John Michael Higgins,
While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with -- a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
Kevin, Sam and Rob are founding members of a theoretical group which pulls off heists. Leo, a gangster, blackmails them into pulling off a real multi-million dollar heist. Now it's up to them to get out alive.
Dave is a married man with two kids and a loving wife, and Mitch is a single man who is at the prime of his sexual life. One fateful night while Mitch and Dave are peeing in a fountain, lightning strikes and they switch bodies.
Andy Milonakis is a man who has it all: a comfy home, an outrageous sense of humor, and his own MTV television show complete with oddball skits, celebrity guests, and amusing pranks on the public at large.
It's the dinner shift at Shenanigan's. Dan, the clueless boss, assigns Mitch, 22, a trainee, to Monty, the smooth talker who chases girls for one-night stands. Dean, a waiter, also 22, feels that life is passing him by. Dan offers him the assistant manager job and gives him until midnight to decide. Other waiters, cooks, and bus boys have their issues and personalities. Bishop, the dishwasher, is their counselor. During this shift, Monty may learn something, Dean makes his decision, Dan makes a play for the not-yet-18 hostess, customers get their comeuppance, the guys all play the in-house homophobic flashing game, the gals demonstrate why they won't, and Mitch gets the last word.

As an April Fools' Day joke, director Rob McKittrick and actor Luis Guzmán staged a "diva fight" on set. During the filming of the scene where Calvin imagines his co-workers cheering him on at the urinal, Guzmán pretended to ditch a line from the script in favor of his own line. The fight was so realistic that the other actors on set became very uncomfortable and quiet when Guzmán "stormed" out. See more »
After Dean receives the business card and crumples it up, he throws it to the ground. In the next shot it is still in his hand. See more »
[talking to Monty]
So... you know how when you're walking by a group of people, and you hear them laughing, you sometimes get that paranod, self- conscious feeling that maybe they're laughing about you, when they're really not? Well in your case, they really are.

At the very end of the credits there is an "uber special thanks" section which contains Rob McKittrick's thank yous. The most notable ones being "God, for not existing," and "Kevin Smith, for providing the world with 'Clerks', the movie that made my movie seem possible. Randal is one of the greatest characters ever." See more »
In many ways this movie can be compared to another successful cult comedy by the name of "Office Space". Both films are about what really happens in a stressful working environment. While "Office Space" and "Waiting" do share similar plots, first time director Rob McKittrick seems to have more of a flare for slacker comedy than Mike Judge.
What also makes this comedy stand out is the great casting and colorful characters. The always funny Ryan Reynolds leads the crew of misfits including Anna Faris, Justin Long and the incredibly hilarious Luiz Guzman.This movie can get a tad immature at times, but those who love movies like "The 40-Year Old Virgin" and "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" will absolutely worship this picture.
