...a spare premise that's utilized to surprisingly positive effect...

An undercooked, overdone raunchy comedy.

It made me laugh. Out loud, a lot, and wildly, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Luis Guzman is especially funny as a sex-crazed head cook obsessed with a staff game that becomes a centerpiece of the film's humor.

Some jokes hit their mark, but mostly in "Waiting%u2026," what you're really waiting for is inspiration.

You'd have more fun actually working in a restaurant. Probably.

For what's essentially a raucous, gross-out comedy, this is a surprisingly tame film.

Despite its flaws, it really is a funny, witty, and suprisingly charming slob comedy

McKittrick neglects to realize that his target audience (males, ages 18-25) presumably aren't interested in seeing or hearing about the male genitalia at any time...

We have to watch [the cast] struggle and squirm just to make each scene not as horrible as the last.

Subplots include a running gag where the guys all compete at flashing their dicks. You know it's a 21st century movie because the characters are self-conscious about their sexism and homophobia.

A silly, awkward, but sometimes very funny movie.

An ugly-looking movie with even uglier attempts at humor.

The only things you'll find on the menu are rancid leftovers.

Ew. "Waiting" longs to shock its audience. And does.

If this movie had a brain, it would take it out and scribble graffiti of the 'for a good time call...' variety on it.

The funniest scene is also the saddest: The kitchen crew, having cleaned up, watching the clock like New Year's, goes nuts when a couple is seated a minute before closing. This is pain.

Rob McKittrick's debut is most successful at its simplest - unflinching in the way a lot of 20somethings talk and act in the company of friends.

You can do gross-out stuff and be funny, but it has to have some decent dialogue and characters.
