‘The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie’
You don’t need to have seen a second of the undying “SpongeBob” show to enjoy the second movie, which is essentially “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” for kids (and kid-like adults), meaning it’s an unfettered blast of non-sequitur weirdness. The plot really does matter, because it’s totally insane: our hero (voiced by the great Tom Kenny) tries to rescue a burger recipe stolen from his aquatic land, which, without their prime product, has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Eventually he winds up on the live-action surface, doing battle with pirate Antonio Banderas, but it’s batty well before then, with at least two Kubrick references and one drawn-out nod to Sergio Leone. You know, for the kids!
