    Parents need to know that The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie: Sponge Out of Water stars the most famous talking sponge in popular culture. Like the Nickelodeon cartoon series on which it's based, the movie has occasional insult language ("jerk," "stupid") and exaggerated violence (basically everything Plankton does with weapons -- like guns and cannons -- and the threat of death to SpongeBob, who's offered as a sacrifice at one point). Some of the movie's humor will likely go over young kids' head (like the way everyone in "post-apocalyptic Bikini Bottom" wears Mad Max-like leather costumes, or when one of the gang accidentally lands on a sunbathing woman's back and she murmurs that it feels good), but kids will definitely get the bird poop and blowhole laser gags. SpongeBob isn't known for being educational, but the movie, like most of the shows, does stress the importance of teamwork and friendship.

    I could have done without the appearance of the “protectors of the universe” (aka dolphins), references to making sacrifices to “the sandwich gods” and Squidward’s vainglorious assertion that “I’m a god” but the jokes were for the most part genuinely funny. I did feel the amount of flesh—real, not animated—on display was a little much for a kids’ movie, but to be fair, they were at a beach. The 3D experience was underwhelming; my advice would be to go for 2D and put the difference toward popcorn. The story dances around addiction issues (what is in those Krabby Patties that makes everybody crave them so?) but there’s not much of a moral. This one is just for fun—and for the most part, fun is what it is.

    After 15 years and almost 200 Nickelodeon episodes packed with saltwater anarchy and crazy deep-ocean disasters, it would be fair to think that a porous pardner named SpongeBob might just be a little long in the loofah by now—making him a dried up peevish parazoan ready to yell at any snail or sea slug that might slither into his end of the ocean. But, nope, Sir SquarePants is just as guileless and smilingly hopeful as ever, even in the face of a patty-pilfering pirate and an ensuing aquatic apocalypse.

    despite my disappointment of finding SpongeBob: Sponge Out of Water to be lacking on the adult level, this movie does net some positive moral values for children. Characters learn how to work together and put differences aside. They also recognize it’s dangerous to judge someone without knowing all the facts. These messages may be reasons to consider taking this latest journey to Bikini Bottom—just don’t hold your breath in anticipation of the humor many of us “big fish” have come to enjoy from these characters.

    Our friends from Bikini Bottom are back in another deliriously silly story, so tender-hearted and cheery that there is no way to resist it. Plus, it has superheroes, a pirate played by Antonio Banderas, existential metaphysics, the guitarist from Guns ‘n’ Roses, and a time-traveling space dolphin with the stentorian tones of a classically trained Shakespearean actor. It will amuse newcomers and delight fans.

    The lovable invertebrate SpongeBob Square Pants hits the big screen again in the buoyant and sometimes frenetic The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water. But this time he tries a little too hard to make a splash.
