YMMV: Good Burger
  • Awesome Music: Parliament-Funkadelic's "(Not Just) Knee Deep"
    • Less Than Jake's "We're All Dudes" with Kel Mitchell providing vocals. They had never played the song in concert, except for a show in Chicago in 2008. And who should join them on stage, but Herbert J. Budworth dressed as Ed!!
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: ...why are the mental patients doing a Michael Jackson style dance number to a George Clinton song?
    • To give the movie at least one memorable moment.
  • Broken Base
  • Critical Dissonance: Compare the negative reaction from critics and how fondly it's remembered today.
  • Critical Research Failure: Auto insurance follows the registered owner of the vehicle, NOT the driver. Sinbad could have filed a claim under Dexter's mother's policy, avoiding all of the events of the story.
  • Cult Classic
  • Ear Worm: "I'm a dude, he's a dude/She's a dude, 'cause we're all dudes. HEY!..."
  • Evil Is Sexy: Roxanne. Kurt and his henchmen may also qualify.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Dexter calling Ed "buddy" and Ed taking it to heart, and Ed buying Dexter a light-up yo-yo with his wages (that are severely depleted because Dexter is scamming him) after he hears Dexter's Disappeared Dad story come to mind.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Ed looks quite a bit like a certain rapper.
    • George Clinton and Sinbad appearing in a movie alongside Kenan Thompson is funny (or funnier) when you realize that George Clinton and Sinbad are two of the many celebrity impressions Kenan Thompson has done on Saturday Night Live. Funnier still when you realize that George Clinton was the first celebrity Kenan Thompson played on SNL.
  • Ho Yay: There's more than quite a bit between Ed and Dexter.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, may I take your order?"
  • Moral Event Horizon: Kurt crosses this when he breaks into Good Burger and puts shark poison in Ed's sauce.
  • Moment Of Awesome: The destruction of the Mondo Burger restaurant.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The burgers with eyes.
    • Kurt's plot to feed people shark poison.
    • The possible side effects of consuming a chemically enlarged Mondo Burger.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: Why, Abe Vigoda? WHY?!
