Good Burger (1997)

GOOD BURGER is just as juvenile as anything I've seen since, oh, 
ERNEST RIDES AGAIN.  What can I say about this one?  It kept me 
awake, made me laugh more than once, and held my interest long 
enough that I didn't walk out.  (And my reward for sticking it 
through?  A late appearance by George Clinton as a mental patient 
who gets down with ward-mates in a funky asylum jam.)  This Nickel-
odeon co-production-- based on the shows "Kenan & Kel" and "All 
That"-- is probably perfect fare for anyone under the age of, say, 
ten.  Lots of agreeably stupid stuff, performed by a colorfully 
charming cast, and with nothing particularly offensive, unless you 
overreact to the occasional use of "ass," "hell," or "sucks."  But, 
shit, that's nothing worse than the language used on your average 
episode of "The Simpsons."  And don't miss the animated short that 
precedes, about a quartet of superhero dolls that have to fight an 
attacking baby (voiced by Harry Connick Jr.!) when he threatens a  
concert performance of... the Kiss action figures.  Pretty funny.  
(Rated "G"/95 min.)
