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!

...But who cares? This is simply a fun movie to watch with your kids. Though I don't have kids,I sat down with this one anyway,and had a great time. The character of Ed is downright hilarious. He actually holds the film together and keeps it entertaining. Sinbad is good as afro-sporting accident-prone teacher Mr.Wheat,and good ol' Abe Vigoda shows up as the geriatric fry guy.

A fun flick that shouldn't be missed...fast food,fast fun....

2 1/2 out of 4 stars
