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.

Missed opportunity.
30 October 2016 | by mickharrySee all my reviews

In the end titles we see photos of actual people depicted in an enjoyable, but light weight, story. The amusing idea of a well-to-do financier having to find work serving in a fast-food joint was based on real events. The film chose the feel good option, touching fleetingly on some serious economic issues. People relationships feature, centred on the fantastically lovey-dovey central couple. There are glimpses of other less happy couples. I enjoyed the film because of the humour and the occasional flashes of human dilemmas. I feel more of the people's dilemmas in this context would have made a less humorous but a much better film.
