Review: (#1) It’s almost mind-numbing in its psychedelicness; however, it’s not very appealing. (#2) There’s a lot of detail and fans of the show will get the main sight gag, but it’s just not that appealing. (#3) From a different perspective, this design isn’t terribly far removed from its predecessor. (#4) It tells you what the film is about without having to sell the film to a non-fan-based audience.
(#5) A design for the Chinese New Year is a dull affair with no interesting background and bubble coins that just feel bland. (#6) Not much better, but not much worse, this design has some depth to it, but the background is still empty and the characters are still uninspired.

Review: (#1) If you’re a fan of SpongeBob and his cadre of underwater friends, then you’re already sold on this film. For everyone else, the idiocy on display is off-putting and unimpressive.
(#2) If the show was something you enjoyed, this trailer wasn’t necessary to sell you on the film. For everyone else, the inanity and cheap humor don’t make it any more enticing.
