Storyline

Auggie and Drew are a couple of guys who have been at the college they are at longer than most students because they spend most of their time throwing parties and charging people to come and other schemes. But when the Dean grows tired of their escapades he graduates them. They go to see Drew's cousin, Samantha who runs her family's gas station and she tells them that the owner of a fast food chain wants to buy the station. Drew reminds her that her father had hopes and dreams built around the station. When she sees how obnoxious the owner is, she decides not to sell. Auggie thinks they should open their own restaurant. He goes to the bank and gets a loan but only by putting the station up as collateral. They open but things are slow. But when a sorority at the college hires them, Auggie decides to put a formula one of their college mates develop which is an aphrodisiac. And pretty soon business is booming. And the owner who in addition to not taking the rejection well, wants to know ... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Secret Sauce
11 September 2016 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

Finding themselves "not qualified to do anything" after a lengthy college stint, two best friends establish their own fast food joint and spike the secret sauce with a powerful aphrodisiac to promote business in this little-seen comedy that falls halfway between college comedy and food industry satire. Much of the humour is very low-brow and some of the performances (in particular a monotone Don Ferguson as the stern college dean) are downright awful, however, the film offers some food for thought (pun intended) in terms of the hardness of landing a job even with a college degree, as well as the competitive nature of the fast food industry. Jim Varney is delightfully zany as a rival fast food proprietor, and while some of his vocal mannerisms are over-the-top, he has several wacky moments riding toy horses (!) and constantly asking for spare change while maintaining a straight face. Kevin McCarthy (of 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' fame) comes off best though as a no-nonsense judge in the film's final act. Solid as McCarthy is though, it is hard to deny that the film ends on a low note with a resolution that comes across as a little too swift and easy for credibility; a predictable romance and a smug main character also weigh against the film. Never to mind, there is enough zaniness throughout 'Fast Food' to keep things chugging along, from a makeshift casino to a couple of medical students conducting a bizarre sleep monitoring experiment to Varney's humorously pathetic television commercials. It is best advised though to not go in expecting a hidden gem.
