„Especially for 90’s kids, one of the hallmark trademarks of adolescence was coming home from school and binge watching Nickelodeon and their plethora of sitcoms. It wasn’t until 1996, where Nickelodeon decided to expand their properties onto the silver screen with their debut feature Harriet the Spy. This resulted in a slew of successes, including the cult classic Good Burger, the Academy Award winning Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, and plenty more famed modern classics. Nickelodeon Movies was known for their risky children’s stories, where they weren’t afraid to shy away from the occasionally mature gag or even subplot. It wasn’t until 2011, after the release of Rango and The Adventures of Tintin, where the company gradually started falling apart. Just last year, they released Wonder Park, a literal direction-less flop that failed to amuse or even capture the child-like sensibilities of its modern audience.

Though there is still light at the end of the tunnel for the supposedly doomed company. Milking one of their most beloved properties more time, SpongeBob SquarePants returns to the silver screen exclusively in Canada for a limited pandemic engagement. One could argue all day if the very existence of this film is ethical or not, with the following death of the show’s creator Stephen Hillenburg and his executive producer credit. Though in all honesty, unlike most unnecessary continuations of supposedly dead properties, SpongeBob’s legacy is infinite. Sure it won’t have the same spark as the previous films or even early season episodes; though the same charm and general authentic appeal is still intact in this third flick. „
