Violence & Scariness
Though scenes of violence and danger are meant to be humorous, people do get struck by cars, nearly hit by exploding fireworks, frozen for two decades, hit by lightning, bullied, threatened, nearly cut into French fries in a potato processing machine, and in danger in an out-of-control self-driving car. People also take spills, fall from high places, and get hit in the head by heavy objects. A robot goes crazy and shoots lasers from his eyes, exploding objects. A house catches fire.

Parents need to know that Good Burger 2 is the sequel to the popular 1990s movie, reuniting stars/comedians Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. While it has crude humor and language, as well as plenty of violence played for laughs, there are also positive messages about the value of friendship and the pitfalls of greed.

People also take spills, fall from high places, and get hit in the head by heavy objects. A robot goes crazy and shoots lasers from his eyes, exploding objects. A house catches fire.

Is It Any Good?
If you can look past some of the sillier antics and annoying voices, this film has a good heart and conveys some decent messages about friendship and integrity. Good Burger 2 revives the 1997 original, and its fans will surely be excited to see its eccentric characters back for more, all these years later. Mitchell, Thompson, Howery, and Bell are all comical in their over-the-top roles, though Mitchell's Ed is funnier if viewed as single-minded rather than just simple (or even intellectually challenged). Be prepared for plenty of fart and pee jokes, self-referential gags, a slew of cameos, and a cartoonish plot complete with an evil mastermind and goons. Also be ready for some heartening messages about the meaning of true friendship.
