"Waiting" kept me waiting for a long time. I kept waiting for it to become something more than just another second-rate comedy attempting to play to young adults. It has a decent cast, with a few notable exceptions. Justin Long, Anna Faris, Alanna Ubach and John Francis Daley are all fun to watch here. Daley nearly steals the show with his "new guy" persona, Mitch. Long is torn between becoming something special or just sticking it out at the local eatery. Faris redeems herself from the "Scary Movie" …

The people at Shenanigan's restaurant are an old mix of characters, never making their jobs boring by the amount of shenanigans of their own.

Pros: Decent cast, mildly humorous parts     Cons: Just not funny enough, nothing redeeming, no likable characters     The Bottom Line: What could have been another great working class satire like Clerks or Office Space, Waiting... suffers from thinking it is funnier than it is with nothing really to say.      Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. I don't have a problem with immature films. I enjoyed …
