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.

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.
