The questions that the religious right needs to ask are how and why they ever confused homosexuality with pedophilia. Not only does blurring this issue do gays a disservice, it lets SpongeBob get away with murder.

It's never afraid to break out of movie conventions and revert back to its series randomness and sheer Monty Python-esque humor that made it a hit with kids in the first place.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie takes on rather too much water during its extended feature-length submersion.

The Nickelodeon cartoon series about an oceanic sponge and his starfish sidekick washes onto the big screen with a tide of weak one-liners, exaggerated reactions, and vaguely nauseating gags.

There are a few laughs for adults in this film. There are a few clever cultural references. Mostly, however, I found it underwhelming.

The new feature film has some of the charm of the small-screen original, but it lacks the sustained goofiness of the series.

It's back to the drawing board for the TV show's creators, who have previously proven themselves capable of much better than this soggy and waterlogged miscalculation.

hile there is something a little familiar about the use of a journey narrative, and the hint of an uplifting message at the end of the film, the breezy insouciance, gleeful absurdity and wacky innocence of the series remains.

The story is so good-naturedly silly that while not exactly challenging, it should keep even the grown-ups at least smiling.

...asks the audience to endure three times as much frenetic potty humor, repetitive jokes and screechy voice acting as they are used to. The result is exhausting.

The film even manages to pull off a hilarious comic song ("Now that we're men!"), as well as providing new additions to playground vocabulary such as "Knuckleheaded McSpazatron".

SpongeBob is still SpongeBob, and his unflagging innocence and lack of irony make for a much-needed and much-appreciated hero.

Normally, when I'm watching it in my Scooby-Doo underwear eating my Cap'n Crunch cereal I don't even think of it being a kid's show but here I noticed it.
