Trivia

This movie was shot on location in a restaurant called Marty's in Manhattan. The staff at Marty's would not let the filmmakers shoot the picture during work hours, so the cast and crew had to wait until the restaurant closed and worked from twelve at night until ten in the morning. See more »

"6 feet...and 11 inches!"
7 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I bought Waitress! because I was interested to see Lloyd Kaumfan and the Troma Team's roots before the making of The Toxic Avenger, SGT Kabukiman NYPD, Tromeo and Juliet, and so on. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this movie is not as bad as everyone says it is. Actually, this movie is quite funny. It basically has the same jokes as The Toxic Avenger...just no gore. The movie seems plot less until we start to get into it a little more, and a plot actually evolves as we follow a wanna be actress and a wanna be news reporter. They both find love, and make it yet another love story, only a wild wacky one. The jokes in this film are funny for the most part, especially the "6 feet...and 11 inches" joke which is clearly the funniest part of the film. If you liked The Toxic Avenger, and other stupid comedies, see Waitress! You may or may not be disappointed.
