I’ve never watched an entire SpongeBob episode from start to finish, but I’d seen enough clips to know I would be amused by the movie. Indeed, I was thoroughly entertained by this utterly silly, ridiculous and fun film.
SpongeBob and his best bud Patrick are on a rescue mission to retrieve King Neptune’s stolen crown. Their exuberant stupidity is a real hoot and I was pleasantly surprised by the number of laugh-out-loud moments their giddy adventures provided.
I found Guillermo del Toro’s take on the graphic novel anti-hero bordering on dull. The characters were interesting enough but the story didn’t have much life and just kind of plodded along by the numbers.
