When I heard about the new Spongebob Squarepants movie, I was barely able to contain myself. The first movie appealed to all ages. I went to see the movie in early February, and may I tell you, it was disappointing. Here are a few problems I had with the new movie:The comedy was aimed mostly towards minorsOriginally, Spongebob Squarepants was aimed towards kids in college but was able to include humor that could bring a laugh out of most ages. In this movie, the humor was very bland and just not as clever as it had been in the past. There were a few jokes that made me chuckle, but there was never anything that made me burst out laughing.The CGI animationWhen watching the trailer, I was kinda feeling a bit iffy about the CGI animation but I was really looking forward to the movie. The animation was done very well, but it just didn’t feel like Spongebob; it seemed like a completely different cartoon. A majority of the film was actually 2D animation, so the trailers were a bit of false advertising since the CGI animation only took up maybe 1/4 of the movie.There were singing seagullsNeed I say more?Burger BeardIn the movie a pirate, Burger Beard (Antonio Banderas), steals the Krabby Patty Secret Formula and creates mayhem throughout Bikini Bottom. The issue that I have with this character is that he tries to act well. Throughout the early age of Spongebob, whenever an actor appeared in the cartoon, the creators tried to make the acting so bad that it was funny. This could be seen with the appearances of Patchy Pirate, David Hasslehoff, or Davy Jones who was featured in “Spongebob vs The Big One.” All I’m saying is that some of the effects just seemed as if the writers were trying too hard, and this kind of annoyed me.Though I disliked the movie, my sister loved it. The movie is filled with all different sorts of plots from time travel, betrayal, patty apocalypses, to super heroes. Plankton and Spongebob team up which is a completely new experience. The animation can get real trippy times. Overall, the movie was satisfactory. For those who have grown up with Spongebob, this movie may be a let down, but for the younger generation, the movie is a smash hit. I’ll give this movie a 2 ½ out of 5 stars. The creator, Stephen Hillenberg, is coming back to the show so we might get some more of that old Sponge we all know and love.
