Storyline

Dexter Reed, a high-schooler is forced to get a summer job at a fast food restaurant called Good Burger after causing a car wreck by his school teacher Mr. Wheat. So Dexter must pay off his teacher's car by working very hard at Good Burger. Meanwhile things turned worse when Mondo Burger, a mammoth fast-food chain opens across the street, it looks like Good Burger is soon going to be history for good!

Connie Muldoon: [as she gives her long order, her speed of talking increases] Hello. My name is Connie Muldoon. I'm hosting a family reunion and my oven has run amuck; I think it's the heat actuator. Anyhoo, I'd like to order, uh, three Good Meals, four Junior Good Meals, and 17-piece order of your Good Chunks and, okay, on two of the Junior Good Meals, I need to substitute the Good Cookies for Good Pies.

Alternate Versions

When this movie originally aired on Nickelodeon, two actors from the original film were brought into brief recording sessions to both re-dub two lines that were deem inappropriate for a kids network. Abe Vigoda's line "I think I broke my ass" was changed to "I think I broke my tail", while George Clinton changes his "Ooh, this music sucks" to "Ooh, this music stinks". The original lines were revived when the movie aired on Nick@Nite in 2007. See more »

The second Nick feature a winner!
1 August 2001 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

This 1997 movie is based on a hilarious sketch from the series, All That. Well, Good Burger is just as hilarious on the big screen as it is on the small screen. Even though this movie was marketed as a kid's film, it can really be enjoyed by all ages. The plot is simple and has it's flaws, but that doesn't hurt the movie. Just sit back and relax, and you're sure to enjoy this movie. The movie is funny mainly due to it's stars, Kenan and Kel. They have an excellent chemistry together and are a great comedy team. Thumbs up for Good Burger!
