“Iu0026#39;m a huge fan of u0026#39;SpongeBob SquarePants (1999-)u0026#39;; I absolutely love the first three seasons of the show and the first movie. Thatu0026#39;s why itu0026#39;s so hard for me to say that u0026#39;The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run (2020)u0026#39;, well, sucks. The movie has maybe one proper laugh in it, with only a few half-chuckles along the way, and its plot feels like a rehash of past narratives thatu0026#39;s padded with unnecessary scenes – such as an absolutely pointless, painfully extended stint in live-action land that seems to only have been included so that the director could smoke weed with Snoop Dogg – and often stops dead in its tracks to cram in some continuity-crunching advertisements for the upcoming u0026#39;Kamp Koralu0026#39; spin-off show. Itu0026#39;s a huge disappointment, to say the least. Even an extended Keanu Reeves cameo canu0026#39;t elevate the affair – though his appearances are certainly some of the flicku0026#39;s highlights. There are some visually distinct sequences (its 3D animation is generally well-achieved) and, as I mentioned, a few half-chuckles here and there, but the feature just isnu0026#39;t all that enjoyable overall. It also lacks any real messaging or narrative satisfaction. Ultimately, itu0026#39;s a shadow of its former self. The difference in quality between this and the first flick is almost inconceivable. 4/10”
