The bitter, vengeful world of waiting tables gets the Clerks treatment in Waiting.... A new employee (John Francis Daley, Freaks and Geeks) gets trained at Shenanigan's, a banal theme restaurant where the bored employees play a game of flaunting their genitals. The staff includes a snarky waiter (Ryan Reynolds, Van Wilder, The Amityville Horror) who lusts after the underage hostess; a waiter suffering from crippling pee-shyness (Robert Patrick Benedict, Threshold); an oracular dishwasher (Chi McBride, Roll Bounce); and a conflicted waiter named Dean (Justin Long, Dodgeball), who's just been offered a promotion to assistant manager--a job that offers more money, but threatens to trap him at Shenanigan's for the rest of his life. Waiting... is a loose shamble of a movie--the only thing resembling a story is Dean's life crisis--but that's part of its charm. It's a tricky thing to depict tedium without being tedious, but Waiting... pulls it off; some jokes smack of forced sitcom writing, but most of the humor feels genuine, as if it came from writer/director Rob McKittrick's personal experience. A future cult film. Also featuring Anna Faris (Lost in Translation), Luis Guzman (The Limey), and rabidly adored stand-up comic Dane Cook as..a cook. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Always remember the cardinal rule of eating out: Never mess with people who handle your food! Ryan Reynolds (VAN WILDER), Anna Farris (the SCARY MOVIE series) and Justin Long (DODGEBALL: A TRUE UNDERDOG STORY) star in this hilarious comedy about the band of mischievous waiters, waitresses and cooks just waiting to show guests how extraordinary the service at ShenaniganZ restaurant can be.

Few movies drive home a point as sharply as this one does. Yep, I will never, ever be mean or angry with a waiter or food preparer again.

"Waiting" is definitely one of those F*** Bomb a minute, gross out sexual humor sort of movies. But what makes it stand out from the majority of these usually brainless and nearly unwatchable movies is the sharply written script by first time writer/director Rob McKittrick. McKittrick knows his subject, as he was writing from personal experience. The characters are well fleshed out and recognizable, and the dialogue is quite funny and intelligent. The ensemble cast - Ryan Reynolds, Anna Faris, and Justin Long among them - do a great job.

As others have already mentioned, "Waiting" is like "Office Space", in that it is a movie focused on one peculiar micro-culture of our modern society. Instead of Cubical-ville, the characters live in the world of those familiar chain restaurants with the ersatz instant "history" and "character" stuck to the walls, where the waiters gather at your table to sing "Happy Birthday". Think T.G.I.F. or Bubba Gump, more upscale than Denny's or Carrow's, less upscale than Macaroni Grill (the local one here has someone, usually the head waiter or a cute girl, sing "Happy Birthday" in Italian, as an aria).

And, I now appreciate so much more the budget steakhouses like Ponderosa/Bonanza that show you the cooks grilling the steaks right in front of the customers. Great idea, all restaurants should do that...

Yes, this movie is what happens after the "coming of age" movie, when the kids leave the comforts of home to figure out what to do with the rest of their lives. Have you noticed how the people in these sorts of jobs are usually young, usually turn over constantly? It's a way station in life, the entry point into the cold, hard, realities of our fiercely competitive society.

Be kind to them all, while they figure it out...

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it's really like that October 24, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was interested in seeing the film Waiting because I had been a waitress for 20 years, and wanted to see if the film was going to honestly reveal what actually goes on in the kitchen and the server station. After viewing the video and getting tired from laughing so much I can say, YES! IT'S ALL TRUE! IT IS REALLY LIKE THAT!. Speaking as a former professional server, I'm sure this film will open the eyes of (and perhaps frighten) restaurant patrons. It was all familiar to me, from the examples of customers the servers love--or, love to hate, to the behavior of the manager, and onward to the realtionships and personal lives of the employees. Did I enjoy my job and have as much fun and frustration as these workers? Yes, and if you ask anyone who has worked this type of job and seen this film I'm certain they will give you the same answer. I'm not going to be specific in the review because to tell anything about the situations you will see is to spoil the surprise effect of seeing what goes on while you are eating your meal. When we sit down and are served, the type of service we receive is always one of the topics of conversation. This movie reveals what is said when the people being served provide the topic of conversation for the servers. Watch the special features too, because you'll learn about the writer/director. He was a server and uses examples from his experiences. If you decide to buy this video, read this review again before you watch it. It will definitely add another dimention to the humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! May 26, 2012
By Joe R
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie on comedy central, but they censored so much out of it, i decided to just spend $7 and buy it. Well worth it, this movie is hilarious. Not a family movie, but for people who have worked in a restaurant, it makes you laugh so hard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless comedy. February 8, 2006
Format:DVD
This movie is priceless, if you've ever worked in a restaurant this movie will be hauntingly familar to you. I worked as a server for about a year and change, and this is exactly what my life was like in that time period (minus the show your johnson game). I've never laughed as hard as I did watching this movie. It captures exactly how annoying and mean customers can be, and how naive they are to think you won't mess with them back. I mean obviously you can't yell at them or anything, so of course you mess with the food! And this movie shows this perfectly (and admitedly much more drasticly than real life). But as Ryan Reynolds character says (and its true) "Don't Mess with the people who handle your food." Its just not smart. So funny.

Words honestly can't even begin to describe just how realistic and funny this flick is. I would say that, for me anyways, it now joins "Clerks" and "Office Space" in what from this day forward will be known as "The I Hate My Job" trilogy, and as the 3 best comedies ever!

4.0 out of 5 stars A$$h*le! Shenanigan's! March 28, 2006
Format:DVD
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"!
