Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie: Sponge Out of Water stars the most famous talking sponge in popular culture. Like the Nickelodeon cartoon series on which it's based, the movie has occasional insult language ("jerk," "stupid") and exaggerated violence (basically everything Plankton does with weapons -- like guns and cannons -- and the threat of death to SpongeBob, who's offered as a sacrifice at one point). Some of the movie's humor will likely go over young kids' head (like the way everyone in "post-apocalyptic Bikini Bottom" wears Mad Max-like leather costumes, or when one of the gang accidentally lands on a sunbathing woman's back and she murmurs that it feels good), but kids will definitely get the bird poop and blowhole laser gags. SpongeBob isn't known for being educational, but the movie, like most of the shows, does stress the importance of teamwork and friendship.

Sexual Content


Post-apocalyptic Bikini Bottom residents aim to sacrifice SpongeBob but are thwarted before he's killed; an ancient dolphin can shoot lasers from its blowhole. The Super SpongeBob characters fight the swashbuckling pirate chef. Weapons are used, including guns and cannons. Most of the violence is exaggerated for humor/effect.


Insults: "jerk," "stupid," "apocalyptic cesspool."

Social Behavior

Amid some of the cruder jokes are positive messages about teamwork and the joy of working with others you trust toward a common goal.


No product placement in the movie, but there are loads of tie-ins to the SpongeBob brand -- games, toys, apparel, accessories, and much more.
