(In theaters, February 2005) My total knowledge of Spongebob Squarepants being strictly limited to second-hand sources, I didn’t know what to expect from this film. This may explain why I enjoyed it so much: obviously aimed at kids, but with enough wackiness to appeal to older viewers, The Spongebob Squarepants Movie is a fine example of absurd comedy. I merely have to mention that the climax involves a fight set on the nearly-naked body of David Hasselhoff and a “I Wanna Rock” psychedelic music video freeing oppressed masses to give you an idea of the tone of the piece. Other things such as the insanely catchy “I’m a Goofy Goober” theme song, live-action sequences and saucy double-entendres aimed at everyone looking for them are just icing on the cake. Good, fun stuff. Fast-forward to the end of the credits for a last cute pirates gag.
