Did You Know?


The DVD for the film has no special features, which have been requested by many fans of the film. Two fans, that being Mason Morgan & Ryun Jones had made a message on their show The Marvelous M Show (2011), asking Nickelodeon and Paramount to make a 20th Anniversary Blu-Ray Disc by summer of 2017 featuring the making of special "On the Job with Kenan & Kel", the music video to Ed's song "We're All Dudes", some deleted scenes, and Bumpers from "Nick in the Afternoon" featuring the premiere of the film. Paramount and Nickelodeon has yet to respond to any of these requests. See more »

No Oscar contender here....

...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
