Enjoy this film for what it is, not for what it is not.
I quite enjoyed this film. Its fun to see a film that is about Toronto and filmed in Toronto. So many films we see look suspiciously like Toronto, but claim to be set in New York, Chicago or Boston. Having worked in the restaurant industry, I can tell you that the film is the authentic work of someone who has been down that path also. The perpetually aggravated manager, the casual drug use, and the fact that most of the waiter types are trying to make it in entertainment certainly all ring true.
Jon Scarfe, who has continued to work hard in smaller films and good television shows, was particularly fun to watch, and his on screen chemistry with Karen LeBlanc was very, er, enjoyable.
By all means check this film out.
