We all know who lives in a pineapple under the sea, but in his second big-screen film, SpongeBob comes to our world in pursuit of the Krabby Patty secret formula. In “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water,” the future of Bikini Bottom is at stake when the secret formula goes missing.

The movie opens with a taste of reality, a pirate named Burger Beard (Antonio Banderas) retrieving a mysterious book on SpongeBob’s adventures from a desert island. With the book, the pirate steals the Krabby Patty secret formula. Recovering the irreplaceable treasure will require SpongeBob, voiced by Tom Kenny, to go above sea level and save the day.

The seemingly impossible mission spawns an unlikely alliance between SpongeBob and Plankton, voiced by Doug Lawrence, whose plan was to steal the Krabby recipe. To save Bikini Bottom from an underwater meltdown due to deprivation of Krabby Patties, SpongeBob and Plankton travel back in time to before the secret formula disappeared.

Their plan backfires and they realize the secret formula is in the hands of Burger Beard. SpongeBob, Plankton, and friends step onto land for the first time in order to retrieve the secret formula from Burger Beard.

Director Paul Tibet and screenwriters Glenn Berger and Jonathan Aibel added more to the fun of the film with their bigger budget and special 3-D effects. The cartoon world and reality collide, creating a computer-generated, 3-D world, turning the characters from tiny cartoons to superheroes.

The spirit of the series remains true throughout the film. It’s loaded with random jokes, references to the show, a superhero segment, and a fun number sung by SpongeBob and Plankton. “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water” will keep fans of the show, children and adults alike, laughing throughout.
