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 »

A shapeless farrago.
18 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

"Waitress!" is about as bad as a comedy can get. It can barely be called a movie; it's more like a collage of randomly connected images and scenes that don't build from each other or move any sort of plot forward. And the editing is so rapid it may give you a headache. I'd give this dreadful film 0.5 out of 4 stars.
