Did You Know?


The first two signal flags in the front of the Krusty Krab mean "Romeo" and "India" respectively while the last two mean "uniform" and "kilo". The middle flag has no meaning.


When spongebob and Patrick eat their first triple gooberberry sunrise, Patrick's Goober meal is gone, yet he never finished it.

User Review

It's SpongeBob, 'nuff said

Rating: 10/10

I didn't quite know what to expect when I walked into the theater to
watch the movie of one of my favorite cartoons. Nickelodeon has a
really nasty habit of "big-budgtizing" movies of their shows (changing
the look, etc.). However this is not the case with SpongeBob. Whew, one
less thing to worry about.

Next was the story. Could Steve Hillenburg live up to what had been
laid down by the series? Yes. Basically it's like watching a 1 1/2 hour
episode of SpongeBob (and who couldn't like that). Lot's of visual gags
and typical Sponge brainless-ness. I was quite impressed.

If you're a SpongeBob fan, you'll love this movie. If you're not, eh,
watch it anyways, it'll do you good ;-).
