Plot

The plot concerns the exploits of Doinkster (Gerald Mitchell), a high-schooler who just started working at Good Burger to pay off the debt of a car accident that involved one of his teachers, Mr. Wheat (Sinbad). However, when a new, larger, more popular burger restaurant, Mondo Burgers, opens up across the street, the Good Burger employees must try to save their restaurant from being run out of business. The movie was based on the popular Good Burger sketch, in which Funnie plays the infamous Hannah, a not-so bright cashier at a fast food restaurant. After trying to compete with the large restaurant across the street by creating a secret sauce, Funnie and Mitchell's characters find out that Mondo Burgers' beef is somehow unnatural. They go undercover, and reveal an even more illegal scheme within Mondo Burgers. The main characters in the movie use a vehicle known as the "Burgermobile" (an AMC Pacer).

It is good to see many of the original cast members of All That in Good Burger, which definitely makes the movie feel much more like a extended episode of the series rather than a full length movie.
Good Burger can best be compared to Wayne's World, a series of five minute skits were thrown on the big screen using the same characters but in a plot rather than five simple minutes of laughs.
Good Burger may not be the funniest, the wittiest, or the cleverest movie to date, but it does a fine job of keeping one entertained for a good hour and a half.
Good Burger DVD Review at The Z Review UK DVD reviews (898 words)
Good Burger is inspired from that show and it turns out the film is not that bad.
Good Burger is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and enhanced for 16x9 televisions.
However, Good Burger is not the most audio-driven film and therefore there’s not much to accentuate in terms of sound effects (except for the popping of ketchup and other good stuff).
