Plot summary

What is The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run" movie plot summary.

In Bikini Bottom, Plankton (Mr. Lawrence) works on a new plan to steal the Krabby Patty formula while Karen (Jill Talley) argues that SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) is actually responsible for all his previous failures and not Mr. Krabs (Clancy Brown). That same night, Plankton sneaks into the Krusty Krab and scans a Krabby Patty to print the formula but SpongeBob inadvertently causes Plankton to fall into a deep fryer and lose the formula while the latter was searching for his keys. This leads Plankton to understand that Karen was right in her suspicions.
Meanwhile, in Atlantic City, selfish ruler King Poseidon (Matt Berry) has just used up all the slime from his latest sea snail, which is necessary to keep him rejuvenated. Since sea snails are almost extinct, Poseidon decrees the obtaining of a new snail. Plankton finds out about this and kidnaps SpongeBob's pet snail Gary so that SpongeBob will go to find him and thus not interfere with his plans. The next morning, SpongeBob learns from Patrick (Bill Fagerbakke) that Gary was taken to Atlantic City. However, Plankton offers Otto (Awkwafina), a robot built by Sandy, to take them to the city and never return. Without SpongeBob cooking Krabby Patties, the Krusty Krab's enraged customers trash the restaurant despite Mr. Krabs and Squidward's efforts to stop them. Otto drives SpongeBob and Patrick to an old Western town where they meet a tumbleweed spirit named Sage (Keanu Reeves).
Sage reveals that they are in a dream and must overcome a special mission to continue their search. He gives them a "Challenge Coin" that will embrave them into a tavern haunted by ghostly zombie pirates. Following a small musical number with Snoop Dogg, SpongeBob and Patrick discover that the pirates' souls are trapped by an evil spirit known as "El Diablo" and their mission is to free them. El Diablo (Danny Trejo) traps the duo in his office, but they accidentally disintegrate him with the sunlight by uncovering some window curtains. The pirates' souls are freed and SpongeBob and Patrick continue on their travel until Otto wakes them up, thus revealing that everything was a dream.
