If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I thought Big Picture Show was ok, but definitely not a high point for the series. The first three or so seasons had a lot of clever writing and gags that did what the early seasons of Spongebob did so well: use simple story ideas to great effect. They did not need to be complicated or layered stories. Even something as simple as "washing Rolf's animals" or "Plank and Jonny not friends anymore" were made fun with great character writing and word play. The later seasons scraped this unfortunately to do more of that terribly overdone "goofy" stuff like most shows do now. You know, nonsensical gags, flat character writing and "acting" that is mostly people shouting at the top of their lungs. This movie still had that sadly, though it did not feel as painful since they were not cramming it into only ten minutes. It still lacked heart and wit though and that is my biggest complaint. It only really got interesting when the Kevin/Nazz storyline happened or in the end when Eddy's brother showed up because they felt more genuine than the actually really unfunny stories involving Rolf or Jonny.
Good Wilt Hunting (that show you mentioned) however actually had a lot of heart and wit going for it. It was dependent on the interactions and emotions of the characters and had emotion backing it up. The characters did not need to try and be "goofy" because they had a natural quirkiness that was comfortable in the universe they established for themselves. It helps too it had clever writing with minimal yet effective use of physical gags.
first review huh? well, great job dude. i look forward to other reviews by you and welcome to spill if its your first. check some of mine out if you can too.
and i loved the movie too. but i believe even if you only saw a little bit of the show you would still like it. full price to me
I agree! I was a big fan of the show, and I was really happy to see it capped off so well. The movie dig a great job of summing up the series and had all these great little throwbacks to old episodes.
It's just a great ending to a great show
