“As far back as I can remember, I’ve wanted to run a fast food restaurant.”

Fame, fortune, and french fries rule in this Goodfellas spoof that re-envisions fast food franchises as a posse of salty gangsters bent on America’s destruction. Will the King of Burgers stand up to Ron the Don? Or will he continue to prosper as America’s arteries clog one fry at a time?

Directed by Reuben Guberek. Produced by Jacqueline “Cookie” Walukas. Principal cast: David Philip Reed, Dave Florek, Cathy Prince, Kim Adams, and John Rodiger.
