Waiting movie is stomach-churning

Waiting

Director: Rob McKittrick

Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Justin Long, Anna Faris, John Francis Daley, Luis Guzman

Cert: 16

You’ll probably skip the dinner part of your Saturday night date after watching this.

It’s a day-in-the-life tale of what goes on in Shenanigans restaurant … and it’s completely stomach-churning.

New recruit Daley is shown round the establishment by playboy Reynolds and introduced to the sort of staff no restaurant would ever think of employing.

The problem is that if the film is intended to be a comedy it isn’t all that funny and if it’s meant to be something more substantial it isn’t that either.

Maybe you have to have actually worked in a restaurant to understand the behind-the-scenes shenanigans … after this, you’ll never want to ask to see a menu again.

Star Rating: 2/5
