The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

A Movie Reel

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie: 7 out of 10.

In actuality, this movie is a 5, but because it entertained me, my four year old and my one year old tonight, it's earned a bonus deuce.

I was introduced to SpongeBob in the hospital of all places.  At the close of 2003, James got pneumonia and I spent five nights sleeping in a cot at St. Joseph's Health Centre.  There was a little television in our room and video tapes that could be borrowed from the main nurse station.  There wasn't anything decent available, but there was a few episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants and when I wasn't catching a Leafs game or Canada's Junior team we watched SpongeBob.  After watching these episodes a dozen times, the little SOB grew on me.

The movie is pretty much an extended episode of the show.  By the hour mark, it starts to lose steam and sort of stumbles to the 90 minute mark by milking a David Hasselhoff cameo and an homage to Twisted Sister.  Still, we all enjoyed all 90 minutes and that's saying something.
