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.

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.

Any resemblance between this big screen debacle and the sweet-and-funny Nickelodeon cable show on which it's supposedly based is entirely coincidental.

Disappointingly damp.

As a movie, this is good TV.

If you are a non-parent and you're entertained by this, wow, good for you.

It may be aimed at children, but my inner child was screaming, "Get me out of here!"

This big-screen SpongeBob won't win over many new fans

There's nothing you wouldn't expect (with the possible exception of live-action Hasselhoff) and everything you would.
November 21, 2004
A cartoon sponge and starfish playing fisticuffs with a marauding biker on David Hasselhoff's live-action backside is the most asinine image I've ever seen at the movies.

Take the kids whether they want to go or not.
