"We were delighted to collaborate with Paramount in the creation of this extraordinary HD-DVD," added Kim Aubry, Nickelodeon's VP of Technology and Executive Producer of the HD-DVD. "To have the opportunity to take a film that we truly love and spend six months looking through the vaults for interesting 'lost' objects was something too good to pass up. We contacted the original filmmakers in our quest for great HD-DVD extras; and we were led to photographs, tapes, student films and forgotten promotional materials that when viewed today add insight to the film and the filmmaker. Kenan and Kel's new commentary is amazing and we believe will become 'required' viewing for 'Good Burger' buffs and film lovers everywhere."

Good Burger was originally a sketch on the popular children's variety series "All That." Good Burger features acclaimed young actors Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell as two teenagers who have to spend their summer working at a fast food joint. Things get interesting when their restaurant may get shut down due to their new competitor Mondo Burger. The film features cameos from Carmen Electra ("Baywatch"), Shaquille O'Neal (the NBA), and George Clinton (P Funk). Abe Vigoda and Linda Cardelini ("Freaks and Geeks") co-star.

Own this modern classic on April 1, 2007.

Really wasn't that funny in the HD forum and isn't getting any funnier here. Gotta love the humor from 1999 though.

Personally, I think this might just be the highlight of my DVD collection!

But really, I would probably netflix it for the Pete&Peter and Michelle Trackenberg commentary, lol

Will the Original Cut of Good Burger be provided as a supplement on disc 2 with a non-anamorphic transfer?

Not a day goes by that I don't think of when Criterion will give Weekend At Bernie's 2 the treatment it so deserves. Complete with a nice commentary from Terry Kiser.

7 extra hours reinstated into the film! Watching this will be just as long as working a full shift at Burger King!

Man, Good Burger is the BEST FILM EVER.
