Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Based on a cable-channel Nickelodeon project, Good Burger teams Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson as a contemporary Abbott and Costello team, working a fast-food stand while competing with a major chain outlet right across the street. It's sight gags and physical humor galore, and while the film is aimed at kids there's no reason adults can't enjoy if caught in the right mood. --Tom Keogh

I own this film on VHS, DVD and even have the CD soundtrack (not to mention the poster on my wall!!). I suppose this is strange coming from a 22 year old rocker! It's the ultimate feel-good film and is always there for me when I'm feeling blue. I guess I'm quite obsessive over this flick, I think EVERYONE needs to own a copy.

There are very few movies that make me fall off my chair and giggle profusely. This is one of them. I don't know why I giggle so much at this ridiculous movie. It is so silly. Yeah, so... so... silly. But I find it so, so charming.

But why? There are so many ridiculous puns. There is nothing on this blue and green Earth that I like more than puns and this movie provides them either intentionally or unintentionally. SAUCE!!! etc... I cab;t think of many of them now because I am still chuckling from the after-effects of this deleightful film.

It is just absurd beyond comparison, well every single film about teenagers with a PG rating would be, but unlike many other films, the toned down language and situations of this film provide it with additional pun fodder and additional charm. The formulaic story and the formulaic characters are all groovy with me.

I am not even high or drunk, but this movie intoxicates me with a bizarre laughter. Kenan and Kel have made me happy today. BRILLIANT!

This highly entertaining family film should be listed among the greatest films of all time. Script, casting, and direction are all top-notch, and the cast is outstanding. Particularly noteworthy are the marvelously talented Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. These brilliant young actors (the stars of TWO superb comedy series on Nickelodeon) display a degree of intelligence, refinement, dignity, and maturity rarely encountered among modern-day young actors; they so skillfully portray two teenagers that the viewer may temporarily forget that they are both adults. The supporting cast is equally wonderful, especially the great Shaquille O'Neal (himself a distinguished actor), and the incomparable Lori Beth Denberg, whose marvelous talents have made her a legend to Nickelodeon viewers. Brian Robbins once again demonstrates that his directorial skills are as sharp as ever, and the production values are up to Nickelodeon's consistently high standards. "Good Burger" is far more than mere entertainment; it inspires, uplifts, and intellectually challenges the viewer. This just may be the greatest film ever made, and it definitely should be viewed by everyone. Rest assured that anyone who sees this film will never forget it.

Yes, the film does have the "slime factor" so prevalent in Nickelodeon's productions.
Yes, the film has jokes that only a seven-year-old could love.
Yes, the film features Sinbad and Abe Vigoda in supporting roles as "adults" that are the brunt of youngsters antics.
Yes, the film has a likeable character with the intelligence of a cucumber and a genuine innocence that endears him to all.

But, it is a delightful little movie that appeals to a cross-section of the audience in a time when there are few genuine non-offensive family films.
And, it does have one really cool dance number to "Knee Deep" featuring the funk man himself, George Clinton.

Who would have thought Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson could pull it off? Just thinking about it sends up a lot of red flags doesn't it? Sure, there slapstick style comedy works well on Nickelodeon but that's television. A half hour of funny on the T.V. screen can turn into 95 minutes of pure stupidity and torture when stretched into a full length motion picture if it's not done correctly.

Believe it or not, `Good Burger' was done absolutely to perfection (pun intended). Kenan and Kel star as Dexter and Ed, two high school kids working at the local fast-food restaurant known as, Good Burger. Yes, the movie contains loads of the over-the-top physical comedy the two are known for, but it also boasts a very inventive, well thought out script containing lots of quotable lines, a strong storyline and a great supporting cast that keeps your interest peaked from beginning to end.

Your children will love it and so will you!

Who loves Orange Soda? Kel loves orange soda... I remember watching this movie so many times when it first came out. Kel sounds like a surfer. Kennan & Kel work at Good Burger to raise money to fix his teacher's car that he damaged. Kel makes a new sauce that brings in new customers. I haven't seen this movie in years up until a few days ago when I wanted to show my son, he got such a kick out of it.

I liked this movie and I miss these characters from Nickeldeon. I think they should bring back these characters maybe in a different but funny modern day show...I know Kenan is doing SNL, so he is busy. I like the actors like Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server & Danny Tamberelli should do a comedy show together. Just a thought out loud.

I love Kenan and Kel. They made such a good team and I miss that. Even though their show/movies are geared for kids, as an adult I still got a kick out of them. Had they not gone their separate ways, they could have been as big as Laurel/Hardy, Martin/Lewis, etc. This movie is good, silly fun. Something we need more of. It is not Blu Ray or even HD, but the picture quality is pretty good. I wish both of them well, and hope one day they get back together because they sure are entertaining!
