    Summary: This movie was so messed up… but I liked it anyway. 70/100 (B-)

    Even though it's not even close to the awesomeness of the first movie, still a good movie. The animation was great and the jokes were funny enough. The whole audience was dying of laughter! There were a lot of strange and messed up moments in the movie, there was also a reference to "The Shining" and I was like: What the hell am I seeing? Anyway, this movie is anything but boring. I couldn't take my eyes of the screen, I was so entertained the whole running time. The first SpongeBob movie was already surreal and weird, this one… *sigh* has crossed the line.

    The 3D was incredible, well done and eye-popping. There's a great action sequence near the end of the movie with the pirate involved (performed by Antonio Banderas), and it was so damn funny and fast-paced. On the downside, some repetitive jokes become tiresome as the running time goes, the above-water stuff was way too short and well… actually the whole movie was very short to me, I don't know why, this movie should be longer! Again, the whole above-water stuff that you can see in the trailer was actually 20% of the movie, seriously WTF, I wanted more.

    I left the theater a bit unsatisfied. I felt like I just watched a movie that's 50 minutes long. Also, another of my issues was the ending, the songs in the ending were unnecessary and a little bit annoying. In addition, another issue was the villain. Antonio Banderas was great, but his character is not very well developed, he was a quite uninteresting villain. Leaving aside its flaws, I noticed one thing, the editing is really well done and even though it has some messed up moments the movie is never confusing because its premise is so short and easy to follow.

    The editing makes the whole film more dynamic and easy to understand. So, in conclusion this SpongeBob movie is not even close to the 2004 film, but it has enough visuals and clever gags to satisfy the audience in general. The above-water sequences are so damn enjoyable, the 3D looks fantastic and there are a lot of moments in the movie that are so damn surreal and messed up! Think of an animated version of Interstellar. Also, I don't want to spoil it, but I'm just gonna say that first scene with the dolphin was so strange.

    I'm pretty sure that a lot of people will dislike this film, mainly because of the ending, some annoying songs, the strangely uncomfortable moments and the shortness of the film. But to me, it is not a bad movie at all. I highly recommend it, especially if you're fan of the TV show. If you're going to see it, you must see it in 3D and on a huge screen. It is a pretty good spectacle. It is great that the movie took advantage of its 3D format, it looked great. Also, do not forget to see Squidward's dancing in the end credits, it will remind you to the old times. (B-)

    Well, it was a night like any other. Except I'd just taken mushrooms for the first time and I was tripping my goddamn balls off!

    And as I sat there in the most comfortable cushion seats of the theater gazing in to the infinite humor of youthful cartoons what I realized was that I was about to discover the meaning of life.

    A yellow sponge and a red sea-star traveling trough space and time accompanied by joy. And Ye pirates that screamed ahoy! From surreal imagination kittens to epic rap battles this movie made life immortal.

    That my friend, was the last time I ever did try mushrooms, I can't say I regret it though. I mean, it is important to broaden your horizons.

    How else would've learned to live amongst the grizzlies? But hey, that's a story for another night.

    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! ; )
