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
When Jenna goes to get her first ultrasound she is wearing a pale sky blue button-down shirt. But after the ultrasound, when she is in the doctors office, her shirt is a periwinkle blue, closely resembling a light lavender blue and does not appear to have buttons, but a V-shaped collar, but you can only see the full shirt very briefly at the beginning when they are both sitting in his office. Then, immediately after, when she's walking on the street, her shirt changes back to a pale sky blue color, but the buttons are harder to see. And when she's seated at the bus stop the buttons are very prominent and the color is slightly different. The color changes could be do to lighting, but more than likely they are different shirts.

Hey. You remember what I said - don't you go lovin' that baby too much.
I don't love you, Earl. I haven't loved you for years. I want a divorce.
Well, that's not a funny joke. You got this new baby here, you shouldn't be making jokes like that...
I want you the hell out of my life. You are never to touch me, ever again; I am done with you. If you ever come within six yards of me, I will flatten your sorry ass and I'll enjoy doin' it.

I can't believe this movie is so highly rated. All I can see is a badly written, badly acted mess. It tries to be heartfelt and bittersweet but it ends up just being creepy.
The main character is a miserable, angry woman who is being abused and slapped around by her evil, dim-witted husband. She plots her escape while having an affair with a married doctor. To make everything worse, she's pregnant but does not want the baby.
The writer/director wants to make a light, sweet comedy out of this grim stuff. It does not work at all. It's as if someone took the script of "Medea" and tried to make a rom-com.
Nathan Fillion is actually quite good. The rest is best forgotten.
