"Not To Your Knowledge" ~ Kenan & Kel Discover the Secret
Brian E. Erland | Brea, CA - USA | 07/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Who would have thought Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson could pull it off? Just thinking about it sends up a lot of red flags doesn't it? Sure, there slapstick style comedy works well on Nickelodeon but that's television. A half hour of funny on the T.V. screen can turn into 95 minutes of pure stupidity and torture when stretched into a full length motion picture if it's not done correctly.
Believe it or not, `Good Burger' was done absolutely to perfection (pun intended). Kenan and Kel star as Dexter and Ed, two high school kids working at the local fast-food restaurant known as, Good Burger. Yes, the movie contains loads of the over-the-top physical comedy the two are known for, but it also boasts a very inventive, well thought out script containing lots of quotable lines, a strong storyline and a great supporting cast that keeps your interest peaked from beginning to end.
Your children will love it and so will you!"

"I own this film on VHS, DVD and even have the CD soundtrack (not to mention the poster on my wall!!). I suppose this is strange coming from a 22 year old rocker! It's the ultimate feel-good film and is always there for me when I'm feeling blue. I guess I'm quite obsessive over this flick, I think EVERYONE needs to own a copy."
A Little Bit of Juvenile Humor Goes a Long Way
Reginald D. Garrard | Camilla, GA USA | 12/25/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Yes, the film does have the "slime factor" so prevalent in Nickelodeon's productions.
Yes, the film has jokes that only a seven-year-old could love.
Yes, the film features Sinbad and Abe Vigoda in supporting roles as "adults" that are the brunt of youngsters antics.
Yes, the film has a likeable character with the intelligence of a cucumber and a genuine innocence that endears him to all.
But, it is a delightful little movie that appeals to a cross-section of the audience in a time when there are few genuine non-offensive family films. And, it does have one really cool dance number to "Knee Deep" featuring the funk man himself, George Clinton."
You're In For A "Good" Treat

""Good Burger" is a marvelous comedy.
The main character is Ed (Kel Mitchell), a teen who has serious problems. He's always addressing this phrase: "Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger! Can I take your order?" And he's always singing: "I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, 'cause we're all dudes, hey!" Ed works at a marvelous fast food joint called Good Burger, which ties in with the title of the movie. He's the counter guy at the restaurant. He never, ever takes his employee's outfit off, not even his hat. Ed's also a Rollerblader, but he's not careful when he skates through town. He always runs into people and trips 'em over. And he's also not very cautious when a car's coming by him.
Another character is Dexter Reed (Kenan Thompson). The story begins on the last day of a year at Brierdale High School. Dexter's a dude (in Ed's words) who's anxious for school to let out. Dexter takes his best friend for a ride away from school in his mom's car, but...UH-OH! Dexter's a driver without a license!
Meanwhile, Ed has a delivery to make, and while he heads to the person's house, he skates into Dexter's sight and the car ends up spinning around and accidentally colliding into the car of his teacher, Mr. Wheat (Sinbad). Mr. Wheat gets really mad with Dexter about the accident, but Dexter tries his best to explain what happened, but it doesn't work.
Mr. Wheat decides that Dexter owes $1,900 to fix his car. To get the $1,900, Dexter gets a summer job at the soon-opening burger chain called Mondo Burger, led by Kurt Bozwell (Jan Schweiterman).
Dexter is really messy at making the sandwiches, which makes Kurt really mad. Kurt keeps shouting and calling Dexter names on purpose. Dexter has been joking around too much, so they demote him, and Dexter's feelings are hurt.
Meanwhile, back at Good Burger, Ed meets Dexter. Dexter explains why he's upset, and Ed feels very sorry for him and decides to cheer him up by offering him a job at Good Burger. And Dexter is fortunately hired for a job!
A few days later, Mondo Burger finally opens, crushing Good Burger to the bone, unfortunately.
The Mondo Burgers are large.
During lunchbreak the next day (not quite a break), Ed tells Dexter about his private sauce recipe.
So then, they they put the Ed's Sauce on all the Good Burgers, and Good Burger gets back in business! Meanwhile, Kurt finds out the news and wants to find the sauce recipe so he can crush Good Burger again.
Kurt sends a hot girl named Roxanne (Carmen Electra) into Good Burger to ask Ed on a date the next evening to get the sauce recipe. Then Ed invites Dexter to come with a date. He comes with Monique (Shar Jackson).
For the date, the four go to a miniature golf course. When Ed putts at the first hole, he swings his golf club too far, hitting Roxanne in the head, and his golf ball hits Roxanne in the forehead, causing her to pass out.
In another attempt to get the recipe, Roxanne soothes Ed, but Ed (how retarded he is) doesn't understand the bribe of love. He accidentally knocks her over and breaks a few of her bones. She tells Kurt that she quits.
