Movies from TV shows almost always never work. It's even worse when a movieis based off of a skit from Saturday Night Live. So it's no wonder peoplewere less than inviting when Good Burger came about, a movie based off of askit from a kids version of SNL that airs on Nickelodeon. Seeing as I usedto be a big fan of All That, I decided to give Good Burger another go-round,to see if its juvenile humor still stood up throughout the years. And itdid.<br><br>Ed (Kel Mitchell) is a man of indeterminable age who works at a local diningestablishment, Good Burger. He's basically a stoner that doesn't use drugs(at least in the movie). When a customer asks for a burger with nothing onit, he just gives him a bun. Ed'd rather play miniature golf then spend time"alone" with Roxanne (Carmen Electra). After crashing his mother's car,Dexter (Kenan Thompson) needs a job, so first he tries the new Mondo Burger,opening across the street from Good Burger. But then he gets a job with GoodBurger, and Mondo Burger opens, which threatens to put Good Burger out ofbusiness. What are Ed and Dexter to do?<br><br>As Leonard Maltin puts it, "Like fast food itself, this film offers no realnourishment, but will appeal to kids just the same." Perhaps the firststatement is true, but is there anything wrong with that? Sometimes abrainless, fun time at the movies is all one desires. And although it'sbased off of a kids show, anyone of any age can enjoy it. Even if itsjuvenile humor doesn't strike you as particularly hilarious, it'sentertaining, and more importantly, its heart is in the right place. Most ofthe humor isn't mean-spirited, the main character of Ed is just too likeableto do anything mean. In fact, Ed makes the movie. With his wacky brand ofliving, he's a hilarious character, and a nice guy at that.<br><br>So don't let the light-hearted nature of this movie stop you from seeing it.You'll get some laughs out of it, like I did, but you'll find that it's afun movie. I guarantee it.<br><br>My rating: 7/10<br><br>Rated PG for language, some comic violence and mild sex-relatedhumor.
