Moving from German Spiritual Acapella Rounds to… Spongebob Squarepants
Rented The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie off of Netflix, as I felt my pop culture knowledge needed a bit of updating. I’ve heard all about SpongeBob, but seeing as how I haven’t had cable in ages… I’ve never seen an episode.
Until last night. Hysterical, awesome, and I laughed a ton. Yes, it’s still a kids’ movie, but I’ve been feeling like a kid lately. I’m reminded a good deal of Ren and Stimpy, and seeing SpongeBob… the level of some of the humor in ths movie reminded me just how savvy kids really are. Funny stuff throughout, and David Hasselhoff comes in towards the tail end of the movie, parodying himself – it’s the veritable icing on the cake.
If you’re ever in the mood for something silly (or just want to feel like a kid again), rent this movie. With quotes like “You don’t need a license to drive a sandwich” and “I rode the Hasselhoff!” you really can’t go wrong.
