Yes, 4 stars. Complaints that anything here is "stupid" is precisely Spongebob's raison d'être. You're either with Squarepants in his joyful folly or you're Plankton screaming in terror at the saccharine innocence in Spongebob's brain and recoiling from his hysterical, unadulterated laugh.
It would've worked as a tv special episode, but it doesn't have enough strength to make me enjoy the movie as much as the cartoon series. And it's Antonio Banderas' lowest point of his career since Spy Kids. However, after so many attempts to poorly bring 2D characters to a 3D real world, this one looked very natural and well made.
This film has not sat with me well over time; it's the most un-"Spongebob" film/thing I've ever seen. It has a few good laughs (Bubbles is funny), but, paradoxically, it feels like it's taking after a Cartoon Network show like "Adventure Time" in being random and completely nonsensical, forgetting to be funny. That's a paradox because the creators of that show were influenced by the genius of early "Spongebob."
La historia que lleva la película es mala, me aburrió desde el principio hasta el final, lo único que podría rescatar seria el Soundtrack, Bob esponja ya perdio aquel toque que lo hizo ganar Premios.
La animación fue buena, pero se veía mal en el entorno.
Antonio Banderas left his ego and dignity back home when he decided to do this film, possibly and hopefully to please his daughter who was 19 at the time? Okay, it was the paycheck then, a huge check with a lot of zeros on it because he can't be THAT big a Spongebob fan can he? Kids will love some of the slapstick gags and stupidity and some adults too I guess, but I found my own brain overloading and exploding here.
"Oh no, what happened to Saturn... and to Jupiteaaa". That line by the hilarious Bubbles completely cracked me up. There certainly is some other genuinely funny stuff, but overall it doesn't honor the Spongebob spirit very well and is clearly a commercial compromise.
I never thought I'd see a sugargate sequence in a Spongebob production, yet here we are. I had a great time with this film. The animation was rad, weirdly diverse and the 3D-animated effects were strangely realistic. They're either live-action models or the best CGI lighting in history. I watched it stoned (as with everything...) and decided this might be Nickelodeon's first stoner feature. Didn't like it? Try drugs!
