Critic Reviews for Still Waiting...
A thoroughly and pervasively disagreeable followup...March 19, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
A dreadful movie, and worse, if you can believe this one, something of a disappointment. With nothing new to offer the world of restaurant parody, this needless sequel is more skilled at lowering IQs than generating laughs.February 9, 2009 | Rating: D- | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for Still Waiting...
Mar 14, 2015All of the long-lasting charm (and the actual humour) of the first film fall by the wayside in this direct-to-video sequel.Gimly M Super Reviewer
Feb 09, 2010The story is a bit weak as well. Whereas in the first film, amidst all the dirty jokes, there was a story about that point in your life where you have to ask yourself "Just where am I going?": Still Waiting doesn't seem to have anything other than the "are they gonna make enough money?" plot. You'd think they would, especially with the new girl at the Wing Shack subplot, but it's just not there.It's a weak sequel overall and the cast wasn't as likable. I really loved the Original. But this is an awful attempt to repeat the Original. I can't believe its the same guy who wrote the first one. Well there is no plot going, some random scenes here and there to fill up the time. All the characters are simply lame. There is not a single laugh in its entire run. The thing about the First one was all the characters were funny and good performances by everyone in the pack. Not to mention Ryan Reynolds (at his best after Van Wilder) with his Lines. Its not like expecting the same as First one, but this has nothing to offer. You can give this one a miss. Years have passed by and now the restaurant is no longer anything. Waiting was a funny film with lots of great jokes. This film seems more like a part of American Pie's franchise. It gives off the vibe of teenager jokes that are lost on the audience. It's no surprise this wasn't good enough to hit theaters. I would strongly recommend people skipping this and picking up the first film, only. This one isn't worth the time. This movie basically took everything that was good about the first one and made it less interesting and engaging. The cameos was okay just not that great and sort of pointless with the return of some the cast from the first movie, in fact this sequel is pointless. Written by Rob McKittrick, who also wrote and directed the first film, "Still Waiting..." is really just more shenanigans at the fictional "Shenaniganz" restaurant. Like your typical food-service job, the faces always change, which is convenient, because for this installment, big names like Ryan Reynolds, Anna Faris and Dane Cook couldn't be pulled. Aside from a wealth of cameos and bit parts from the rest of the cast of the original flick, this one is filled with all new characters. The film walks a fine line, trying to service it's original audience by cramming as many characters from the previous film in, as well as establishing and developing a whole new cast. Unfortunately, in the case of the new cast, it doesn't pan out so well. Some of the characters work, but are under-developed, such as Tania Raymonde in the role of Amber, or even the slightly larger role of John Michael Higgins as Dennis. Elsewhere, though, the characters serve either a cheap punchline, or are otherwise recycled from the first film. It's sad that a new film with an all-new cast is only enjoyable when players from the last one drop by for a visit. This new cast of characters is, for the most part, bland, unlikeable, unfunny and just plain useless. Thankfully, the film is still enjoyable, if not a bit redundant. Luis Guzman, Chi McBride, David Koechner, Rob Benedict, Andy Milonakis, Max Kasch and Vanessa Lengies all return, but it is Alanna Ubach -- reprising the role of the in-conquerable Naomi -- who really steals the show. Thankfully, she's a big character in the film, and if it weren't for her return, this movie wouldn't be half as great as it is. Justin Long, pops in briefly to drag down the mood, but to also take a jab at the character he played in the first film, as well as any other film he's been in. Think his character in "Zack & Miri Make A Porno" but more depressed. No doubt, the film is filled with plenty of food-service in-jokes and enough gross-out humor to satisfy, even if it drops the ball on telling an interesting story with it's new characters. Thanks to a returning cast, as well as solid direction by Jeff Balis (who served as a producer for the first film), "Still Waiting..." is a worthy refill. It's nowhere near as potent as "Waiting..." There's still enough on the menu for those who crave a nice, nasty story revolving around a restaurant, and to that end, it holds up. Definitely in the spirit of the first one, just missing a few crucial elements to make it a classic. With a new restaurant comes a new cast of characters. There's Agnew - a young waiter who's so sarcastic and hateful that he doesn't even realize he's slowly turning into a racist; His girlfriend, Allison, who just started working at Ta-Ta's; Joshua - a guy who's so overworked that he has nightmares about his job; Hank - the bartender who dreams of hitting the big time with his band; Amber - the waitress working to pay her tuition, and Mason - the young cook with a lisp who's hopelessly in love with Amber. There's also a few returning characters. Like Naomi, in all her spiteful alcoholic glory. And Calvin, who's gone from being a love-struck loser to total ladies man and manager of Ta-Ta's. Other old faces show up as well, but I don't want to spoil it for you. The characters are, sadly, not near as good as the original Shenanigan's gang. It's no fault of the actor's either, The mostly unknown cast make the best with what they've been given. The characters this time around are just not as interesting. For example, I could've done completely without the Joshua character and would've like to have seen more of the Mason-Amber mini-plot. On the last night of the fiscal quarter, Dennis, Shenanigan's manager, will be promoted to district manager if they have a $9000 day. To motivate the crew, he tells them the restaurant will close if they don't meet this goal. His competition is next door: Ta-Ta's, a bar with scantily clad waitresses, managed by the newly self-confident Calvin. At Ta-Ta's, it's Allison's first day; she's nervous. At Shenanigan's, Mason, a cook, is trying his best to be cool, without success. As the shift wears on, each employee faces his worst fears, and Dennis tries to learn how to attract women. Next door, Calvin and Allison make self discoveries. It all ends at the post-shift party.Sergio E Super Reviewer
Oct 16, 2009clues to fellow comedy lovers that what you rented is not a "comedy": 1) if its a sequel all the funny actors are gone, while the asshats are back! 2) if its a sequel and the title is the same with one extra word for extra wow 3) if Luis Guzman is not only in it, but on the cover for lack of better-knowns 4) if the writer ran out of ideas and changed all unfunny dialogue to "fuck!" 5) if everyone is on the cover laughing at their own jokes to make you join in 6) if your "comedy" is a sequel, remake, Dane Cook move, American Pie movie that has nothing to do with american pie, National Lampoon movie that has less lampooning and more poon, or a movie shown on 'comedy central', the movie you have rented or seen on t.v. has never made anyone laugh ever. unless they... well... unless theyre you. in which case piss off.Coxxie M Super Reviewer
