Waiting...

I had a chance to make it out to two movies this past weekend, sadly neither of which was Wallace and Gromit. I would've got to see it but because it's animated and I think they're gearing it towards children I couldn't find a show time later than 9:00 and it had started before we made it out to the theater.

Waiting is your typical slacker movie which takes place in Shenanigan's, your run of the mill cookie-cutter chain restaurant. The movie overall was decent and had enough laughs but with some minor tweaking it could've been made it into a great movie.

First off every slacker movie needs a killer soundtrack if you're going to achieve cult status. The music in Waiting was barely there and just as forgetable when it does surface. Secondly they could've gone a little further exploring each character. Sure everyone learns a lesson in the end but you don't end up caring because they never really fully developed the characters. On the plus side Ryan Renolds does a great job as the asshole/charmer who likes his women underage and is pretty much the only reason to see the movie.
