Waitress! (1981) from Tuna

This is one of a new series of remastered early Troma films, pre Toxie.
 You can always count on Troma for consistent "bad movies," in bad taste, and with puns, gross-out humor, fart jokes, tits, in other words, everything I love about "bad films." This is no exception. The story meanders around a restaurant, and especially around three waitresses, a would-be actress, I would-be writer, and the daughter of the owner. 


Lots of breasts. The only actress we have identified is Carol Drake.

DVD info from Amazon.

  • no widescreen

  • The quality is decent, and there are some extras. 

 It would be going too far to say that this wackiness had a plot. Some of the bits are funny, some are crude, and most are stupid, but this is the kind of mindless bad film I need once in a while. 

The Critics Vote

  • Leonard Maltin 0/4

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 4.8
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a C, genre: screwball comedy
