P>If you are in the target three-to-nine-year-old age group and a fan of the "The SpongeBob SquarePants" television series, you'll probably like THE SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS MOVIE, essentially an extended version of the cartoon series. Colorful and silly, the movie looks and sounds just like every other movie from Nickelodeon. Only the sassy Rugrats, with their sharply written dialog, manage to stand out among the Nickelodeon offerings. But, if your kids love SpongeBob SquarePants and a weekly dose isn't enough for them, they'll probably be begging you to take them to the movie version.

The plot starts with SpongeBob SquarePants (voiced by Tom Kenny) lamenting that he wasn't chosen to be the manager of the Krusty Krab 2 restaurant, since his wall is filled with "Employee of the Month" awards from the original Krusty Krab. Other plot points include the stealing of the crown of King Neptune (voiced by Jeffrey Tambor) and the enslavement of restaurant patrons by mind control helmets designed by Plankton (voiced by Mr. Lawrence), the owner of a rival establishment to the Krusty Krab.

About as funny as the story ever gets is when someone asks SpongeBob SquarePants if he has a license to drive his hamburger car. "You don't need a license to drive a sandwich," he explains. THE SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS MOVIE is for fans only.

THE SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS MOVIE runs 1:30. It is rated PG for "some mild crude humor" and would be acceptable for all ages.

My nephew William, age 10, and my niece Liana, age 7, both liked the movie. William liked SpongeBob the best while the princess was his sister's favorite character. William's favorite scene was the David Hasselhoff cameo.
