Storyline

It's Martha's first night as a waitress in an upscale New York restaurant. Veteran Chloe shows her the ropes and introduces her to the lives of the restaurant staff. Adam, a hopeful playwright, suffers for his art while dealing with a very indecisive (ex-?)girlfriend. Marlon is a cocky young actor, certain that his big break is just around the corner. When the restaurant's obnoxious owner, Simon, brings a special client in for dinner, pressures mount until an explosion seems inevitable. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Medium rare restaurant dramady
28 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

"In The Weeds" is a mediocre ensemble dramady repartee-fest about the staff of a restaurant and their activities during one night's dinner rush. The film offers a solid journeyman cast of familiar faces but relies too much on snappy patter and clever comebacks while trying to build a storyline that is marginal at best, groping for insight and sensitivity which never fully materializes. Nonetheless, there are several crisscrossing plot threads and enough energy and wit to make is a mildly entertaining broadcast watch. (C+) Note - Those interested in a very good drama which also takes place in a restaurant during one night's dinner rush should check out "Dinner Rush" with Danny Aiello.
