Movie Synopsis:
In the first-ever all CGI SpongeBob motion picture event, SpongeBob SquarePants, his best friend Patrick, and the Bikini Bottom gang star in their most epic adventure movie yet! When SpongeBob’s beloved pet snail Gary goes missing, a path of clues leads SpongeBob and Patrick to the powerful King Poseidon, who has Gary held captive in the Lost City of Atlantic City. On their mission to save Gary, SpongeBob and his pals team up for a heroic and hilarious journey where they discover nothing is stronger than the power of friendship. (source – Rotten Tomatoes)

My Take:

We watched this on a family movie night recently through Amazon Prime. As a huge SpongeBob fan, MyChild was thrilled to finally be able to see this one. My husband and I were on board because the cartoons have really grown on us.

Honestly, for all the hype and delays, this movie was… fine.

Yes, it was cute. Yes, it had some funny parts. Did I LOVE that Awkwafina and Tiffany Haddish were involved? Yes, yes I did.

There are a few other surprise cast members that make the movie very fun – no spoilers, though.

Overall, I enjoyed the move, but I like The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water much better.

The Final Verdict

SK Movie Rating Scale

Me:            3.5 stars
MyHusband: 4 stars
MyChild: 4 stars

We hope you enjoy!

Understanding the Lyrics: If You’re Gone

When you're happy, you hear the music; when you're sad, you understand the lyrics. - frank ocean

I’m back with another song that has been stuck in my head/speaking to me lately.

Have you ever looked around and suddenly though, “How did I get here? How did I become this person?” Sometimes we miss family members, friends, or even exes; what about when it’s you that you miss?

Maybe it’s time to make some changes and come home.

If you're gone, maybe it's time to come home; there's an awful lot of breathing room, but I can hardly move. If you're gone by Matchbox Twenty

If You’re Gone

Matchbox Twenty

I think I’ve already lost you
I think you’re already gone
I think I’m finally scared now
You think I’m weak, I think you’re wrong
I think you’re already leaving
Feels like your hand is on the door
I thought this place was an empire
Now I’m relaxed, I can’t be sure

And I think you’re so mean
I think we should try
I think I could need this in my life and
I think I’m scared
I think too much
I know it’s wrong, it’s a problem I’m dealing

If you’re gone, maybe it’s time to come home
There’s an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you’re gone, baby you need to come home, come home
There’s a little bit of something me
In everything in you

I bet you’re hard to get over
I bet the room just won’t shine
I bet my hands I can stay here
And I bet you need – more than you mind

And I think you’re so mean
I think we should try
I think I could need this in my life
I think I’m just scared that I know too much
I can’t relate and that’s a problem I’m feeling

If you’re gone, maybe it’s time to come home
There’s an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you’re gone, baby you need to come home, come home
There’s a little bit of something me
In everything in you

I think you’re so mean
I think we should try
I think I could need this in my life and
I think I’m scared
Do I talk too much?
I know it’s wrong, it’s a problem I’m dealing

If you’re gone, maybe it’s time to come home
There’s an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you’re gone
Hell baby you need to come home, come home
There’s a little bit of something me
In everything in you (you)
(Something in me)
(Everything in you)
(Something in me)
…In you
