4.5 An Absolute Gem cutegamesforgirls | 22/10/2011 | See all cutegamesforgirls's reviews (124) What a funny film!! I'm not sure where to start tbh, it barely puts a foot wrong. The acting is superb, the characters brilliant, the dialogue superb and the simple premise-waiting on customers in a normal restaurant day-is so unique it's a stroke of genius. It's also very refreshing not to have some shonky love story running through it and makes the film so much more realistic. Indeed, the beauty of this film is reality suspended in disbelief. Ryan Reynolds is hilarious as a cocksure waiter, Justin Long believable as a young man unsure if he has fulfilled his potential already and Anna Farris great as a jilted yet ice cool modern chick. And this is without even mentioning the fantastic characters of the two cockasian busboys convinced they are gangsters. Some of the comedy is a little crude but the incredible performances from all involved paper over this spectacularly. That's not to say you won't be wetting yourself laughing-you will. Although perhaps not for older viewers, it's always good when a film like this comes out of the blue and completely grips and enthralls you. Riveting, Racy, Raucous. See it.
