Plot Summary

At a café in London, manager Rachel (Marsha Thomason) fires her cheating boyfriend, Charlie (Callum Blue), the cook, just before the lunchtime rush. His job falls to a waiter, Tom (Mark Pellegrino), with zero grill skills. Meanwhile, the customers deal with broken hearts, bad dates and jealousy -- not to mention the crazed mother of one of the waitresses. Rachel plans to escape the chaos by working at a fancier restaurant, which, unfortunately, has chosen that day to observe her in action.

    The claustrophobic and poorly executed Caffeine is either a play in search of a movie or a movie in search of a play but, either way, it's searching for the wrong thing. What it desperately needs are laughs. show more

    Cosgrove and screenwriter Dean Craig aim for the kind of close-quarters chaos that John Cleese and Connie Booth turned into high comic art on "Fawlty Towers," but Caffeine's roundelay of sophomoric urination, masturbation and pedophilia gags isn't half as funny as the atrocious British accents of the largely American cast. show more
