Bromelaine Residences and Absorbency
As to the movie, it's essentially one long not particularly good Sponge Bob episode. The best episodes of Sponge Bob center on how he manages to screw up the Krusty Krab and drive Squidward nuts, yet the film itself has precious little Squidward in it, and Mr. Krabs is relegated to an icicle (for being set up by Plankton for a serious crime) for most of the movie. Plankton and his computer wife are pretty funny, but it's kind of dragging out a one-note joke for eighty plus minutes. The live action bit with David Hasselhof is cute, but wears thin quickly. For some reason this reminds me a bit of the first feature film based on McHale's Navy (I'll discount "...Joins The Air Force" and the more current film of that name, which of course had nothing to do with the classic sitcom). The feature film had to introduce outside stuff (Cluadine Longet and the whole New Caledonia bit) and drag the plot out as well (the bit with the horse could've easily fit into a single half hour show), not to mention giving short shrift to certain characters (Joe Flynn). Although of course we did get several "Oy Vey"s and "Mamma Mia"s from Yoshio Yoda, something which I find hysterical in these days of political correctness.
