A couple who is expecting their first child travel around the U.S. in order to find a perfect place to start their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover "home" on their own terms for the first time.
Straight-laced Rose breaks off relations with her party girl sister, Maggie, over an indiscretion involving Rose's boyfriend. The chilly atmosphere is broken with the arrival of Ella, the grandmother neither sister knew existed.
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? Written by
Assuming this movie takes place in the present, the nurse's uniform in the delivery room is a least twenty years out of date. RN's are no longer required to wear all white nor to wear their nursing school cap. Even the most die-hard ones gave up the white and caps by the mid 80's. See more »
Are you with child?
I saw that look on a woman's face before. Her name was Annette. I made sweet sweet love to her all through the summer of 1948, and she had that look on her face all through the fall.

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.
