Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The funniest scene is also the saddest: The kitchen crew, having cleaned up, watching the clock like New Year's, goes nuts when a couple is seated a minute before closing. This is pain."
‑ Darren Reidy, Village Voice
"A puerile excuse for humour, perfectly described by one of the characters, in a rare moment of insight, as 'an exercise in retarded homophobic futility.'"
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"...a spare premise that's utilized to surprisingly positive effect..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Luis Guzman is especially funny as a sex-crazed head cook obsessed with a staff game that becomes a centerpiece of the film's humor."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"For what's essentially a raucous, gross-out comedy, this is a surprisingly tame film."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"You can do gross-out stuff and be funny, but it has to have some decent dialogue and characters."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"McKittrick's relentless vulgarity is wearing, but he's a strong visualist who keeps his shoestring-budget film looking fresh."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"An undercooked, overdone raunchy comedy."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"Some jokes hit their mark, but mostly in "Waiting%u2026," what you're really waiting for is inspiration."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"Despite its flaws, it really is a funny, witty, and suprisingly charming slob comedy"
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
"As in waiting for it to be over."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"This movie's two goals are to be over-the-top funny and remind audience members what it feels like to be in your early 20s without a plan, and it's a complete success in both areas."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"It made me laugh. Out loud, a lot, and wildly, and I'm not ashamed to admit it."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"You'd have more fun actually working in a restaurant. Probably."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"McKittrick neglects to realize that his target audience (males, ages 18-25) presumably aren't interested in seeing or hearing about the male genitalia at any time..."
‑ Kevin Biggers, FilmStew.com
