Release: January 27, 2009

Film: Good Burger (1997)

This review contains examples of:

  • Actually Pretty Funny: At the very end of the review:
    Dexter: Hey, man, about the contract, why don't we just forget about it? (rips the contract in half)
    Ed: You don't wanna be partners?
    Dexter: No, see...
    Ed: Is it because I'm black?
    Critic: Aaah! A funny joke! (falls down)
  • Big "SHUT UP!": The Critic repeatedly shouts this to Ed, who keeps saying "Bloopity" over and over.
  • Call-Back: When Mr. Wheat shoves Dexter onto his car (and looks like he's humping him from that angle), The Critic freaks out and shouts, "I have no choice! Elephant!", to which the Burger King appears. This gag was first used in the NickComs review.
  • Demon Head: Critic gets one of these at the end when Ed does his catchphrase.
    Ed: Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?
    Critic: You certainly can Ed, you certainly can.
    Slams his fists and changes his head to a demon
    Critic(in demonic voice: DIE!
  • Funny Background Event: He points out one shot where Abe Vigoda is just wandering aimlessly in the background. "Could someone give Abe some direction back there? He's the one good thing in this movie, and I think he's about to go pee in the corner!"
  • Godwin's Law: Critic compares the scene where Kurt is giving the employees a dictator-like speech, with speeches by the Fuhrer, complete with fast food related English subtitles. "HEIL MONDO BURGER!" He later calls Mondo Burger "Hitler Burger".
    Hitler: And don't forget the fries with that! God HELP you if you forget the fries with that!
  • Manipulative Editing: The scene of Ed saying "Bloopity" over and over is edited to seem longer than it actually is.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Invoked, when the Critic is outraged to see Abe Vigoda pulling one of these, to the point of acting like he must have been just as senile as his character.
  • Record Needle Scratch: When the Critic first sees Abe Vigoda.
  • Running Gag: The tumbleweed rolling through the scene when a bad joke is seen in the movie. On the third instance, the tumbleweed grows a mouth and says, "You know what? Fuck it." and walks off-screen in protest.
  • Sting: When The Critic sees that Shaq is in the movie.
  • Up to 11: The Critic describes the "Bloopity" scene as the "Eleventh Circle" of Hell, said to be so repulsive even Dante refused to record it.
