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. After ‘Blair Witch,’ campgrounds across the country remained empty.” Now, Burns has a strong suspicion that after next Friday, “Diners across the country will be afraid to send their food back.”

SAME OLD SONG: McKittrick envisioned the script — about a group of young restaurant employees who collectively stave off boredom and adulthood with their antics — after waiting tables in the Sarasota, Fla., and Orlando areas. “There’s the hot under-age hostess, the waitress who’s been there too long … truisms that transcend location,” he said.
