QUICK TAKE:
Animated Action: SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends must rise to the surface and combat a villain who has stolen the beloved Krabby Patty formula.
PLOT:
On a remote island, a pirate named Burger-Beard (ANTONIO BANDERAS) risks life and limb to obtain a magic book that chronicles the undersea town of Bikini Bottom, which is centered around a eatery called the Krusty Krab where everyone return again and again to eat the restaurant's signature sandwich, the Krabby Patty. For years, the owner, Mr. Krabs (voice of CLANCY BROWN), has battled with rival restaurateur, Planton (voice of MR LAWRENCE), who has tried every way he knows to obtain the secret Krabby Patty formula.

During one particularly daring heist, Plankton is able to thwart Mr. Krabs' top employees, the good-hearted short-order cook SpongeBob SquarePants (voice of TOM KENNY), and the surly Squidward Tentacles (voice of RODGER BUMPASS) and finally swipe the formula. But just as quick as he gets it, it magically disappears into thin air.

The town believes Plankton and SpongeBob are in cahoots, and Bikini Bottom is thrown into chaos. What's really happened is that Burger-Beard has used the power of the book to nab the formula so he can open the most successful food truck in a nearby resort town above water. It's up to SpongeBob, Plankton, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and their friends, the dim-witted Patrick Star (voice of BILL FAGERBAKKE) and the adventurous squirrel, Sandy Cheeks (voice of CAROLYN LAWRENCE), to reacquire the formula and return Bikini Bottom to order.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes, indeed. "SpongeBob" is still one of the most popular animated TV shows going.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For mild action and rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
