Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: While less fluid and fresh than its 2004 predecessor, the new film displays enough nutty writing and sheer brio to confirm the stamina of its enduring and skillfully voiced characters. – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, Feb 6, 2015

Fresh: All of the strangely charming cartoony undersea nonsense of SpongeBob that's delighted kids and stoners for year comes to the surface in "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water." Prepare to giggle. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Feb 5, 2015

Fresh: Business as usual for the irrepressibly cheerful, pineapple-dwelling sea-creature. – Simon Abrams, Village Voice, Feb 11, 2015

Rotten: Maybe we shouldn't have expected too much from "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water." – Tom Russo, Boston Globe, Feb 5, 2015

Spngebob movie is awesome

I saw the SpongeBob Movie sponge out of water 3D and I loved it the first time I saw it and again and I still loved it it's a good movie so if you going to go see this movie see in 3-D is good it's a lot of fun !!!

Best. Movie. EVER!!!

It was amazing, and my stomach was hurting when we came in; this movie made me feel a whole lot better. One thing I noticed was, some of the scenes resembled episodes of Spongebob that I've seen (and by the way, I've seen pretty much every Spongebob episode ever). Also, I love how every character, when turned into a superhero, was like an Avenger from Marvel's Avengers. Mr. Krabs was Iron Man, and Sandy was the Black Widow…etc. I thought of these superheroes because of their looks, and/or superpowers. Think about it, and you'll figure out Plankton is the Incredible Hulk and more! I'm sure there are more Easter eggs in this movie, but overall, this was just a great movie, if you really want to laugh. I was so glad to see it. If you like Spongebob, this movie's for you!


This was a REALY good movie but it will never live up to the first, in fact this movie is more of its own thing than a sequel to the first movie.
