Hilarious, a Canadian Waiter Rant!
21 October 2011 | by rush1550See all my reviews

I saw Servitude a few hours ago at the Grand River Film Festival in Waterloo and I was really impressed. Not only did it include a great cast (Linda Kash, Dave Foley, Enrico Colantoni) and a great director (Warren P. Sonoda - Textuality), but I found myself laughing constantly.

What drew me to go see it was that the plot seemed a lot like the book "Waiter Rant" and it actually was quite similar. Not only were both main characters waiters but they also blogged about waiting tables. I wonder if this movie was at all inspired by that. Both were hilarious.

I really enjoyed all the problem customers (the old couple, the passive-aggressive family, the pack of young male douche-bags, the cheap blonde lady) and the unique characters that make up the wait staff. I'd have to say my favourite character was Franz, the Nazi inspector. Never lock a German guy in a room full of Schnapps and pretzels.... I also found myself really feeling for Josh and his girlfriend and career along with the other characters and their hopes and dreams.

One thing that kind of bothered me though was that the movie seemed a lot more like a TV show than a movie. Maybe because it was mostly just in one location, which can't be helped because it's about being a waiter at a specific restaurant. Someone said that it would make a great TV series (during the Q&A) and I agree, especially since there are probably so many funny anecdotes about people waiting tables. All around a really awesome movie and definitely worthy of being Canada's first great comedy (in a while)! I can't wait for it to come out so I can see it again and show it to people!
