While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with -- a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
When a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch named Buddy Israel decides to turn state's evidence and testify against the mob, it seems that a whole lot of people would like to make sure he's no longer breathing.
It's the dinner shift at Shenanigan's. Dan, the clueless boss, assigns Mitch, 22, a trainee, to Monty, the smooth talker who chases girls for one-night stands. Dean, a waiter, also 22, feels that life is passing him by. Dan offers him the assistant manager job and gives him until midnight to decide. Other waiters, cooks, and bus boys have their issues and personalities. Bishop, the dishwasher, is their counselor. During this shift, Monty may learn something, Dean makes his decision, Dan makes a play for the not-yet-18 hostess, customers get their comeuppance, the guys all play the in-house homophobic flashing game, the gals demonstrate why they won't, and Mitch gets the last word.Written by
The "foreign" guests at the bar speak German with Austrian accent and the guy says, "Did you see the blonde girl? That's unbelievable, her breasts are incredible!" See more »
When Mitch is watching the training video, the side of the TV is visible and it is obvious that the VCR is not connected to the TV. See more »

Listen, man. You got nothing to worry about.
[pats Mitch on shoulder]
It's just a game.
And besides, you know, if heterosexual men can't show their cocks to each other, then what the hell are we doing here?

At the very end of the credits there is an "uber special thanks" section which contains Rob McKittrick's thank yous. The most notable ones being "God, for not existing," and "Kevin Smith, for providing the world with 'Clerks', the movie that made my movie seem possible. Randal is one of the greatest characters ever." See more »
As far as the unrated cut goes, the 'unrated' portions mostly concern the testicles and vagina shots near the end of the movie that had to be changed for the MPAA. For the vagina shot, the camera is slightly closer than it was theatrically. For the testicles shot in the theatrical, they were just hanging out of the boxers; this take is used on Disc Two during 'The Works' at the beginning of the Luis Guzman casting section. Another unrated change is that the rap video during the credits is uncensored, while the theatrical had words bleeped very arbitrarily. See more »
Must see for anyone who has ever worked in the restaurant business..
To the people who have never worked a day in a restaurant, this movie is NOT for you. To the people who go to a restaurant and treat the staff like $hit, This movie is NOT for you either. Trust me, save yourself the realization of just what you've REALLY eaten, cuz your life will be much better if you never find out. For everyone else, this movie is perfect. Its never going to win any awards, and doesn't even try to. From the 5-second rule to the intermingled sex lives of the staff to the retarded manager, this movie hits the nail right on the head. It seems like someone in Hollywood finally got some money to throw around and decided to pay homage to his life before being "Someone" in Hollywood. I laughed till i cried through the first 30 minutes and the rest of the movie was just as good. It's destined to become a cult classic for anyone in The Industry and will definitely be on my bookshelf the day it comes out. As long as you go in only with expectations of being grossed out and laughing till it hurts, you will not be disappointed!!
