Product Overview

Upon his arrival at Shenaniganz, a suburban chain restaurant bedecked with decorative knick-knacks, new wait staff trainee Mitch (John Francis Daley) is placed under the wing of Monty (Ryan Reynolds), a veteran who first informs his young charge that all male employees engage in a game in which the object is to get others to unwittingly look at your genitals. Unwittingly, Mitch has stumbled into a world where servers--such as angry Naomi (Alana Ubach), and coquettish Serena (Anna Faris), along with a rowdy kitchen staff--led by randy Raddimus (Luis Guzman)--are at constant war with their demanding, low-tipping customers. Meanwhile, waiter Dean (Justin Long) must decide whether to take a promotion to manager or set out for brighter horizons beyond birthday songs and whimsically-named appetizers. The first film from writer-director Rob McKittrick has a low-budget charm that is well suited to the realistic desperation below its crowd-pleasing gross-out humor. Long is a likeable straight man to Reynolds' wisecracking ringleader, while Chi McBride and indie veteran Ubach (CLOCKWATCHERS) add texture in their supporting roles. A cousin in crudity to Kevin Smith's subdivision-themed comedies, WAITING will score a bull's-eye with service industry pros or anyone who prefers their comedy to originate from below the belt.

Review The wait for laughs lasts the entire length of Waiting..., first feature from writer-director Rob McKittrick that aims to be a Clerks-type comedy set in a chain restaurant but ends up somewhere below a Porky's sequel. What talented B-list mainstream thesps like Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris are doing in this C-grade timekiller is a mystery. Even more mysterious is pic's braving theatrical waters when it practically screams "rental."

Review I can imagine a good film based on the bored lives of retail workers whose sex lives afford them some relief. The 40-Year-Old Virgin is a splendid example, and given the slacker mentality of the waiters in Waiting..., Kevin Smith's Clerks leaps to mind. Both of those films begin with fully seen characters who have personalities, possess problems, express themselves with distinctive styles.The characters in Waiting... seem like types, not people. What they do and say isn't funny because someone real doesn't seem to be doing or saying it. Everything that the John Beulshi character did in Animal House proceeded directly from the core of his innermost being: he crushed beer cans against his forehead, because he was a person who needed to, and often did, and enjoyed it and found that it worked for him. You never got the idea he did it because it might be funny in a movie.
