Storyline

Jenna is unhappily married, squirreling away money, and hoping to win a pie-baking contest so, with the prize money, she'll have enough cash to leave her husband Earl. She finds herself pregnant, which throws her plans awry. She bakes phenomenal pies at Joe's diner, listens to old Joe's wisdom, tolerates her sour boss Cal, is friends with Dawn and Becky (her fellow waitresses), and finds a mutual attraction with the new doctor in town. As the pregnancy advances, life with Earl seems less tolerable, a way out less clear, and the affair with the doctor complicated by his marriage. What options does a waitress have?

Goofs

During the movie, Jenna makes two lattice-top pies by laying all of the dough strips in one direction and then placing the dough strips for the other direction on top of the previous strips. Usually lattice-top pies are made with the dough strips for both directions woven together with each other. (That way they look better and bake more evenly.) See more »

Quotes

Cal: And you, late again. You are inches away from being fired missy.
Becky: Oh just try firing me, you old bucket of cheese.
Cal: Who are you calling a bucket of cheese you heifer? Now get to work before I fire your ass!
Becky: Calm down, you psychotic ape!

A Tounch of Authentic Comedic Romance
25 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gorgeously filmed story of Romance/Comedy in a southern town. Russell is sweetly brilliant- soundtrack is soulfully supportive of storyline.. Loved this one and can't wait to see it again in my neighborhood.

Andy Griffin couldn't have been more on target. Other characters Cheryl,Nathan, Jeremy- what can I say? brilliant casting.

Was thrilled to hear the film was picked up for distribution. The viewer can't help but walk away from WAITRESS with good vibes.

Adrienne Shelley was VERY good and her talent as writer, producer will be sorely missed. Was so sad to hear of her tragic murder. Unbelievable. Truth is stranger than fiction.
