Waiting Woof! 2005 (R)

Any laughs that might have been squeezed from this comedy set at Shenanigan-Z—an eatery more mall-generic than a blend of Bennigan's and Applebee's—have been derailed by the genuinely pathetic lives of the staff and their patrons. Solid cast, led by Reynolds, is given table scraps in the form of predictable food pranks and self-loathing gags. 93m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc . US Ryan Reynolds, Anna Faris, Justin Long, David Koechner, Luis Guzman, Chi McBride, Alanna Ubach, Vanessa Lengies, Max Kasch, Dane Cook, Jordan Ladd, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Wendie Malick, John Francis Daley, Kaitlin Doubleday, Robert Patrick Benedict, Andy Milonakis; D: Rob McKittrick; W: Rob McKittrick; C: Matthew Irving; M: Adam Gorgoni.
