The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water / Reviews

Winning kids over with its cartoonishness, adults with its wittiness, and stoned college students with its absurdness, Sponge Out of Water is an animated Monty Python movie you can take the whole family to. With absolutely no interest in teaching morals or life lessons with a straight face, the film stays true to the essence of the Spongebob phenomenon: delivering pure laughs in every surreal, bonkers way it can.

At times there’s a genuine sense of daring to the film’s freewheeling anarchy, its refusal to stick to a central theme or impart any sort of lesson.

What it delivers is what it promises: a battery of deliciously daft, fast-firing, self-mocking, flavour-rich gags, flung with such zest you don't mind if they're disposable.

It isn’t just the sheer density of jokes that is impressive, but the diversity.

It’s amiable goofiness, delivered at an emphatic, feverish pitch.

The live action/CG stuff never satisfyingly jibes with the traditional nautical nonsense down below.

Over-familiar and the first half's pace is sea-sluggish but with inspired touches.
