The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water Review


SpongeBob SquarePants has always been aimed much more at childish adults than actual children, and this deranged comical adventure is no exception. Youngsters may giggle at the relentless silliness, but it's the grown-ups who will enjoy the script's continual raucous mayhem, including a stream of innuendo that's genuinely hilarious. This film also manages to bridge the gap between the TV show's hand-drawn style and eye-catching 3D live-action digital animation as our heroes head above the surface for the first time.

It kicks off as usual under the sea in Bikini Bottom, just as the recipe for the town's addictive snack, the Krabby Patty, is stolen. Everyone thinks the villain has to be fast-food rival Plankton (Mr. Lawrence), but Krabby Burger cook SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) believes Plankton is innocent this time. As Bikini Bottom descends into a post-Krabby apocalypse, SpongeBob assembles his pals to set things right, including dimwitted starfish Patrick (Bill Fagerbakke), blustering boss Mr Krabs (Clancy Brown), the clueless Squidward (Rodger Bumpass) and the hyperactive squirrel Sandy (Carolyn Lawrence). On their quest, they get unexpected help from, yes, galactic guardian dolphin Bubbles (Matt Berry) to travel to dry land and confront the thief, an opportunistic pirate named Captain BurgerBeard (Antonio Banderas).

Everything about this film is so completely bonkers that we have little choice but to sit back and just go with it, especially as the screenwriters continually add random elements to get themselves out of various plot corners. For example, to take on BurgerBeard, the team manages to acquire superpowers that lead to a massive Avengers-style action-chase sequence. Not one moment makes even a bit of sense, and yet the film is so cheerful that we can't help but enjoy every random bit of knowing silliness. Even Banderas' hammy, over-the-top performance grows on us as it goes along.

Spongebob Fans Rejoice! New Spongebob Squarepants Movie Out Next Year. [Poster]

Spongebob Squarepants Tom Kenny Bill Fagerbakke Antonio Banderas Slash

The Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Sponge Out Of Water storyline is yet to be revealed, but with SpongeBob villain Plankton set to play a part, one can assume an evil plot will have to be foiled once again and given the film's title, it's safe to say that SpongeBob will face a case of land sickness as he journeys out of the water and onto firmer terrain. 

Just like the first film, SpongeBob Squarepants 2 will feature the same voice cast to portray the characters as the television show including Tom Kenny as SpongeBob and Bill Fagerbakke as Patrick Star. As might be expected with a potential blockbuster release, there will be a few famous names making an appearance as well, Antonio Banderas will play a pirate in both live action parts of the film as well as animated parts. Ex-Guns N Roses guitarist, Slash is also set to appear in the film, although his role has yet to be announced. Could a SpongeBob and Slash duet be on the cards?

The film will be directed and screen written by Paul Tibbitt, who was a writer for the television series from 1999 until 2004. He then became supervising producer for the show in 2005 as well as executive producer in 2007, both positions he still maintains. Tibbitt was also screenwriter and storyboard artist for the 2004 release of 'The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie', however this will be his first time as a director. Given how involved Tibbitt has been with the franchise over the years, fans should be confident he can pull off directing the film.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie Review

If you've never seen the Nickelodeon show SpongeBob SquarePants, you're probably wondering why you'd ever want to see a kiddie movie based on a kiddie network's TV show. But if you're curious enough about the SpongeBob hype to read this review, please allow me sell you on the virtues of this often clever and very funny movie based on an equally sharp and hip animated series.

For the uninitiated, SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) is a yellow sponge clothed in square pants that "lives in a pineapple under the sea," as the song states, in the middle of a town of fish, crabs, and other sea life called Bikini Bottom. In this 90-minute outing, our hero is glum that he's been passed over for the job of his dreams - manager of the new Krusty Krab 2 - because he's "just a kid." But he can't stay sad for long; the evil Plankton (Mr. Lawrence) has launched "Plan Z," which frames SB's boss Mr. Krab for the theft of King Neptune's (Jeffrey Tambor) crown.

Since the beginning of time mankind has posed the most difficult questions: "Is the Earth round or flat?" "Is there life after death?" "Why is junk food so tasty?"

But no question elicits quite the same response as: "Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?"

The answer, of course, is the star of Nickelodeon's enormously popular cartoon series "SpongeBob SquarePants," which enjoys nearly as many adult fans as it does children. After five years on television, the little sponge now hits the big screen with the aptly titled "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie."
