The Best Movie Since "Hot Dog... The Movie"
4 April 2001 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Wherever they house the formula that was made to concoct this movie, they should lock it up and throw away the key.

It was that good!

To try to duplicate this cinematic magic would be an injustice, similar to the tragic stringing out of Police Academy action thrillers.

Jack Blessing was brilliant in his challenging role of Nacio Herb Zipser. His performance was surpassed perhaps only by John Young as Prestopopnick, who proved that mind can indeed overcome matter when it comes to the vices of junk food.

And who says there are no positive roles for women in Hollywood? Randi Brooks and Karen Mayo-Chandler, who played Mrs. Vunk and Dr. Gotbottom, respectively, proved action speaks louder than words when they showed off plenty of T&A.

It was sad to a movie like Platoon clean up as the Oscars, while Hamburger... The Motion Picture was shunned by a shamelessly and unapologetic vegetarian Tinseltown.
