A Hidden Classic in the World of Film
11 February 1999 | by Peggy-7See all my reviews

If you've seen Troma's The Toxic Avenger, then you can get ready for Waitress. While it's not the horror movie Toxic was, its humor is matched 100 percent by Toxic.

Corny like a Sunday, Waitress is still one of my favorite films. It's VERY funny, most people are scared to say that this film is good, because they're afraid people will think they are dumb, well I have an above average IQ, a building full of friends and a sweet life, and I say Waitress is good.

On a scale of 1 to 10, Waitress gets a 9!
