Buy it... only if you have a high tolerance threshold for obnoxiously bombastic children's parody music, John Debney uncorking an admirably solid effort for this hideously ridiculous concept.

Avoid it... if you expect the central pirate element in this film to be addressed by Debney with music even remotely as impressive as that heard in his classic score for Cutthroat Island.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water: (John Debney) The Nickelodeon television series "SpongeBob SquarePants" has endured an endless barrage of colorful criticism through the years, and yet here it still amazingly persists. Running on television since 1999, the concept is unbelievably a favorite of parents ranging from President Barack Obama to Prime Minister Gordon Brown, the franchise spewing forth one film in 2004 and finally a sequel in 2015. A synopsis of the sequel is not really merited for the sane mind (after all, a 2011 University of Virginia study published in the journal "Pediatrics" concluded that kids who watch "SpongeBob SquarePants" experience "short-term disruptions in mental function and attention span" and "were operating at half the capacity compared to other children.") outside of the need for this review to explain that there is a heavy pirate emphasis to the plot. The fact that the asinine cast of characters, accused famously by American Evangelical publicity-hogs of instilling homosexual subversion upon the children of God, is obsessed with food and extremely infantile humor is all the rest you need to know. Parents of intellectual concern could view the concept with about as much confidence as something like "Yo Gabba Gabba," a frightening thought. The 2015 cinematic sequel, The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, is animated for most of its length but sprinkles in some live action with CGI renderings of the deviant cast. The hapless live-action foil is played by Antonio Banderas, his "Burger-Beard" character in pursuit of a magical notebook that can make its words become granted wishes. Let's hope his payday was significant. Critics and other audiences embraced the film and gave it enough eye-popping revenue to immediately lead to production commencement of another ungodly abomination of a SpongeBob adventure on the big screen. The music for the 2004 film was handled by the acclaimed veteran of the television show, Gregor Narholz, but the adventurous score for The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water fell to experienced children's feature score writer John Debney. Also mixed into the film's soundtrack was some original song material contributed by Pharrell Williams and his band N.E.R.D., though Debney's score was released separately on its own. For the experienced composer, The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water represents an easy but fun assignment, one plundering a number of genres of music in the process of recording a passable and occasionally entertaining parody score.
