Buy it... only if you are attempting to complete a playlist of all music from this film, as the brief score will function best alongside the many songs heard in context.

Avoid it... if you expect Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazzaro to write more than a basic string of parody cues that loosely reprise the Hawaiian luau attitude from the concept's origins but fail to develop a standalone narrative.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run: (Hans Zimmer/Steve Mazzaro) The concept of "SpongeBob SquarePants" has been running so long on small screens that some of the children that watched its asininity at its debut in 1999 are showing it to their own children, countless seasons of the Nickelodeon television series continuing into the 2020's. If you wonder why the collective intelligence of society has declined in the age of digitization, start with an analysis of "SpongeBob SquarePants." 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." Creator Stephen Hillenburg perished in 2018, but he persisted long enough to help guide the production of the concept's third feature film, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run. The 2021 movie follows predecessors in 2004 and 2015 and suffered an extraordinary series of delays that saw it pushed back two years and relegated to mostly streaming platforms due to both studio wrangling and the global pandemic. The 2015 film, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, was sadly an immense fiscal success, and, like the plot of that entry, the story of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run is largely irrelevant to those reading this review. In fact, be pleased that you are spared the narrative. The only thing you really need to know is that the concept has an aquatic setting, is obsessed with food, harbors infantile humor, and often involves pirates. When you read reviews of the movie that start with the phrase, "It's a fun-filled family event," be skeptical. Anyone who has been so unfortunate as to witness the show on television will recognize the truly hideous opening theme song introduced by a pirate with only moving lips. Also of interest, of course, is that the ridiculous cast of characters in the show has been accused repeatedly by American Evangelical publicity-hogs of instilling homosexual subversion upon the children of God. That part is a plus. The plot of this movie does affect the original score in that the main live action cameo this time, replacing Antonio Banderas' pirate from the last one, is Keanu Reeves in a Western-oriented role. (Again, let's hope their payday was significant.)
