"The Wait" does NOT represent Oregon: I spent the whole movie, well, waiting for a plot
17 March 2014 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I knew nothing about "The Wait" when I started watching it. Since I knew that it stars Chloë Sevigny, I assumed that I might like it. Boy was I wrong! The movie has NO plot. It claims to be about some young women who keep their mother in the house after she dies, believing that her soul will stay home, but NOTHING happens in the movie. Once again, a movie filmed in Oregon proves to be a complete embarrassment for the Beaver State: "The Postman" and "Men of Honor" are other examples (I never saw either of those but heard that they were terrible). And then there's the musical that they didn't film in Oregon but it takes place in Oregon: "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". That one has as much to do with Oregon as any Kardashian has to do with talent. When I reviewed in on IMDb, I took the time to mention "Django Unchained", just to trash "7Bf7B".

In conclusion, this is especially an embarrassment for Chloë Sevigny since she's appeared on "Portlandia", a realistic representation of the City of Roses. It's also an embarrassment for Michael O'Keefe (of "Caddyshack" fame). I don't know who M. Blash is, but he's going to have a make a REALLY good movie to make up for this.
