''Good Burger'' is a 1997 comedy film produced by {{Nickelodeon}} Movies and released by Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures, directed by Brian Robbins and produced by DanSchneider and starring [[KenanAndKel Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell]], Creator/{{Sinbad}}, Shar Jackson, Abe Vigoda, and Jan Schweiterman. (Carmen Electra, Shaquille O'Neal, and Music/GeorgeClinton make brief [[TheCameo cameo]] appearances.) The film was based on a popular recurring sketch on {{Nickelodeon}}'s sketch show ''Series/AllThat'', with Mitchell reprising his role as an airheaded fast food cashier. The film is noteworthy for being the first theatrical-released film based on a Nickelodeon show. It is also the only film that fits that criteria that is based on a live-action Nickelodeon show.

In the film, Thompson plays Dexter, a high-school student that is forced to work at Good Burger after causing a car crash with his teacher Mr. Wheat. The restaurant is also rivaled by Mondo Burger across the street, a menacing mammoth chain that could easily make Good Burger a piece of history. Ed has also concocted a special sauce that everyone is going gaga over, and Mondo is determined to steal the recipe and their costumers. Dexter and Ed team up to beat their competition and end up unearthing a dark secret...[[spoiler:Mondo Burgers are treated with chemicals that enlarge the patties.]]

It earned $23.7 million in the US & Canada, against a $9 million budget. Reviews for the film were mostly negative, garnering a 31% "rotten" rating at RottenTomatoes.

!!Tropes this movie follows:

* AllJustADream: Ed dreams of burgers talking to him at the beginning of the movie.
* ArtisticLicenseChemistry: Mondo Burger's "triamphethol" is an additive that somehow causes hamburger meat to increase in mass during cooking. Kurt admits that it is "way illegal"--indeed, it violates not only the health code, but also the law of conservation of mass.
* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: Abe Vigoda's line "I think I broke my ass" and (to a lesser extent) the mental patient played by George Clinton remarking that the music in the mental hospital lobby sucks.
* BackForTheFinale: Notice when the crowd of employees and customers cheer for Ed saving Good Burger in the end, Heather can be seen hiding amongst the crowd (looking over Mr. Bailey's shoulder).
* BadBadActing: Pay close attention during Mondo Burger's demise, as you watch customers and patrons race out of the restaurant and it comes down, one man amongst the panicking crowd has the most calm, relaxed, subdued look on his face... in fact, he doesn't even really run out of the restaurant, he just casually slips into the crowd and makes his way out the door.
* BadBoss / MeanBoss: Kurt, who runs Mondo Burger like a Nazi boot camp.
* BedlamHouse: The main characters are sent there by the BigBad after learning the secret behind Mondo Burger's...well, mondo burgers.
* BenevolentBoss: Mr. Bailey teeters back and forth between being an exact example of this, and being more of a reluctant example.
* BiggerIsBetter: Apparently Mondo Burger's philosophy. Kurt's attempted solution to getting customers? Make their "already twice as big as Good Burger's" burgers bigger!
-->'''Employee:''' But they're already--\\
'''Kurt:''' Bigger! ''[[UpToEleven BIGGER!!]]''
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Ed's dream at the beginning of the movie where the burgers begin talking to him and then send him falling down a deep chasm; it is never mentioned again in the movie.
* BigNo: Ed, when he stops the old lady from eating a poisoned good burger.
* BookEnds: The movie begins and ends with Ed saying his customary Good Burger greeting.
* TheBrute: Spatch (although a benevolent example) and "Mr. Big Huge Scary Man" at the BedlamHouse.
* BurgerFool: Subverted for Ed, but applies for Dexter.
* ButtMonkey: Mr. Wheat, Dexter's accident-prone teacher.
** Otis counts as an IronButtMonkey. It's incredibly impressive to watch Abe Vigoda take that many prat falls, seeing as by now he ''must'' be in his early 200's.
* CatapultNightmare: Ed, after dreaming about talking burgers and then falls down a hole.
-->'''Ed:''' ''(waking up)'' WELCOME TO GOOD BURGER, HOME OF THE GOOD BURGER. CAN I TAKE-- huh?
* CatchPhrase: "Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?"
** "Mess with Kurt, and you go into the grinder".
* CanonForeigner: Not counting anyone not connected to Good Burger in which the sketches took place, Dexter, Otis and most of the supporting staff never appeared in the sketches, although Kenan Thompson often did appear in the sketches as various customers.
* ChaseScene
* TheChewToy: Roxanne, an extremely hot Mondo Burger employee, who ends up getting torn to pieces in an attempt to [[HoneyTrap seduce Ed into revealing his sauce recipe]] during a double date with Dexter and Monique.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint:
-->'''Otis:''' I caught those Mondo brats dumping shark poison in our sauce.

-->'''Ed:''' Why would they want to harm those innocent sharks?
* CompletelyDifferentTitle: In Finland, this movie was released as ''The Burger Kings'', and in Poland it was titled ''Operation Hamburger''.

* CrowdSong: "(Not Just) Knee Deep"
** There's even a cameo by GeorgeClinton as one of the mental patients.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Ed is the definition.
** Heather as well.
* DisappearedDad: Dexter's dad.
* TheDitz[=/=]IdiotHero: Ed
* TheDogBitesBack: Kurt fires and humiliates Dexter for cracking jokes. Dexter later plays a role in destroying Mondo Burger and getting Kurt arrested.
* DumbassHasAPoint:
-->'''Ed:''' See, I knew that if I took the can, there was a good chance I'd get caught. Then I thought that even if I did take the triambythal to the proper authorities, Kurt would hire some high-powered attorney who dispute any charges brought against him or Mondo Burger, by manipulating the legal system. And the way that America's court system is congested these days, it would have taken months to convict him of anything. So then I thought, I just take the matter into my own hands and pour the triambythal into the meat supply and let Mondo Burger [[HoistByHisOwnPetard be a victim of its own foul play]].
* EvilDetectingDog: Ed gives a hungry dog a Mondo Burger patty, but the dog won't eat it for some reason. So Ed gives him a Good Burger patty instead and it immediately eats it. This begins to make Dexter and Ed suspicious about Mondo Burger.
* EvilIsHammy: Kurt, full stop.
* FanDisservice: Ed wearing Victoria's Secret.
* FemmeFatale: Roxanne.
* FoodPorn: Considering it's about burgers, occurs, particularly the pre-title opening.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: "If anyone can get the sauce out of Ed, she can!"
** When being drilled on Mondo Burger protocol, Kurt mentions that his employees should forget their families, because he is both their mother and father. Dexter tells one of his fellow trainees, "Kurt must look awfully strange naked."
** When Ed is about to tell the contents of the secret good burger sauce and is tackled to the ground by Dexter "I like you as a friend and all but..."
* HeelRealization: Dexter has this after Monique calls him out for cheating Ed out of money.
* HeroicBSOD: Ed gets this after trying to follow Connie Muldoon's order for her family reunion.
* HitlerCam: Kurt's opening scene.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The illegal chemicals that Mondo Burger uses to enlarge their burgers cause the restaurant to collapse when Ed pours ALL of it into the meat supply.
* HumiliationConga: The destruction of Mondo Burger.
* IronicEcho: "Remember, when you mess with Good Burger, YOU go in the grinder!"
* {{Jerkass}}: Kurt.
** Dexter himself is quite a JerkAss throughout the film. Thankfully, he does improve unlike the very criminal Kurt.
* JiveTurkey: Dexter's math teacher, played by [[Film/JingleAllTheWay Sinbad]].
* KickTheDog: Ed of all people does this unintentionally when Dexter complains about the lousy day he had.
--> '''Dexter''': Man, I can't believe Kurt fired me from Mondo Burger. He yelled at me, he insulted me, he made fun of me...
--> '''Ed''': Boy, you must really suck!
* KindheartedSimpleton: Ed.
* LargeHam: Both Ed and Kurt.
* LimitedWardrobe: Ed never takes his uniform off, not even in the shower. Except in the mental hospital.
* LiteralMinded: Ed.
* ManChild: Ed, again.
* MarriedToTheJob: Ed, it seems. He wears his Good Burger uniform everywhere, even in the shower and on dates. See LimitedWardrobe.
* MissingTrailerScene: Some trailers had a man request a "Good Shake", which was followed by Ed [[LiteralMinded literally shaking him]].
* {{Mooks}}: Troy and Griffin (the Greek guy and the tough black guy at Mondo Burger).
* MotorMouth: A customer (none other than [[CastingGag Connie Muldoon]]) with a ridiculously long and complicated order, who causes Ed's brain (what little there is of it) to blow a fuse.
** Dexter, when he tries to explain why he was sloppy making a Mondo Burger. And when he got caught making a snidey remark and laughing. This is what got him thrown out.
* MsFanservice: Carmen Electra, aka [[HoneyTrap Roxanne]].
* NeverMyFault: Dexter, who just recognizing where he's seen Ed, blames him for the car accident that forced him to get a summer job to pay for it. He also blames him for his parents finding out he was ''driving without a license'', which he shouldn't have been doing in the first place.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Ed explains that he poured the bottles of acid into the meat on purpose because he knew that Kurt would manipulate the legal system to his favor unless the cops discover the acid themselves as they did when the restaurant imploded; Ed then goes on to say "I'm not stupid," despite his blatant idiocy throughout the movie (as well as the ''All That'' sketch that the film is based on).
* OhCrap: Dexter when he's standing on top of a delivery van that's about to drive off. Actually, Dexter has these moments throughout the movie.
** Kurt when Dexter informs him that Ed is on his way to the police with evidence of Mondo Burger's criminal practices.
* OutOfFocus: This apparently happens to Monique: she's established as Dexter's love interest, who initially has no interest in him, but apparently that little subplot offers nothing to viewers, as many critics and reviewers of the movie seem to overlook her altogether.
* OverlyLongGag: BLOOBITY BLOOBITY BLOOBITY BLOOBITY, BLOOBITY BLOOBITY BLOOBITY BLOOBITY, BLOOBITY BLOOBITY BLOOBITY BLOOBITY, BLOOBITY BLOOBITY...
* OwMyBodyPart: After Dexter tackled Ed to shut him up from revealing the recipe for his sauce.
-->'''Ed:''' Dexter? You're squishing my pancreas.
* ProductPlacement: A reporter briefly appears from LA's KCOP-13 (back when they had their own newscast; now they're owned by Fox and have no news); they were an affiliate of UPN at the time (this was a Paramount movie). Also, Mr. Wheat drives an Infiniti near the end of the movie, and there's a Coca-Cola machine at Good Burger.
* PopStarComposer: The movie score was composed by the fantastic Stewart Copeland, drummer for Music/ThePolice. The score contains numerous moments of guitar shredding, heavy rock riffs, synthesizers, and R&B vocal samples.
** Also, the movie has a cover of the song "Roxanne" in it, which was originally a Police song.
* RaceAgainstTheClock: After escaping the mental hospital, Dexter, Ed, and Otis race to Good Burger before anyone eats the poisoned sauce.
* RageAgainstTheHeavens: Mr. Wheat has a brief moment of this after a ''giant burger'' crushes his car.
* ReasonYouSuckSpeech:
** Dexter dishes one out to Ed when he realizes that Ed was the rollerblading nut who contributed to his auto accident.
-->'''Dexter:''' Now I know where I saw you before, you're the rollerblading nut who caused my accident!
-->'''Ed:''' Uh, no?
-->'''Dexter:''' You're the reason why I owe $19,000! You're the reason my mom found out I was driving without a license! You cost me a ''fortune'', man! You ruined my summer! You ruined my ''life''!
** Later, Monique gives Dexter an earful when she discovers his PonziScheme to take most of the profit from Ed's sauce.
-->'''Monique:''' I know what this is, it's the contract you had Ed sign, y'know, the one you take most of ''his'' money? The money that ''he's'' supposed to get for ''his'' sauce?
-->'''Dexter:''' No... yes. Look, I was just trying--
-->'''Monique:''' You know, I can't believe you take advantage of someone who trusted you. How can you take advantage of a sweet and generous guy like Ed? And after he got you a ''job''?
-->'''Dexter:''' It ain't even like that! I only wanted--
-->'''Monique:''' Oh, I ''know'' what you wanted! You're not Ed's friend, you're just using him to scam a little cash on the side... you must feel really good about yourself. But don't worry, I'm not gonna tell Ed that you're cheating him.
-->'''Dexter:''' (Beat) Why not?
-->'''Monique:''' Because it would hurt him too much.\\
Otis even chimes in with one simple word for Dexter: "Punk!"
* RuleOfFunny: The reason behind a number of things.
* RunningGag: Dexter's teacher's property keeps getting smashed, crashed, and run over. All mostly because of Dexter and Ed.
* SeeYouInHell: "Okay! Seeya there!"
* SeriousBusiness: "From now on, your life... is Mondo Burger. You can forget about your friends, you can forget about your family. Because Kurt is now both your mother ''and'' your father."
** Which leads to a wonderful GettingCrapPastTheRadar line:
-->'''Dexter''': Kurt must look awfully strange naked.
* SkewedPriorities: Dexter's upset because he has to get a summer job? Dude, you're lucky you didn't go to ''prison for driving without a license!''
** Just to hammer home how skewed his priorities are, he ''did'' almost go to prison, because his teacher (whose car he totaled) almost called the police on him. It was Dexter ''himself'' who came up with the summer job idea so he could pay for his teacher's car; his teacher agreed to that mostly because Dexter would hate it, so he didn't call the police. So not only are Dexter's priorities skewed with him being upset about his summer job, but he has a summer job ''because his teacher was being merciful''!
* SmugSnake: Kurt, again.
* StraightMan: Dexter
* StormingTheCastle: Dexter and Ed's infiltration of Mondo Burger at the end.
* ThirdPersonPerson[=/=]WhosOnFirst: Kurt
-->'''Ed:''' Who's Kurt?\\
'''Kurt:''' I'm Kurt.\\
'''Ed:''' I'm Ed.\\
'''Kurt:''' I'm aware!\\
'''Ed:''' You said you were Kurt.
** [[DumbassHasAPoint He is]] [[{{Pun}} curt]].
* TimmyInAWell: A Subversion with a dog running up to Ed, who reads his barkings as "A bunch of clowns are stranded on the highway with a broken radiator". Dexter tells him not to be stupid and that the dog's just hungry. At the end of the scene, GilliganCut to a bunch of clowns, standing by a broken car, wondering where the dog went.
* TooDumbToLive: Ed; It's a wonder how he manages to keep his job given the number of customers he puts off through the film through his sheer stupidity.
* TooDumbToFool: The efforts of the HoneyTrap to get the secret sauce from Ed fail because Ed doesn't realize he's being seduced
* WeCanRuleTogether: Kurt attempts to get Ed to work for him by promising a higher salary. His stupidity prevents him from taking the offer.
** Not only his stupidity, but Dexter warned him if Kurt gets the sauce Good Burger would go out-out-business. And because Ed loves Good Burger so much, he won't work with him.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Dexter and Ed dress up as women in order to sneak into Mondo Burger.
** Ed took it too far by [[FanDisservice wearing a corset and stockings]].
