Last year marked the 25th anniversary of Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, which is presumably why filmmaker Reuben Guberek created the 13-minute short film Foodfellas — a Goodfellas parody that tracks the rise and fall of fast-food wise guys Ron the Don and his apprentice, the King of Burgers.
With high production values, plenty of nods to Scorsese’s movie and a voiceover rich with lines like… “The money came pouring in like an extra large double diet soda,” the short is amusing and inventive and chock-full of enough fast-food references to make you ponder grabbing a bacon cheeseburger for your next meal.

Warning: This short film does not come with a side of fries.
