The second Nick feature a winner!
1 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

This 1997 movie is based on a hilarious sketch from the series, All That. Well, Good Burger is just as hilarious on the big screen as it is on the small screen. Even though this movie was marketed as a kid's film, it can really be enjoyed by all ages. The plot is simple and has it's flaws, but that doesn't hurt the movie. Just sit back and relax, and you're sure to enjoy this movie. The movie is funny mainly due to it's stars, Kenan and Kel. They have an excellent chemistry together and are a great comedy team. Thumbs up for Good Burger!
