After 16 years of dwelling in the 2-D animated world of Bikini Bottom, silly, hyperactive burger slinger SpongeBob SquarePants surfaces to the live action world in “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water 3-D.”
The 3-D adventure features all of the stars of the long-running Nickelodeon cartoon series, including the titular character along with his best friend Patrick, scientist squirrel Sandy, sardonic Squidward, his crabby boss Mr. Krabs, conniving Plankton and the rest of the crustacean inhabitants from beneath the sea. It also introduces a new human character in the form of Burger Beard, played with dastardly menace by Antonio Banderas.
