Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average Watching the movie is like having one of these wretched jobs, with the difference that after work the employees can get wasted but we can only watch.

USA Today Full Review
Poor Five or 10 minutes in, the picture has exhausted its material, but first-time writer/director Rob McKittrick is merciless.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 89 moviegoer opinions. This movie is obviously targeted at teen and twentysomething males and they lovewd it. Nearly all of them rated it very high. I CAN EASILY RECOMMEND "WAITING" TO TEEN AND TWENTYSOMETHING MALES! As for adult males, about half really enjoyed it. The rest thought it was average to below average.

Teen female opinions were quite good. Approximately half really enjoyed "Waiting." Twentysomething females enjoyed "Waiting" nearly as much as the teen males.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A waiter for four years since high school, Dean (Justin Long) has never questioned his job at ShenaniganZ. But when he learns that Chett, a high school classmate, now has a lucrative career in electrical engineering, he's thrown into turmoil about his dead-end life. Dean's friend Monty (Ryan Reynolds) is in exactly the same boat, but he couldn't care less. More concerned with partying and getting laid, Monty is put in charge of training Mitch (John Francis Daley), a shy new employee. Over the course of one chaotic shift, Mitch gets to know the rest of ShenaniganZ's quirky staff: Monty's tough-talking ex-girlfriend, Serena (Anna Faris); ShenaniganZ's over-zealous manager, Dan (David Koechner); and head cook Raddimus (Luis Guzman), who's obsessed with a senseless staff-wide competition known only as "The Game”...
