Computer-Animated Comedy: An underwater sponge and his friends set out to rescue his pet snail from a vain King and his casino empire.

In the underwater world of Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob SquarePants (voice of TOM KENNY) is a happy fellow who loves his pet, Gary the Snail, has good friends in Patrick Star (voice of BILL FAGERBAKKE) and underwater bunny Sandy Cheeks (voice of CAROLYN LAWRENCE), and enjoys working at the Krusty Krab restaurant making Krabby Patties for owner Mr. Krabs (voice of CLANCY BROWN), while coworker Squidward Tentacles (voice of RODGER BUMPASS) sits around and does nothing but read.

Krabs' restaurant rival, Plankton (voice of MR. LAWRENCE), is once again desirous of stealing the formula for those Krabby Patties, but is accidentally thwarted by SpongeBob who doesn't even spot the copepod. If only Plankton had a way to deal with Spongebob. Enter King Poseidon (voice of MATT BERRY), the vain ruler of the not-so-lost Lost City of Atlantic City.

He's accustomed to using snail slime as his beauty regimen, but when those snails run out of juice, he has his right-hand man, Chancellor (voice of REGGIE WATTS), set forth a decree to find more. Plankton then kidnaps Gary, knowing that Spongebob will try to rescue him.

Which he does with the help of Patrick, Sandy, and her robot creation, Otto (voice of AWKWAFINA), while also getting guidance from Sage (KEANU REEVES) the sagebrush who warns them of perils along the way, including that presented by zombie leader El Diablo (DANNY TREJO). Facing that and uncertainty, Spongebob and his friends head for the Lost City of Atlantic City to rescue Gary.

If they're fans of the SpongeBob universe, they probably will.
For rude humor, some thematic elements, and mild language.

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!!!
