Waiting Reviews

Mark Keizer
Boxoffice Magazine

Scattershot and under the mistaken assumption that vulgarity is its own reward, Waiting isn't about waiting tables. It's about a group of unlikable and obnoxious jerks who have found one roof under which they can be obnoxious and unlikable.

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.

Endlessly, tediously, mind-meltingly worthless.

I completely blame Kevin Smith for the existence of this movie.

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

The difference is Clerks was funny and Waiting is not.

Waiting... serves up a stale dish of dim-witted drivel.

Looking like a high school drama project made for a couple of twenties over a long weekend, Waiting is labored and rarely funny.

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.

There's nothing here but penis jokes and the glorification of statutory rape.

An undercooked, overdone raunchy comedy.

A puerile excuse for humour, perfectly described by one of the characters, in a rare moment of insight, as 'an exercise in retarded homophobic futility.'

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

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

I want Ryan Reynolds' career and his abs ... he'll always get a phone call when Vince Vaughn turns down a role.

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

... don't watch this film unless you have a high tolerance and an undemanding appreciation for penis jokes...

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