Product Description

Rom-com about a small-town waitress whose desperation to change her life and train-wreck marriage is brought to a head when she discovers she's pregnant. Working at a pie-shop in the Deep South, popular waitress Jenna (Keri Russell) longs for the day when she can say goodbye to her domineering husband (Jeremy Sisto). Relieving her stress by baking pies inspired by her predicament, Jenna feels her ship has already sailed, until the town's gorgeous new Doctor (Nathan Fillier) tells her she's pregnant. As her life begins to change in ways she could never imagine, Jenna embarks on an affair with her married Doctor, determined to grab one last chance at happiness.

From Amazon.co.uk

Much like the films of Hal Hartley, Waitress is funny in a deadpan sort of way, but a sadness lurks below the surface. After making a splash in Hartley's The Unbelievable Truth and Trust, Adrienne Shelly turned to directing with Sudden Manhattan and I'll Take You There. Set in a small Southern town, her third picture revolves around waitress Jenna (Felicity's radiant Keri Russell), who works at Joe's Pie Diner (Joe is played by Andy Griffith). Jenna is the pastry genius who makes Joe's joint shine. Her co-workers include the forthright Becky (Cheryl Hines, Curb Your Enthusiasm) and insecure Dawn (Shelly). All three have man trouble, but Jenna has it the worst. Her husband, Earl (Jeremy Sisto, Six Feet Under), treats her like a piece of property. When she finds out she's pregnant, Jenna fears she'll be stuck with him forever. Then, she develops a crush on her married obstetrician, Dr. Pomatter (Nathan Fillion, Serenity). With the aid of her fanciful confections, like peachy keen tarts, their flirtation develops into a full-blown affair. It appears to be a no-win situation, but Shelly finds an empowering way to bring this bittersweet story to a close. If the candy-coloured conclusion plays more like fantasy than reality, it's a fantasy worth embracing. Sadly, Shelly was murdered before Waitress ever saw the light of day (leaving behind a husband and child of her own). Fortunately, her final film is far more life-affirming than morose, although it does end with the word "goodbye." --Kathleen C. Fennessy

The first time I watched this with my boyfriend we were both in hysterics. It was more due to the idea of the repeated pie scenes than anything else and I dismissed the film as a waste of a fiver.

A couple of months later I picked it up again and watched it alone. This time I still laughed but it was due to the witty screenplay. This time though it also touched me how sad and tragic this story is. Yes, it is a romantic comedy but the torturous situation that Jenna (Keri Russell) finds herself in does strike a certain chord.

Her extreme apathy for the baby she is having is hysterical and throughout you find yourself laughing and crying at the same time. It's definitley a film that needs to be seen in different lights before you judge it.

And the pies weren't all that bad after all.

If you like quirky, imaginative movies with a charming but not rose coloured view, 'Waitress' is for you. All the shades of life are present. It's funny but sad, romantic but realistic, colourful with occasional grey - it's got the lot.
The central character played by Keri Russell is a highly skilled pie maker who dreams of escaping her controlling and sometimes violent husband by entering the national pie contest. The prize is enough money to escape but just as she's testing out recipes she discovers she is pregnant. This leads to a Doctor's appointment where she and the new Doc in town discover they cant keep their hands off one another! Her job at a diner brings 2 hilarious co-waitresses into proceedings and they all play beautifully off one another. You'll be rooting for a happy ending and it's kind of there but not as you might expect.
Adrienne Shelly who plays one of the waitresses also directed this film and sadly never lived to see its acclaim when premiered at film festivals. This adds extra poignancy to some of the scenes in a film I cant recommend highly enough.

Format: DVD
Normally i would rather French kiss Pete Doherty than watch anything that comes under the heading romantic comedy. Yet Waitress somehow seduced me into wanting to watch it and i,m very glad it did as this is a modest but sparkling film with impressive naturalistic performances and a vivacious empathetic script.
Writer Adrienne Shelly also plays the part of dowdy waitress Dawn who works in Joes,s Diner along with vivacious Becky (Cheryl Hines) and ace pie baker Jenna ( Keri Russell) who can think up the perfect pie for any occasion. The " I don,t want Earls baby pie" in this case as she has just found she is expecting her first child to her controlling bully of a husband Earl ( Jeremy Sisto). Not too surprisingly she views the impending sprog as a further chain around her neck. Release arrives in the form of new doctor in town,Dr Jim Pommater( Nathan Fillion) who she begins an awkward but none the less passionate affair with . The owner of the diner , not too surprisingly called Joe( Andy Griffith) , is a gruff finicky old grouch but has a bond with him and he tells her "i,t,s never too late" and that's the advice that forms the central precept of this film to fuzzy edged golden glowing effect.
While i would,nt go along with the opinion that this movie is hilarious - to me i,its more wryly amusing than anything - i do,nt think this prevents Waitress being a consistently enjoyable experience. The performances are uniformly terrific.Keri Russell is outstanding in the lead, fresh and pretty ( even when huffing and puffing sweatily in labour ) she radiates an innocent sex appeal . Less innocent but no less sexy is Cheryl Hines who gets most of the best comic lines. And if the ending is overly confected feel good blamange then so what? It,s that type of film.

"What-a-great-momma-you're-gonna-be."

Everything about this is totally predictable and clichéd, but somehow, Waitress manages to manipulate you into thinking that 'clichedness' and 'predictableness' are good things, through the use of genuine... niceness! No wait... hear me out.

"Get lost you ol' bucket o' cheese!"

Everyone, even if the thought is right at the back of their mind, has this 'urge' to run away from their lives; to completely "start fresh"... But nobody ever does. Therefore, what Adrienne Shelly has created for us is a character who lives our dreams and feeds our fantasies.

"I don't care if you're pregnant! As long as you can fill pies and serve customers I don't care if you give birth while doin' it!"

Playing this character is Keri Russell on fine form, joined by names such as Nathan Fillon and Cheryl Hines along her road to happiness. As is highlighted in another review, what makes the cast seem so great is the screenplay... Waitress was also written by Adrienne Shelly, who in my opinion is utter genius.

"Oh my god! Dawn! Your skin actually looks like a normal person's!"

There are no visual gags in Waitress- as you're watching, you'll find yourself in hysterics, wonder how, then realize that it's all down to the terrifyingly witty screenplay. The dialogue in the scenes between the 3 waitresses can only be described as genius... I don't think I've ever laughed so much whilst watching a film!

"Don't start gettin' all nervous, an' sweet, an..." "And what?" "An nothin' just, finish your pie an' leave!
