't have bluray, you can still enjoy. A solid deal and a must buy for fans of the film.
As a 40-something animation freak who still thinks Looney Tunes are the greatest, I somehow ignored SpongeBob SquarePants until I got my hands on this movie. Now, I think these just might be the greatest cartoon characters since Bugs, Daffy and company. The movie's different from the TV cartoons, as I'd learn after seeing a few of the latter, but the whole package is unique, colorful, imaginative and laugh-out-loud funny. Unlike the wacky sketches that make up the TV version, the movie brings SpongeBob and Patrick (Squidward's relatively quiet here) out of Bikini Bottom and on the road to someplace called "Shell City", where no sea creature ever gets out alive. They have to recover King Neptune's crown, which the evil Plankton has stolen- and pinned the blame on a now-frozen Mr. Krabs. See SpongeBob cry his eyes out and get drunk on ice cream cocktails! See Plankton put Chum Buckets on everyone's head and electrocute them into zombies! See Shell City- a beach knick-knack shop- and watch what happens when a crying SpongeBob lets his tears hit the light bulbs (fantastic sequence)! These and more imaginative bits make up the fast-moving adventure (although, as some have noted, the rock n'roll climax is a bit lame), an expanded- not weakened- take on the original TV cartoon concept. Even David Hasselhoff, who swims the boys back home, looks like he's really enjoying himself instead of playing the surfing pretty boy. All the regular characters and voice cast are joined by pompous, balding Jeffrey Tambor as pompous, balding mer-man King Neptune; the gifted young Scarlett Johansson as his kindly crown princess daughter, Mindy the Mermaid; a growling Alec Baldwin as the biker hit-man Dennis; and, as noted, David Hasselhoff in both human and 15-foot model form. They're all introduced, along with creator/director Stephen Hillenberg, on one of several featurettes included; my favorite voices are Tom Kenny (SpongeBob) among regulars and Johansson among the guests. There's one great extra here, which is also a reminder that Hillenberg is also a trained oceanographer. He's part of a film with none other than Jean-Michel Cousteau, who initially asks (in his thick Gallic accent) "we have a new species of sponge called- Bob Square Pants?" (Too funny?) Then, Cousteau shows off the real aquatic counterparts to the animated characters. It's a treat to see genuine sponges, squids, sea stars (not "starfish", thank you), and even the rare frog fish (that's the thing which almost devours SpongeBob and Patrick after offering them a phony ice cream cone). If you haven't seen a Cousteau film in a while- or if you're a kid and have never seen one- you'll get a kick out of this. "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie" is the real "Life Aquatic", and a lot funnier- and less pretentious- than that pompous Bill Murray vehicle. Now, I'm ready to plunge into the TV/DVD compilations!
sorry all you sensible adults but you have no idea about trueentertainment! this movie rules! its so so so so so funny! on countlessparts of the movie the film audience was erupting in laughter.although, with me being a 13 year old immature kid, beware of thoselittle 5 year old also going to watch the film........ sponge-bobblinks its HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! and some baby cries, so if you want to seethis film in all its true glory get the VHS or DVD of the movie.the plot, to cut a long story short, Mr Krabs, a crustatiouscheapskate, gets frozen for being framed by plankton, the tiny evilgenius wannabe, for stealing king Neptune's crown. so up stepsdepressed sponge-bob, still disappointed about being turned down formanager of the new krusty krab 2 restaurant. he goes off with dimwittedpal Patrick to get back the crown in the dreaded shell city, feared byall sea-life. can he do it? and save Mr krabs in time? watch this moviefor endless laughs! take my word for it! 8/10
This review is from: The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (Amazon Instant Video) I wish i could rate this movie a five but i didn't stay interested in this movie. It is funny, has a great message for little ones (never give up no matter how big things may seem). A good movie all together. It has a few fanny shots and shortless star fish (nothing i would want my child to see).
Okay, I admit it! I'm a big fan of SpongeBob SquarePants TV-series. Andwhen the movie came out, I was more than suspicious. Most movies thathave been made out of TV-series have been big disappointments. But Ican assure you, this one is not.If you have ever seen an episode of SpongeBob and liked it, you'll mostprobably enjoy this film. Even though the movie is mainly directed tokids, as is the TV-series, it will definitely keep adults interestedjust as well.Something I especially love in this movie are the characters. In theirown way, they're all fun and original. The voice actors do a brilliantjob in bringing the characters of Bikini Bottom to life. All the voicesfit perfectly and make the movie even funnier! Watching SpongeBobSquarePants the Movie is like watching a long episode of the TV show.And I believe that's just the way we like it! I was scared they weregoing to make some kind of weird changes to make it more appealing to awider audience, but I'm glad they kept the spirit of the show.If you have doubts about whether to see this movie, take my advice; gosee it, now!
I have to admit that I had doubts going into this movie. I had seen afew of the TV episodes which had some funny bits now and then, buthardly anything to make it memorable.The movie is a bit like the TV show, except with the craziness turnedway up! I myself and the 4 others watching together consisted of an agerange of 19 to 30. It didn't take long before we were all laughing.This movie is great in that it's clean for children, yet still hasgreat silliness that even adults will enjoy. The humor factor in thismovie definitely gets a high 9 out of 10. There were a few momentswhere we all laughing uncontrollably and repeating phrases because theywere so funny. Even hours after the movie, we were still commenting onsome of the funniest parts, and grabbing more laughs as we went along.I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone. Well, at leastanyone older than 4, kids younger than that will most likely miss a lotof the humor. I can honestly say, I thoroughly enjoyed this movieexperience and really would be happy watching it again.
People may say this sucked or it wasn't living up to the Spongebobname. But i thought it was rather funny and it was fun to watch, thebeginning you think "ok are they gonna do anything YET?" but later itgets farther into the journey and it shows Spongebob maturing. He'swilling to risk getting captured or being ridiculed by a couple strangecharacters to help his boss Mr. Krabs. My cousins loved it and so didI, the many adventures in this movie are zany, humorous, adventurousand all around enjoyable to watch. People who said this movie suckedwasn't there ONE good thing you liked about this film? oh well, itmaybe not Shrek or Finding Nemo but it deserves more credit and thewriters and crew deserve more praise for their work thannegativity.This movie's one for the whole family,people who say it's awaste. It's not that bad, it came up with a lot of awesome things,whatmore do you want?
The Spongebob Squarepants Movie is the greatest animated movie of alltime! It's better than all of it's television episodes combined! TomKenny is hilarious in this film, as is everyone else. Squidward finallyseems to have a sense of humor in this movie. Spongebob and Patrick arefunnier than ever in the movie, and it just gets funnier as it goes onlater in the movie. This is the funniest and best animated movie evermade. I still can't believe it took five years to finally make a movieout of the Spongebob Squarepants franchise. I thought it'd take morelike two...or one.I was always a fan of the Spongebob Squarepants television show onNickelodeon. Ever since the first episode, Help Wanted, I wascaptivated by it. It was so heartwarming and funny. I love SpongebobSquarepants! Even though he doesn't exist, I'm very sorry and sad tosay, he is the funnies and cutest creature of the sea! The SpongebobSquarepants Movie is a totally reasonable rating of 10 out of 10!Original MPAA rating: PG: Some Mild Crude HumorMy MPAA rating: PG: Some Mild Crude Humor and DialogueMy Canadian Rating: G
First off, I took my 5 and 7-year-old daughters to see this. Of course, being a 39-year-old kid at heart, I love Spongebob as well and I had to go see this in the theatres.It was excellent and this DVD is just as great. To make a long story short, Spongebob and Patrick have to go and find Neptune's crown, which was stolen by the nefarious Plankton and sold to someone who lives in a place called Shell City.The overall story follows Spongebob and Patrick's journey which proves one thing: even though Spongebob and Patrick are kids at heart and everyone looks at them that way, they prove that even with a child's inner soul, a person can overcome various obstacles and prove their worth. It's basically a coming-of-age for Spongebob and Patrick.In this case, Spongebob and Patrick show that they can make it to Shell City and recover the crown. On the way, they have to endure torture from a "biker bar" by not singing the "Goofy Goober" song which would make anybody with a child's soul break out in song (well, in the movie at least!) as well as enduring a giant frog fish that tempts them with an old lady selling ice cream. They also have to contend with Dennis, a bounty hunter hired by Plankton to take our heros out, as well as the dreaded Cyclops. The movie is hilarious and has so many jokes for the adult and child in all of us and none of it is really so bad that it isn't appropriate for kids. The special features have interviews with the creator, Stephen Hillenburg, as well as the people who provide the voices. It was amazing to see who did the voices of everyone. I was surprised by the amount of star talent that provide the voices to the TV series and the movie. For example:Clancy Brown - Victor Kruger/The Kurgan from the first Highlander movie does Mr. KrabsBill Fagerbakke - He does the voice of Patrick Star. He played Tom Cullen in the TV miniseries The Stand, and played Michael 'Dauber' Dybinski on the TV Series Coach.Alec Baldwin does the voice of Dennis, the bounty hunterThe special features on the disc include a 20-minute featurette interviewing Stephen Hillenburg and many of the voice talents. It goes over how Mr. Hillenburg came about creating Spongebob when he was scuba diving one day.There are a few other special features, including one where Hillenburg talks with Jean Michel Cousteau on life in the sea and the different forms of life that Hillenburg used as characters in Spongebob. It's funny and informative that even kids should enjoy it, learning about the sea life that is prevalant in our world and how it needs to be saved.Overall, this movie is enjoyable. At times, it's not as funny as the TV series, but it's still enjoyable to watch and have a good time.
Not to say it was terrible. It wasn't. It was really quite amusing,even hysterical at times. SBM was suitably nonsensical from beginningto end, with only a few jokes falling flat. I would personally haveliked to see Squidward and Sandy in larger roles to stay in line withthe show. My little siblings loved it, as seemingly did every kid inthe theatre. It was the adults that were with me that squirmed a bit.The "underlying" themes began to get a bit obnoxious, even to peoplewho had no prior experience with spongebob, such as my dad. Funniestwas my his comment as we were leaving the theatre "I have a newfoundrespect for gay cartoon characters."
SpongeBob is a funny movie in its own quirky, original way. If you're a fan of the TV show, then you will definitely enjoy the movie. This movie is not exactly for everyone though. If you have never heard or seen SpongeBob before and if you hate all things that are silly, goofy, juvenile, and immature then this is not for you.Oh by the way, good luck after the movie trying to keep your kid from singing, "I'm ready, promotion! I'm ready, promotion! I'm ready, promotion!"
I will first point out that although I am a 40-something parent, I loveSpongeBob and many other contemporary cartoons--maybe even more than mykids. So, while I am technically an adult, I think I am still a decentjudge of cartoons.I had extremely low expectations for this film even before the moviereviewers told us that this was, at best, a mediocre film. That'sbecause there is a history of cartoons being stretched into full-lengthfilms with less than spectacular results--the best example I can thinkof off the top of my head is the Powerpuff Girls movie. I think it'sbecause the fundamental formula that made them good shows is upset whenit is stretched to full-length. Whereas 15 to 30 minutes of action andlaughs can be sustained, with about 90 minutes there is noticeablepadding and lulls. This is definitely true of the SponeBob movie aswell. The edginess of the humor is, at times, blunted and replaced withpoignant moments--a death sentence to cartoons! Fortunately, this onlyoccurs sporadically and some of the more "schmaltzy" moments arepunctuated by laughs, but even still, people love SpongeBob because ofthe laughs and not for deeper meaning.Apart from these unwelcome moments, the film also suffers some from thecontinual mention of the "Goofy Goober". This is definitely NOT fromthe TV series and just wasn't all that funny the first few times theymentioned it (but I DO want one of the hats). Also, the very endfeaturing SpongeBob resorting to a re-worded Twisted Sister anthem tosomehow try to save the day just seems stupid and anticlimactic.So what worked? Well, in general, there were less laughs than the showbut still some good laughs. Also, while I expected the cameo to stink,I liked David Hasselhoff's silly and self-deprecating segment in thefilm. Unlike the dull cameos from THE MUPPET MOVIE and other kids'toons, this one worked and fortunately was the only cameo in the film.The bottom line is it is a cute and enjoyable but not especiallymemorable film. For die-hard fans, it's well worth seeing but for thoseNOT familiar with the Sponge, try the show first--you might think thatthe show is about the same quality as the movie, which it certainly isnot.
Short animation always struggles to become feature length films. Sometimes it should just be avoided. Spongebob barely succeeds. If you are like me, a part of the cult of Bob, than you will love the new material. If you are expecting a brilliant fantasia animation move, well, er, Goofy Goober!
