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! Now it is up to Dexter and his new friend Ed the not-so bright cashier to save the day, as they develop a delicious special secret sauce that Ed created brings hundreds of new customers to their door and makes their new competition desperate to steal the recipe and all of their customers.

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 »

incredibly disappointing
26 November 2003 | by Ross1223See all my reviews

Indeed i am very disappointed that this movie did not win millions of awards because it rocked so hard. How can you go wrong with the guy who played Russ Tyler in D2 the mighty ducks? This amazing comedy duo not only dazzled me with their in your face laugh out loud jokes but they got the hottest gear known to man. YYYYUMMMM!!!! OH SNAP!!!!! 10 out of 10
