WorkNameSort: Caffeine

As if working at a café weren't boring enough, Caffeine goes out of its way to bring that same dreary experience home to you. A simply uninteresting romp, this low-budget film pits a handful of American actors using hokey British accents against a plotless laughless comedy. In dialogue unfit for a failing TV sitcom, the story opens as Rachel (Marsha Thomason), the café manager, fires her newly ex-boyfriend (Callum Blue), who also happens to be the only cook. The rest of the film wraps around the café as the employees try to hold everything together without suitable food to feed customers. Simple enough, but the screenwriter lacks confidence in his story, and the film spends the majority of its time introducing unoriginal character after character until no time is left for any actual plot development. Without accomplishing anything, 88 minutes slowly pass and the film ends. The basic behind-the-scenes and blooper reel are not enough to save the movie on the DVD side.
