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

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

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

A silly, awkward, but sometimes very funny movie.

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.

If McKittrick didn't work at a restaurant himself, he must have lived with someone who did.

A new classic of the 'sucky job' subgenre.
October 7, 2005
An obvious but undeniably funny mix of National Lampoon's Animal House and Clerks, writer-director Rob McKittrick's feature debut is a comedy for those without a gag reflex and for shut-ins who never plan to eat in a restaurant ever again.

McKittrick's relentless vulgarity is wearing, but he's a strong visualist who keeps his shoestring-budget film looking fresh.

This movie's two goals are to be over-the-top funny and remind audience members what it feels like to be in your early 20s without a plan, and it's a complete success in both areas.

The movie is best when it stops trying to be outrageous and simply goes about documenting the awful universals of the food-service experience.
October 7, 2005
Waiting makes us wait too long between laughs. But its sly awareness of the people and the work might transport you back to that Pizza Hut, Olive Garden or T.G.I. Friday's in your own "Order up!" past.

Don't expect a message. Waiting is one thing and one thing only: rudely, profanely, obnoxiously funny.

Waiting... is rude, crude, childish and stupid, which is pretty much everything you want in a gross-out humour movie.

Ryan Reynolds' new comedy is like going to one of those T.G.I. Fridays-esque pub-restaurants that it spoofs: It's just okay, but it might leave you a bit queasy afterward.

If you're looking for a hefty serving of rude fun with a side of light meaning, order up Waiting.

It lays out a hearty, all-you-can-laugh buffet, served by some very fresh, in both senses of the word, waitstaff.

Its particular brand of puerile humor is often well-played enough to earn laughs -- though it could still use some improvement.
