The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
Director: Paul Tibbitt, Mike Mitchell
Cast: Tom Kenny, Antonio Banderas, Clancy Brown, Rodger Bumpass, Bill Fagerbakke, Carolyn Lawrence, Mr. Lawrence, Matt Berry
When the secret Krabby Patty formula disappers, life in Bikini Bottom falls into chaos. SpongeBob SquarePants teams up with his friends and enemies to restore normality. Like The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004), the second big screen adaptation of the long-running TV show throws its drawn characters in a live action setting, this time using computer animation. The title, poster and advertising strongly suggest that this is an adventure on dry land. It is, for about 20 minutes. For 75% of the time this is like a regular but extended episode, alternately silly, inventive, hyperactive, loud, and exhausting.
