I searched for a review/discussion thread on the SpongeBob SquarePants Movie but came up empty. I took my six-year-old to see it Friday night. Admittedly, I am already a big fan of the show (and animation in general), but I found this movie to be absolutely perfect!! It takes all of the best/wackiest elements of the TV show and turns them up to maximum!! In my opinion, there is not one slow part or gag that fails. I saw both the Beavis & Butthead and Powerpuff Girls movies at the theater when they were released as well, and both of them felt like they were just adding superficial stuff to stretch a 30-minute TV episode to theatrical length. Not so with the SpongeBob movie. I'm not sure of the actual running time, but it felt like a 30-minute TV episode!! I was never bored once. For some reason, this movie gives me a "Ren & Stimpy" vibe because the humor is so off-the-wall and zany. The "Goofy Goober" song had me laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. The animation quality has been kicked up slightly for the theatrical release, but it mostly looks like the show. The live-action sections were excellent as well. Plenty of "adult" humor and very little (if any) toilet humor unlike most kids' movies released today. Highly recommended for kids and adults of all ages.
