I expected the new Spongebob Squarepants movie to be terrible. It was not. The movie was pretty funny, pretty hilarious actually.
I think the reason it was so good was that they brought back the original creator of the series, Stephen Hillenburg, who was there for the eponymous first three seasons and the first Spongebob movie (which was great). Because of this, the new movie was filled with wackiness to the extreme. It was flat out ridiculous. Which is why I loved it.
There were some cringy parts, such as the talking birds; the talking birds were hard to deal with, but other than that it was great.
