Storyline

On the last night of the fiscal quarter, Dennis, Shenanigan's manager, will be promoted to district manager if they have a $9000 day. To motivate the crew, he tells them the restaurant will close if they don't meet this goal. His competition is next door: Ta-Ta's, a bar with scantily clad waitresses, managed by the newly self-confident Calvin. At Ta-Ta's, it's Allison's first day; she's nervous. At Shenanigan's, Mason, a cook, is trying his best to be cool, without success. As the shift wears on, each employee faces his worst fears, and Dennis tries to learn how to attract women. Next door, Calvin and Allison make self discoveries. It all ends at the post-shift party. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Has it's flaws, but still enjoyable
2 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

I was a big fan of Waiting. Even though I've never worked in a restaurant, I could somehow relate to the plights and pitfalls of the food service industry. A lot of that had to do with writer Rob McKittrick's great script. Now, years later, Rob has penned the sequel to his cult classic and the results, though not as satisfying as the original, are better than you might think.

Still Waiting moves the action to a new Shenanigans restaurant where manager Dennis is having some problems. Not only is he having trouble with his personal life, but his restaurant is also facing a crisis. They're losing business to the newly-opened Ta-Ta's Wing Shack next door. So much business in fact that corporate is threatening to shut Dennis down unless he can meet his quarterly expectations. He has one last day to make the $9000 he needs to keep his restaurant open and maybe even get a promotion.

With a new restaurant comes a new cast of characters. There's Agnew - a young waiter who's so sarcastic and hateful that he doesn't even realize he's slowly turning into a racist; His girlfriend, Allison, who just started working at Ta-Ta's; Joshua - a guy who's so overworked that he has nightmares about his job; Hank - the bartender who dreams of hitting the big time with his band; Amber - the waitress working to pay her tuition, and Mason - the young cook with a lisp who's hopelessly in love with Amber. There's also a few returning characters. Like Naomi, in all her spiteful alcoholic glory. And Calvin, who's gone from being a love-struck loser to total ladies man and manager of Ta-Ta's. Other old faces show up as well, but I don't want to spoil it for you.

The characters are, sadly, not near as good as the original Shenanigan's gang. It's no fault of the actor's either, The mostly unknown cast make the best with what they've been given. The characters this time around are just not as interesting. For example, I could've done completely without the Joshua character and would've like to have seen more of the Mason-Amber mini-plot.

The story is a bit weak as well. Whereas in the first film, amidst all the dirty jokes, there was a story about that point in your life where you have to ask yourself "Just where am I going?": Still Waiting doesn't seem to have anything other than the "are they gonna make enough money?" plot. You'd think they would, especially with the new girl at the Wing Shack subplot, but it's just not there.

All in all, Still Waiting has it's moments. It's pretty funny and way better than the majority of direct-to-DVD sequels out there. If you loved the original, you'll probably like this one. Key word being "like".
