Learn why you should never send your food back and other valuable lessons in this over-the-top comedy set in the food service industry. Dean (Justin Long) and Monty (Ryan Reynolds) are two longtime friends who work as waiters as Shenanigan's, a self-consciously "fun" chain restaurant. Both have been working at the restaurant since they graduated from high school; it's only recently occurred to Dean that he has nothing to show for the last four years of his life but a community college diploma and his name tag from work, and he's developed a sudden urgency to make something of himself. Monty, on the other hand, is more interested in making time with the women on the wait staff at work than accomplishing anything, though his recent relationship with fellow employee Serena (Anna Faris) has rather dramatically crashed and burned. Over the course of an evening at Shenanigan's, Dean and Monty confront obnoxious customers and train timid new employee Mitch (John Francis Daley) while dealing with wildly eccentric chef Raddimus (Luis Guzman), control-freak manager Dan (David Koechner), and a kitchen full of crazed cooks, prep workers, and dish-washers. Waiting was the first feature film from writer and director Rob McKittrick.

I remember hearing about this and saw the trailer. Years later, finally saw this and it was funny. It does have its weird and alright moments. Good cast.

This movie is great. It's definitely not something you could let your kids see, but it has some incredibly funny moments. Ryan Reynolds is just as funny in this as he was in "Van Wilder" (and just as hot). Anyone who has worked in the food industry can appreciate this comedy.

I'm a big fan of Dane Cook, him and the rest of this cast were perfect together. I watch it every time I need a laugh, and when I need some inspiration to get up, live my life and have some fun.

Then this is the movie for you! I laugh harder every time I see this movie. Just be careful- just when you think it is safe to take a drink, you'll start laughing and shoot your drink through your nose! I laugh even more when I think of people I've seen yell at servers...

Oh gosh this movie was awful. I laughed like once. It was just awkward and lame. Don't waste your time.

fantastic film. Great cast especialy reynolds. Its just like woking at a crazy restaurant anybody who's worked in TGIF or other chains like that will love this movie. Those who haven't need to see this so that maybe you can save yourself from some "unwanted indegestion". Also gives great description of a game no office can be without.

I used to wait tables & all I'm gonna say is that this movie isn't that far from the truth. millions of people go out to eat every day & I often wonder if they actually take the time to think about how they treat ppl who serve them their food? after watchin this movie I bet they will. ha ha ha (evil laugh) very funny movie. i dare all who eat out to buy this one.
