Good Burger

Director: Brian Robbins
Year Released: 1997
Rating: 2.5

On his last day of school before summer vacation, Dexter (Kenan Thompson) recklessly slams into the car of his teacher Mr. Wheat (Sinbad), so to pay for the damages he takes a job at the struggling Good Burger with dimwitted Ed (Kel Mitchell), even though they're facing stiff competition from the brand new (and modern!) Mondo Burger across the street.  While it is mostly for the kids - it's based on a skit from the show All That on Nickelodeon - and very immature, it's also innocent (Ed doesn't understand that Carmen Electra is trying to seduce him) and provides a nice anti-corporate message that also warns about dangerous food additives (see, it's a little educational!).  For the record, this is one of my Father's guilty pleasures (he spent time flipping burgers after leaving the Marine Corps); it also acts as the screen debut of Linda Cardellini, whose adorable psychopath could ruin me any day of the week.
