Plot

Taking place after the series, the film begins with a live action credit sequence, in which a group of pirates retrieve tickets to The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. The film then cuts to Bikini Bottom, where Mr. Krabs, the owner of popular fast food restaurant, the Krusty Krab, has a problem: a customer ordered a Krabby Patty with cheese and there was no cheese. Suddenly, SpongeBob SquarePants comes to the rescue. He has a brief chat with the customer, and with his briefcase full of Austin Powers-like gear, he takes out a pair of pliers and adds cheese, and the crisis is resolved. The whole scene reveals itself to be SpongeBob's dream. Meanwhile, Mr. Krabs is preparing to celebrate the grand opening of the "Krusty Krab 2", a second filiale of his restaurant. Hoping to become the new manager of the Krusty Krab 2, SpongeBob is completely convinced his name will be announced. He doesn't even take into account the fact that it may be someone else.

Meanwhile, Plankton - arch-nemesis and business rival of Mr. Krabs who constantly wants to steal Mr. Krabs' formula of the Krabby Patty, is planning his ultimate plot - the dreaded Plan Z. At the celebration, SpongeBob's co-worker, Squidward, is given the manager title, as Mr. Krabs tells a heartbroken SpongeBob that he is just a kid and is unable to handle the task. Meanwhile, Plankton arrives at the castle of King Neptune, who is prevented from declaring a ridiculous prison sentence to his intelligent teenage daughter Mindy. Neptune is then horrified to discover that his crown is missing, having been stolen by Plankton. Squidward Tentacles Squidward Johannsen Tentacles is a fictional character in the animated cartoon television show SpongeBob SquarePants. ...


SpongeBob arrives at Goofy Goober's Ice Cream Party Boat, a popular children's restaurant, to brood over his loss. His best friend Patrick arrives and joins him in a Triple Gooberberry Sunrise ice cream-eating spree, and SpongeBob experiences hangover-like symptoms the next morning. Meanwhile, Neptune arrives at the Krusty Krab after receiving false evidence that Mr. Krabs had stolen his crown. Krabs pleads innocent, and Neptune asks the crowd of onlookers if Krabs has a thieving nature. SpongeBob then arrives and insults Mr. Krabs out of sprite, but after hearing the prospect of Mr. Krabs being executed, Patrick agrees to travel to the dreaded Shell City (where Mr. Krabs has allegedly sold the crown) and return with it. Before departing, Mr. Krabs is frozen by Neptune's trident, and Mindy gives the trio a magical bag of winds to return home with. (This is a reference to the Odyssey.) Patrick Star is an animated character in the Nickelodeon animated series, SpongeBob SquarePants. ... For other uses, see Hangover (disambiguation). ... Look up Sprite in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... For other uses, see Odyssey (disambiguation). ...


With six days to retrieve the crown, SpongeBob and Patrick travel to a gas station next to the county line. They find that a hamburger-like vehicle, the Patty Wagon, has been stolen by a mobster. Later, they find it parked at the Tug Thug, a bar for tough, muscular fish. After being unable to obtain the car's key, they begin to blow bubbles, which is a sign of weakness by the rules of the gang. A fin-fight as to who blew the bubbles results, allowing them to steal the key amidst the confusion and depart. The following day, Squidward finds out about Plankton's plan and begins to tell on him by talking to King Neptune. Plankton begins controlling the minds of the townspeople (including Robert Deniro) through electronic bucket-shaped hats, disguised as free souvenir hats, ultimately taking over Bikini Bottom and re-naming it "Planktopolis." He also sends Dennis, a motorcycle-riding hitman, to eliminate SpongeBob and Patrick. Robert De Niro Robert De Niro, Jr. ... Look up Dennis in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


SpongeBob and Patrick are then chased by a large sea monster. Unable to pass through a monster-filled trench, SpongeBob gives up and accepts that he and Patrick are "just kids". However, Mindy arrives and gives them fake mustaches in the form of seaweed, convincing them that they are now men. They pass through the trench without fear (singing "Now That We're Men"), but are greeted on the other side by Dennis. He reveals that they are not really men before being stepped on by a human scuba diver, who takes SpongeBob and Patrick to the surface.


He takes them to Shell City, which is revealed to be a gift shop that sells novelties made out of fish. SpongeBob and Patrick are put through a lethal drying-out process, but before dying, they realise that they made it to the crown after all, and shed two tears of joy. Their tears short-circuit a wire (which is already underwater) and cause the sprinkler system to activate, reviving them and all the other sea creatures, who lead an assault against the diver. The duo takes the crown and flee, but Patrick, opening the bag of winds, doesn't hold tight enough, losing it. However, David Hasselhoff arrives and takes them across the ocean at a jet's speed. David Michael Hasselhoff (born July 17, 1952 in Baltimore, Maryland), nicknamed The Hoff, is an American actor who was best known for his lead roles on Knight Rider and Baywatch. ...


Dennis arrives, however, and almost crushes Patrick with his boot, but is hit by an upcoming catamaran. As Spongebob arrives over Bikini Bottom, Hasselhoff opens his pectoral muscles and shoots the heroes into Bikini Bottom, where Hasselhoff is burned by Neptune's trident, and is shown as charred, but otherwise unharmed. However, Plankton's hypnotized minions attack the heroes, and SpongeBob makes a speech about maturity before breaking out into a bizarre rock version of the Goofy Goober theme song (spoofing Twisted Sister's song "I Wanna Rock"); using his guitar's powers, SpongeBob destroys the mind-control buckets and frees the citizens from Plankton's rule, who is then sent to jail. It has been suggested that Catamaran History be merged into this article or section. ... Twisted Sister is an American hard rock band from New York City. ... I Wanna Rock is a song by Twisted Sister. ...


In the aftermath, Neptune reaches an understanding with his daughter, and then thanks SpongeBob and his friend. Finally, Squidward gives SpongeBob the title of manager, much to his delight.


During the end credits, however, pictures are shown of SpongeBob's job as manager, which wasn't what one might expect it would be (for example, he's seen mopping the floors, taking out the trash, and getting a "raise" from Mr. Krabs as Krabs holds out a single coin). SpongeBob still enjoys it all. Following the credits, a person in the theater forces the pirates to leave.

Trivia

  • The storyline of the film takes place after the series, making this the last part of the SpongeBob SquarePants storyline.
  • The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie website was hacked around the time the movie was released into theatres. If one explores Bikini Bottom on the main page, the ghostly letters "SB" appear in the bottom-left corner. If one clicks them, it takes them to the SpongeBlogger fansite, www.spongeblogger.com. The creator got into large amounts of trouble from hacking the website, but was forgiven seeing as he had done no serious harm. The link, however, was never removed and still remains there.
  • This film was originally planned to serve as the series finale of SpongeBob SquarePants, but in 2005, an unannounced Season 4 was produced due to the film.
  • The Replica HMS Bounty was used in the opening sequence in which the pirates are singing the SpongeBob SquarePants theme song.
  • Most of SpongeBob's friends didn't have major roles: Sandy Cheeks, Gary the Snail, and Mrs. Puff all had appearances but had very small roles and very little lines. Mr. Krabs was frozen for most of the film. Originally there was supposed to be a scene in the film including Sandy, but was cut for time. However it is included as a deleted scene on the DVD.
  • Uncensored, this was the first time a swear word is said on SpongeBob (The word "damning" is said by Neptune, the word jackass is said by Mr. Krabs). During Goofy Goober Rock Spongebob also says freaking'. Plankton, when he is speaking to Karen, says "Lord knows I've tried..." whereas religion is a taboo in most children's shows/websites unless they're religion geared.
  • In the SpongeBob episode Neptune's Spatula, King Neptune is displayed as a completely different character compared to the King Neptune of the film.
