Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A laboriously slow suburban adventure..."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"Anyone who doesn't smile is probably either too adult to count or too dead to care."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"A fresh, funny, super-sized kid's comedy that may even have a few grown-ups cracking smiles."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Although clean as a whistle, Good Burger is what show-biz moralist Bill Cosby should be excoriating, along with booty comedies. Its black characters resolutely carry on the tradition of the minstrel show, under the guise of kid entertainment."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Avoid this study of stupidity like the plague."
‑ Oz,
"The meat of the piece is definitely FDA cinematically approved, and perfect if you like this brand of entertainment with the works."
‑ Leonard Klady, Variety
"It's hysterically funny."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"Any energetic junior high class could have written a smarter script than the one Dan Schneider, Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert provide."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"Good Burger equals bad, bad, bad, bad, bad movie."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"This is just one of those movies that really shouldn't have been made."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Few people can be so big-hearted as to tolerate Ed's agonizing brand of pedantic humour."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Take any two young people off the street and throw them into a movie, and they'd be no worse. No one could be worse."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
""plenty of ham and no shortage of cheese""
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"The little ones may well tune in to its wavelength, but woe betide the adult who accompanies them."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"I suspect Mitchell and Thompson are going to be around for a good long while; their clowning talent is as apparent as their schtick is derivative."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
