Storyline

Waffle Street's riches-to-rags tale is an adaptation of James Adams' 2010 memoir of the same name (published by Sourced Media Books), which chronicles the financier's foray into the food industry. After being laid off at the hedge fund where he worked, and further jaded by his culpability in the crisis, Adams chose to work at a popular 24-hour diner where he claims "most of his financial knowledge has been gleaned." Offering a fresh take on the fallout of corporate greed, Adams' is a tale of the redemption and unlikely friendship found under the tutelage of Glover's character Edward, the best short-order cook in town. Written by Autumn McAlpin

A kin heart warming movie
28 February 2018 | by ComedyFan2010See all my reviews

When watching this movie I noticed that it is pretty unrealistic. And was very surprised that it was based on a true story. But of course I don't know how close to the facts this movie was made. But sometimes realism isn't necessary to enjoy the movie. This was the case with Waffle Street for me.

I love the movie because it was so kind and feel good. I don't care how "privileged" the main character is. I still enjoyed watching him discover himself and what he wants from life. And I was totally rooting for him to find what makes him happy and achieve his goals.

The acting is pretty good. Working in food service before I never was in a situation where people were like one big happy family, but I loved watching it on screen with all coworkers of Jim bringing in their special characters and personality that helped him in his time of self discovery.

I loved how it ended and am happy how this movie left me with a feeling of happiness afterwards.
