Movie Reviews

Everyone who has a job can relate to the characters!!!
F. Seara | New York | 10/08/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I found many similarities between the characters in the film and the people I work with. Everyone has a person who thinks they know it all, a smart-ass, a cursing-machine, a so-called ladies-man, the flirt, etc. We have many instances with irritations on the job. We've met customers who you hate, love, mean, friendly, and always wanted to say something to them, but risked losing their jobs. Sometimes a job is all you have.

Many critics call this an immature, gross-out snore, but I call it a hilarious, gross-out reality. Maybe some of the things don't happen in the restaurant, but we will think twice before insulting or harassing the waiter.

Waiting has a cast of young comedians who know how to have fun. Ryan Reynolds plays his usual Van Wilder style sacastic character, Anna Faris is the girl looking to help, fans of Dan Cook will love him as the cook. The rest of the cast represent parts of the "Office Space" characters. The movie definitely has its gross-out moments, but the dialogue is hilarious.

If you liked films like Van Wilder, Office Space, and American Pie, you will love this film. This will become a cult classic next to Dazed and Confused. This is a movie to watch with your friends as there are many one-liners. "Welcome to Thunderdome, b****!""

"It's hard to believe that "Waiting ..." is billed as a movie. Most movies have, oh, a plot. But who needs a plot when you have penis jokes?

A shameless excuse to stir together a group of stagnant character archetypes and low-brow one-liners (mostly involving sex), "Waiting ..." has a pretty specific target audience. I guess I wasn't in it. And I'm not sure that those who ARE in that target audience (13 year old males) would (or should) be allowed to watch a film that involves frontal nudity, underaged sex, and the consumption of pubic hairs. If, somehow, a prepubescent male gets his hands on this flick, I can guarantee him a good time.

God help him, though, if he identifies with any of the characters, none of which seem like anything resembling normal. There's the too-cool-for-school Monty (Ryan Reynolds playing Ryan Reynolds), the stoner bus boys (Milonakis and Kasch, who also perform a moderately amusing music video over the credits), the controlling manager who has made his failure a badge of honor (David Koechner playing David Koechner), and, of course, a cadre of vengeful and horny cooks (Luis Guzman and Dane Cook actually do a pretty good job of embracing their poorly drawn places in the film). Chi McBride (I, Robot) is the pontificating dishwasher, Anna Faris (Scary Movie) is the slightly slutty waitress, and Justin Long (Dodgeball) gives us the closest thing to a story arc with his Dean, a 22 year old who is already suffering a mid-life crisis, God help his whiny soul.

It's really just another day in the life of a "family" restaurant. This one is named, appropriately, Shenaniganz, and it features, as Moe of the Simpsons would say, "a whole lotta crazy crap on the walls" (including a clever Rube Goldberg-esque contraption designed to pour beer into an empty mug; it's demonstrated after the final credits roll). In-between dealing with rude customers and training a newbie (a mostly mute John Francis Daley), the male members of the staff entertain themselves with a game that involves flashing their genitals at other waiters and winning, in the process, the right to kick the others in the butt. No, I'm not kidding.

This is the best that first-time director/writer Rob McKittrick could come up with, and although his love of this debut film is obvious on every juvenile frame, it doesn't translate into much more than people being crude and crazy. In a long personal note during the credits, McKittrick thanks one friend for reading over the script and "showing me where the conversations were contrived." Ha ha. The conversations. Right.

Some critics have compared this movie to others like "Office Space" and "Clerks," but I think that does all of them a disservice. Those other films were trying to break new ground. This one knows its small redundant path and walks it with pride. Those others had witty, snappy dialogue. [...]. Those others had pretty clever plot threads. This one, well, ... did I mention the really cool beer-pouring invention?"
A$$h*le! Shenanigan's!

"So, I get to work both sides of the street; reviewing something I know something about. Hanging out with the staff in the restaurants.

And I can honestly say, yup, that's pretty much restaurant folk down to a tee.

You've got your insecure guy who's never seen with a girl and who all the new girls learn right away to manipualte.

You've got your prankster who's fooled the boss into thinking he's a great employee so he gets to train all the new people, making them little clones of himself. He's also worked his way through most of the girls on staff.

The foul mouthed, always angry girl who gets down right scaring from time to time...and yet always is pretty dang funny.

The strung out busboys, the jerk-off cooks, really the only thing I've been missing out on is the game. That'd been great.

Here's the thing, 90% of the stuff in this movie happens in restaurants all the time. While I encourage you to continue to go out to eat (as it's how I make my livlihood), I also encourage you to remember the age old axims "Treat others as you would want to be treated", and "Ignorance is bliss"!"
