Last night, I watched Waiting, starring Ryan Reynolds. His greatest claim to fame, thus far, has been as Burke on Two Guys and a Girl (formerly Two Guys, a girl, and a pizza place) or as National Lampoon's Van Wilder.

If you've ever served at a restaraunt, this movie is for you. However, if you haven't, don't watch this movie. You'll just find it gross, and probably not want to eat out for a while.

This movie epitomized the classic server crew. Everyone is crazy...and you have to do weird things to amuse yourself. Customers suck. Tips suck. It all sucks. But you do it anyway, because you need money.

The creepy manager's office was a nice touch. It was perfect. Looking more like a storage closet, it was exactly what the manager's office at Bertucci's used to look like.

The cooks, as in real life, were complete freaks. And, just like their real life counterparts, they displayed more sexual deviance than the rest of the crew.

The hostess, as it always seems, was complete jailbait.

Meanwhile, the penis showing game was hysterical. Raunchy, but hysterical.

The all knowing dishwasher was a new trend for me. There was always that weird guy who knew how to deal with everyone else's problems. However, in my personal experience, the dishwasher was an older man, in his mid 50s or so, of latino descent, who formerly served as a member of Hell's Angel's in Newark. Jefe, as I called him, spoke little English, and was not an oracle as Bishop was in this movie.

Therefore, I know this review is limited...but it makes perfect sense. If you ever waited tables and are into raunchy humor, then watch it. If you haven't or aren't, pass it up.

I'll make a comment here. This is the WORST MOVIE EVER. Please do not waste the hour and a half of your life watching this movie. Try something else that you might not be scarred for life from watching. If you still choose to watch it, don't say I didn't warn you.
