WHAT: The Thursday bow of Lions Gate’s “Waiting”

WHO: Helmer-scribe Rob McKittrick; pic’s Ryan Reynolds, Justin Long, John Francis Daley, Kaitlin Doubleday, Andy Milonakis, Dane Cook and Alanna Ubach; and Lions Gate’s Michael Burns and Tom Ortenberg, among others

WHERE: Mann’s Broxton Theater in Westwood Village, with an after-bash at Jerry’s Famous Deli. OH, WAITER…: “After ‘Fatal Attraction,’ men stopped cheating on their wives.
