- Your dreams and/or nightmares
We all know that the movie takes place at the end of the almost nonexistent timeline. But do you think it is a good ending? I've only ever heard people say yes, but I disagree. Plankton trying to take over the world and then going to prison doesn't really fit as an ending for a show like SpongeBob, especially now. Maybe it fit okay back in the days of Seasons 1-3, but now there has been enough interaction between the two to see clearly that SpongeBob tends to view Plankton as a misguided friend rather than someone evil. It doesn't feel right that he would be content with Plankton going to prison forever and would just give up on trying to reform him. I also feel like Squidward and SpongeBob's relationship deserves some sort of closure, as SpongeBob has been able to bring out a happier side of him several times but it never had any lasting impact. I'm not saying the movie shouldn't have happened the way it did, but I feel like there should be some sort of epilogue that isn't just "SpongeBob works a lot more now for an extra nickel, isn't that hilarious?"
