Trivia

This movie was shot on location in a restaurant called Marty's in Manhattan. The staff at Marty's would not let the filmmakers shoot the picture during work hours, so the cast and crew had to wait until the restaurant closed and worked from twelve at night until ten in the morning. See more »

More Troma Crap
24 March 2019 | by videorama-759-859391See all my reviews

You pretty know what to expect in a Troma Team production. I laughed twice during the whole affair, where fifteen minutes in it's nearing, it got utterly ridiculous, for 10 minutes, I mouthed the words, "This fu...d". Then a sane moment came back, in which I was a highly relieved. If you're not aware, Troma Team, makes these insanely stupid rubbishy movies, you so long for a Chuck Norris movie alone. But there is a kind of smartness, amongst all the inanity, which if you're a budding actor, who've hit bad times, you may want to shun away from seeing thus. The lead character (Drake) who I'm sure, would be in other TT sh.t is this budding actress, and of course she's a waitress, longing for that break, like many actors and actress's today. She's probably the worst auditionee you've ever seen, as she's really never been given a chance. The movie resembles similar scenarios in films, about how woman are reduced to unclothing themselves, and virtually used as an admiring piece of T and A, and Drake is hot, that's for sure, like a few who work in the back of her kitchen. Another waitress just happens to be a writer. So we kind of have like two stories, but if making reservations to eat at your next restaurant, reserve yourself the right, not to to watch this film, cause what happens in the kitchen, is pretty disgusting, where the film makers must be pretty disgusting themselves. A tried rubbishy comedy, full of unfunny double meanings and some 'What' the f..k moments?'' For the very undemanding. And whoever heard of a waiter serving a Rolls chicken, literally. 2.5/10
