Movie Review: Waiting... (2005)

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Anna Faris, Justin Long
Director: Ron McKittrick
Genre: Comedy
Rating: R

The movie details the goings on at a restaurant called Shenaniganz. That is a perfect name for the place. All of the employees try to keep themselves entertained while working. The leader of the bunch is Monty, played by Ryan Reynolds. There is a lot of hi-jinx, games and pranks. Some can be pretty gross, but darn funny.

Waiting… is a funny and raunchy comedy. It has a good amount of laugh out loud moments. The cast of characters who work there add to the humor. Anna Faris from the Scary Movie series, Justin “the Mac guy” Long, and Dane Cook highlight the crew. Luis Guzman plays one of the cooks who is partial to playing games. It is definitely not for the easily offended, that's why I liked it.

For any fan of Ryan Reynold’s other films (e.g. Just Friends, Van Wilder, etc.). Oh, be careful when you return your food and beware the goat!
