Good Burger (1997)

"Good Burger" (1997) is a comedy film starring Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson. The movie is from the Nickelodeon teen comedy sketch show "All That," which jump-started Kenan and Kel's careers. The TV show and the duo were staple figures for teenagers in the mid-90s. The pair were so popular they earned a spin-off show called "Kenan & Kel," which they filmed "Good Burger" during the series' run. The movie made over $23 million on an $8.5 million budget, making it a box-office success. Today the film is a cult classic and a nostalgic reminder of the glorious mid-90s. The movie also featured several celebrity cameos and appearances from some of the "All That" cast. ALegendary comedian Sinbad stars in the movie, another prominent face in family films during the 90s.
