Spongebob Squarepants (2004)

Rothe Blog Spongebob SquarepantsThree and a Half Stars

I wasn’t sure about this movie. Whether it was even going to be worth the drive to the cheap theaters some Tuesday night. But Christine and her girls love Spongebob, so they bought the movie and we got to watch it.

I liked it. I wouldn’t watch it over and over again, but I liked it. There is this peculiar feel to this type of animation. It isn’t classic at all, in fact every time I see an episode I am reminded of Ren and Stimpy with all of the over exaggerated emotions and their gritty bodily effects.

But there were some very funny lines, some were in previews, some you’ll just have to watch the movie to see. I liked the use of live motion blended in with the animation, it wasn’t clunky but fit the tone. I just didn’t really care for the scene with David Hasselhoff whisking Spongebob and Patrick away to the middle of the ocean.

If you are in a silly mood, and enjoy good animation (this was good animation, it wasn’t that highly stylized corner cutting crap that is out there today) then check this out. If you are the type of person that is easily offended by naked starfish butts, or have small children, I wouldn’t recommend this. I don’t think that the humor is so much “adult” as it really isn’t for children under the age of like 7-8.
