Antonio Banderas Stars in the $285 Million Worldwide Hit, Available Now!!
Is the weekend here yet? With the crazy past two weeks I have had, I can sure use a break this upcoming. Both Savannah and Bella have been hit with sinus infections, allergies, cold and even conjunctivitis, all of which have caused them to have restless nights, long days where they feel miserable, but don't want to lay down, and a mommy who has had about 3 days sleeps in a 2 week time span. I feel like I have a newborn in the house again, with the up all nights and long days. Oh, how I can't wait for these colds and viruses to run their course and I have my two little happy girls back.
But, with sick days comes a lot of snuggle time on the couch, watching movies. And, thankfully I had a stack of movies to have to review, so this kept the girls and I busy and entertained. :-) From animated movies to Nick Jr. shows on DVD and even a Hallmark Channel movie to help me unwind while rocking the girls to sleep, there have been some really great movie releases this past week, that will make family movie night and date night in enjoyable for your family.
The first movie the girls and I watched was "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out off Water," which just arrived on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital download this past Tuesday. Our youngest, Bella, is a huge SpongeBob fan, due in part to the catchy theme song, while Savannah wonders why SpongeBob dresses like that and why his friend Patrick Star doesn't wear a shirt. These details make it hard for to sit and watch the show...and, I don't blame her, as I am not really a big SpongeBob fan either...that was, until I saw this movie, which is sure to be a summer hit and one kids and families will be watching over and again.
If you missed this movie when it was in theaters, here i is the official movie trailer as well as a brief synopsis of the movie so you have an idea of what you will be in store for when watching this family-friendly movie, which is 92 minutes in length.

Like I said, Savannah and I aren't real big SpongeBob SquarePants fans, but we couldn't help but get into this movie. Bella was so excited to see all her favorite SpongeBob characters together, and was quick to catch us up to speed on who each character was. This is one movie that you can watch and enjoy even if you haven't seen the previous SpongeBob movie or watch the hit animated series, which both kids and adults enjoy watching.
I will say that the story seemed to jump around at times and left you wondering what was going on, but my husband, who watched the movie with us the second time around was quick to point out, this is customary with the animated series. You are supposed to sit and just enjoy the silliness of the characters and SpongeBob picking on his friends and the other characters. When you try to think seriously about the show, then you quickly lose interest. Thankfully, with limited amount of sleep and wanting to watch a movie that didn't need me to concentrate, this movie was perfect.
Because the movie didn't really make sense, you couldn't help but laugh through the film. There is also slapstick comedy interspersed throughout the film that will make even adults and non SpongeBob fans laugh out loud. :-) Who can't help but smile when the screen is filled with brightly colored scenes and characters. You find yourself watching this movie and admiring the playful scenes and forgetting about the premise of the movie, finding the magical secret formula for the Krabby Patty. When you find yourself remembering this, you then find yourself wiping away tears from laughing so much. :-)
Bella was quick to give this movie 2 thumbs up and has already watched this movie a handful of times with my husband, who is also a huge SpongeBob fan. While I will not say that I am a new SpongeBob fan, I will say that this movie with all its quirks will definitely entertain both young and old. And, even if you watch it just to keep the kids entertained this summer, you will find yourself laughing -- how could you not when you see SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends appear on the screen.
