The two new teammates create a time machine to get the secret formula before it disappears and also go to some weird places along the way including a time paralex where they meet a time wizard named Bubbles who is a dolphin. The two later get to the time when the formula disappeared and take it back to the present day time. They then realized that it's a fake formula Plankton made when he was taking the real one and the Bikini Bottomites try to destroy Spongebob (Plankton runs away) Spongebob smells Krabby patties and so does everyone else so the Bikini Bottomites follow it (instead of destroying Spongebob) and they arrive at the bank of the surface.

I'm almost 100% sure this movie was made to watch while tripping, given that for about 10 to 20 min of the movie you just sit there and ask yourself, "WTF going on?".

This is definitely a movie that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. If you're too good for the ridiculous humor that is SpongeBob then you should probably lock yourself in your house and keep your buzz kill personality with you.

The 3D visuals were surprisingly good. In fact I would say it's some of the best I've seen. I definitely recommend watching this movie in 3D.

Get up and go watch this movie and just let loose. You and your kids will love it. In fact you don't even need the kids, cause you'll love it. Life's too short to be boring! Don't let those critics who think they're too sophisticated keep you from seeing the movie because deep down inside we're all immature! ; )
