The Movie: Good Burger
Where You Can Stream It: Netflix
The Pitch: Good Burger follows Kenan Thompson as Dexter Reed, who ends up in a bit of a pickle when he gets in a car accident with his teacher. With no driver’s license and his mother out of town on business, Dexter must get a summer job at the local fast food joint Good Burger. The only problem is a new Mondo Burger just opened up across the street, owned by a complete douchenozzle who is threatening to put Good Burger out of business. So Dexter is left with no choice but to team up with Good Burger’s loyal but dimwitted employee Ed (Kel Mitchell) to figure out a way to keep the place afloat and maybe take out Mondo Burger at the same time.
Why It’s Essential Viewing: Good Burger is by no means some kind of masterpiece. It was critically panned when it was released back in 1997, and it made $23.7 million at the box office, so it was hardly a hit. But if you grew up on Nickelodeon, then Good Burger was absolutely your jam, and I’m happy to tell you that it’s a movie worth a second look. Read More »

Over the past few weeks, we’ve heard about a variety of plans by Nickelodeon to cash in on all the nostalgia being felt by children of the 90s for all the programming they used to watch on the kids’ cable network. There’s been talk of reviving some of the fan favorite Nicktoons in some capacity, a live-action/animated hybrid movie at Paramount and 90s programming block called The Splat coming in October. Yes, nostalgia for a decade that ended just 15 years ago is alive and well.
Now The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon wanted to get in on all the 90s fun by having a Good Burger reunion, featuring the return of Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, who originated these exact same characters on the Nickelodeon sketch show All That, which was basically Saturday Night Live for kids.
