From Wall To Waffle (Movie Thoughts: Waffle Street)

20161227121721‘Waffle Street’ is a film based on Jimmy Adams’ memoir of the same title, where he chronicled his ‘fall from grace’ going from a Fixed Income trader to serving tables at a local waffle house, and this happened after the economic meltdown of 2008. It’s an interesting enough story, but it feels a little sleight for a feature film. James Lafferty plays Adams, and he is fine in the role – cute and charming – but while watching the film, I couldn’t help but want for something more – more depth, more drama, more dynamics. The film, as it stands, is mostly  fine, but truly forgettable.  Sometimes being boring is a bigger crime.
