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

This movie basically took everything that was good about the first one and made it less interesting and engaging. The cameos was okay just not that great and sort of pointless with the return of some the cast from the first movie, in fact this sequel is pointless. Rob McKittrick the writer for the film even admitted he had no idea what to write about for the plot, the first movie didn't really have a plot but this one was just way more random and ridiculous and just too over the top. In fact Rob if you see him in the behind the scenes is a dick himself and one cocky guy after a decent success of his first movie. The first "Waiting.." was great because it is something that a lot of people that worked in a restaurant can relate with, this isn't the case for the sequel. So it basically continues the adventures of the waiting staff at Shenaniganz restaurant after two years later, except now they are having sort of a competition with the new Ta-Ta's Wing Shack restaurant where some of the old team members work now, which is basically like Hooters or Twin Peaks. They got the team members from the first movie back but not all of them and the new team members in the restaurants isn't as likable. As a matter of fact they don't have the two main actors from the first movie that took the spotlight back, which is Monty(Ryan Reynolds) and Floyd(Dane Cook). And basically replaced Monty with Agnew(Stever Howey) who is a dick in real life and in the movie as well, but he isn't a likable dick like Ryan Reynolds was, but I will admit his stereotyping jokes were actually kinda funny. The first movie had a lot of toilet humor and stuff was just random, and there is a lot of toilet humor in this one as well but it just isn't as engaging or as entertaining. Chris Williams is sort of a replacement of Floyd, but just comes off as a prick that should have had something bad happen to him at the end. It was interesting to find out that Mason and Agnew is real people and Rob took down the stupid stuff they said and got it into writing for this movie. It's a weak sequel overall and the cast wasn't as likable, it's not terrible though and I guess it's worth seeing if you really enjoyed the first "Waiting...". The main highlight of this movie though is the Ta-Ta's Wing Shack girls, Amanda Loncar was hot.
