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>

Goofs

In one scene in the manager's office, you see Dan looking at the calendar, and he moves a post-it note for a tax audit to a different date. After that, throughout the movie, the date that the post-it note is on changes, and then towards the end of the movie, the post-it note is gone completely. See more »

Sequel or Spin-off?
21 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rob McKittrick returns as screenwriter but without Monty (Ryan Reynolds), Serena (Anna Faris), Amy (Kaitlin Doubleday) and Mitch (John Francis Daley) this doesn't feel at all like the same environment. Justin Long's cameo didn't make up for anything.

It felt more like a spin-off than a sequel. It's jokes are unfunny and strained the movie's runtime. It felt like it was more near three hours. I couldn't wait for it to end. I didn't laugh once during it's entirety.

Calvin's new persona was overdone. It seemed like he changed into Monty whereas in the last film, he despised and loathed Monty. Omitting Mitch was a terrible move. He was a great character. Addition of Ta Ta's and the storyline of the restaurant going under and then being started up elsewhere was tame.

Years have passed by and now the restaurant is no longer anything. Waiting was a funny film with lots of great jokes. This film seems more like a part of American Pie's franchise. It gives off the vibe of teenager jokes that are lost on the audience.

It's no surprise this wasn't good enough to hit theaters. I would strongly recommend people skipping this and picking up the first film, only. This one isn't worth the time.
