This ensemble comedy love story chronicles the adventures and misadventures of a group of aspiring actors who wait tables at a popular New York City eatery called "Peter's Backyard." Pitted against the New York culture jungle, the crew serves up a prix fixe of artistic trauma, comedic insanity, and thespian lust while struggling to keep their lives from coming unglued in the urban warfare of the survival of the artist.

OUTSTANDING. Inventive, fresh, and laugh-out-loud funny.
Ever been to an independent film festival? Can be a real mixed bag - experimental stuff, the requisite foreign fare, a few obscure shorts with bizarre plots and bad lighting. But there are always a few good films too... and if you're really lucky, you'll catch a flick that simply blows you away. For me, "The Waiting Game". WOW. Not only is it a completely fresh take on what could have been food for cliche, it is bold, surprisingly funny, and thoroughly entertaining from start to finish. Strong performances from the ensemble cast effect a genuine chemistry, although it is perhaps ironic that the unfamiliar faces add to the film's appeal. Writer/director Ken Liotti deserves big "attaboy" for an engaging plot that refuses to settle for predictability but always delivers on cue. In short, "The Waiting Game" is a keeper. It is an outstanding accomplishment by any measure and it easily ranks as one of the best independent films I've ever seen.
