The result is an animated adventure that's funnier than Shark Tale and more charming than The Polar Express.

The delights of the movie lie in its zany characters, its goofy settings, and above all its surrealistic visual style.

Assuming that few members of SpongeBob's primary audience are reading this (or can read), all I can tell you is, the movie is likely to be more fun than you expect.
