“Spongebob Squarepants: Sponge Out of Water” Synopsis

See below the full synopsis of “Spongebob Squarepants: Sponge Out of Water” as posted by CinemaBlend.com:

“The story follows after menacing pirate Burger Beard (Antonio Banderas) stole Bikini Bottom’s most prized possession – the secret recipe of Krusty Krab’s phenomenal Krabby Patties. It is then that the humble and whimsical town plunged into the apocalypse that it is up to Spongebob Squarepants (voiced by Tom Kenny) and his friends Patrick (Bill Fagerbakke), Squidward (Rodger Bumpass), and Sandy (Carolyn Lawrence) to bring it back and restore the peace and order in their beloved hometown. They even set aside their differences and asked the help of their nemesis Plankton (Mr. Lawrence) and ventured into the dry land in search for the recipe and come face to face with Burger Beard.”

“Spongebob Squarepants: Sponge Out of Water” Review

The movie was given a 73% rating in Rotten Tomatoes and 7/10 in IMDB. It is the kind of movie that you can expect to deliver a different level of nautical nonsense. As many critics would put it, fans of the narrative would really end up enjoying the one hour and 40 minute Nickelodeon original. However, they advised those who aren’t interested to just leave this film be to those who could take so much of the comical, nautical nonsense that Spongebob always brings.

The 3D version of Spongebob and his friends is a delight to watch on the big screen with the splash of colors and the cartooned fellas blending with the true to life aesthetics of the film. It’s very much obvious that director Paul Tibbett and screenplay writers Glenn Berger and Jonathan Abel went far in enhancing the special effects in bringing the small sized sea critters, making them big as the plot progressed to its climax.

As Screen Rant credited critic Sandy Schaefer would put it, “The SpongeBob Movie is essentially a kid-friendly stoner comedy, but also one that’s clever and inspired enough to keep SpongeBob fans entertained.”

That ends our review of Nickelodeon’s “Spongebob Squarepants: Sponge Out of Water.” Continue to keep your tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more information on upcoming films, popular celebrities, and ongoing TV shows.
