Good Burger (1997)

Sunny, terminally silly farce in which comedy teammates Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell try to save a humble burger joint from being devoured by the gaudy rival across the street. Add half a star if you’re in the pre-teen age group that… More

Consensus: Good Burger might please hardcore fans of the 1990s Nickelodeon TV series that launched leads Kenan and Kel to stardom, but for all others, it will likely prove a comedy that is neither satisfyingly rare nor well done.

There are some cute visuals now and then, but overall Good Burger may raise your blood pressure and, if you suffer through the entire 94 minutes, perhaps even lower your IQ.

Young fans of TV stars Kenan and Kel are about the only ones who will be remotely amused by this misjudged comedy.

The wiry Mitchell and the chubby Thompson may physically suggest such great teams as Laurel and Hardy and Abbott and Costello, but -- at this stage of their development -- the resemblance ends there.

The rest is a pranky, sketchy romp filled with goofy capers by Kenan and Kel. Together, they generate a kind of loopy charm, taking off from Kenan's woozy naivete and Kel's rubber-faced physicality.

Good Burger isn't USDA Choice by any means, but it's an enjoyable family flick with a nice message about friendship and responsibility.

Young fans will be amused by the duo's dopey antics, but most adults will simply be perplexed.

Good Burguer is a fun movie. The worst thing is the silly gags on the Dan Schneider's screenplay.
