Waiting...

from Film Forum, 10/13/05

A crass comedy about food service, Waiting… is being pelted with rotten tomatoes from all manner of film critics this week.

The promotional materials describe it as "a hilarious comedy about frustrated waiters, stingy tippers and dicey food" and "a hysterical, behind-the-scenes look at the restaurant industry, and an affectionate ode to those lost, and thoroughly unproductive, days of youth."

Christian critics think differently. David DiCerto (Catholic News Service) calls it "an unappetizing and unfunny menu of trashy sex jokes and gross sight gags."

Marcus Yoars (Plugged In) says, "As far as accurately portraying the grimy underbelly of the food industry, Waiting…. hits the nail on the head. … But absolutely none of that makes this plot-less, pointless, puerile and profane movie worthwhile. Scores of even mediocre movies have captured the tone of a culture or topic with remarkable precision while avoiding the deep-sea dive this film takes into extreme vulgarity and tastelessness."
