Trivia:
The last name of Jenna's doctor, Pomatter, is the combination of three of Adrienne Shelly's favorite Yankees players.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: 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:
Jenna:Cal, are you happy? I mean, when you call yourself a happy man, do you really mean it?
Cal:You ask a serious question, I'll give you a serious answer: Happy enough. I don't expect much. I don't get much, I don't give much. I generally enjoy whatever comes along. That's my answer for you, summed up for your feminine consideration. I'm happy enough.

Perfect Mother's Day Movie, 13 May 2007
Author: erikawak from United States

My boyfriend took me and my 15 year old daughter to see this for Mother's Day and it was PERFECTION. Beautifully written and acted, a movie with heart and a story. We all walked out singing the sweet song at the end of the movie. (I hope the soundtrack comes out soon.) Yes, there were some predictable plot lines but who cares? When a movie is handcrafted like a good pie (ok, slightly hokey but so is the movie), it stands on its own.

Keri Russel is lit like an angel and the storyline between her and her doctor is sweet, slightly silly and tinged with sadness. Andy Griffith gives a great character performance, delivering salty bits of wisdom and memories with equal doses.

I hope this gets a wider release - more people should see it.
