I saw "Knocked Up" and "Waitress" within a month of each other. Theyturned out to be two very different films about the exact same thing:unwanted pregnancies; one the result of a one-night stand, the otherthe seed of a really bad husband. My response to these two criticallyacclaimed films couldn't b...
Sadly writer, actress and director Adrienne Shelley is not around toenjoy the success her film is receiving, she was waiting to find out ifit had made the Cannes selection when she was found in an apparentsuicide which later turned out to be a murder. I think the hardestthing in watching this film k...
The premature and tragic homicide of actress/writer/director AdrienneShelly is a well known tale, and with a film like Waitress arrivingafter the filmmakers death, it is hard not to treat the final work abit nicer and judge a little less harshly than you would another film.As it turns out though, Wa...
It took me a half hour or so to finally decide to relax and enjoy thisfractured fairy tale of rural Americana. To start with the dialog wasdefinitely meant to express what people think, and not what they reallycome up with. The characters are all quirky and driven by thescreenplay - written by the l...
"Waitress" is one of my favourite types of films, a dramatic dark storytold through comedy. It's hard to get it right, but here it's doneperfectly. It's the story about Jenna (Keri Russell) a small-townwaitress who gets pregnant by her abusive husband, and all she wants isto win a pie baking contest...
A conversation-starter at the Sundance Film Festival and a modestsuccess at the box office, "Waitress" is a small tale about a smallwoman overcoming great odds. Writer and director Adrienne Shelly wrotethe screenplay for the film whilst pregnant with her first child Sophieand began filming in Novemb...

After becoming pregnant,she mopes around and has an affair for about an hour and a half, afterwhich all her problems are solved by cute baby footage and a kindly oldmoneybags ex machina.Pl...
In this chirpy romantic comedy, Keri Russell plays Jenna, a waitress ata pie diner in the middle of nowhere. She passes the time by inventinga new pie everyday, often with neurotic names like "I hate my husbandand want to leave him pie". Her life is a mess, she is married to a pigshe yearns to escap...
I had a chance to see a movie for free and decided from the tag-line,"If only life were as easy as pie," that perhaps Waitress would beworth watching. I was wrong. It was as if someone had jotted down an OKLifetime Movie of the Week story outline and hired a writer to flush itout with predictable jo...
I heard about this independent film, which I really wanted to see,because I knew the writer and director Adrienne Shelly died not longafter filming had finished, and not long before it was headlining afilm festival, I assumed her death was either an accident or suicide, Ihad no idea she was murdered...
Waitress is a comedy-drama film written and directed by AdrienneShelly, who also appears in a supporting role.Incidentally,it was thefinal film from actress/filmmaker.The movie debuted at the SundanceFilm Festival in Utah just months after the director was discovereddead in her New York City apartme...
Every once in a while, I find a movie that's not very well known andgive it a chance. I, like many other moviegoers, believe that some ofthe most priceless gems are the hidden ones. While it's true that themovie reached critical success, it wasn't widely received the way abigger budget movie might h...
Waitress'Waitress' is essentially a story about a young mother-to-be writing aletter of apology to her unborn baby. Set in a Southern town, itcentres around a diner where pies are not only made fresh and inabundance, but treated as objects of worship. With their small andunfulfilled lives, three of ...
This movie is, in short, great :) I've come to watch Waitress in myspare time, expecting a mindless comedy with a little fun. What Ireceive was very, very good film that was able to pull me out of myhalf-sleep state so that I can enjoy every moment of it. This moviequite differ from other comedy/dra...
Jenna seems to have a really boring life when she discovers that she'spregnant. Every man in her life treats her like garbage until she goesto the doctor and he's a nice guy. Maybe too nice to her. Jenna alsohas this husband who is somewhat mean to her. I didn't think that hewas that bad at all. Jen...
Honor Adrienne Shelley- RENT or BUY this movie. It's a beautiful film,to be thoroughly enjoyed by all. As a filmmaker, I can attest thatthere isn't an amateurish "second" in this movie. The writing, actingand directing are flawless. God only knows the heights Ms. Shelleywould have ultimately achieve...
no its not the most intelligent movie ever, but it has a genuine sinceof humor and appreciation for motherhood. Adrienne Shelly wrote afabulous lullaby for the movie and her daughter is super cute at theend. earl is definitely hate-able, but then again no one in this moviereally has the right to jud...
As it is pleasant after all blockbusters, even the most entertainment,to plunge into a usual life of usual people what it is actually,instead of that what represents it the majority of cinematographers orwhat it go to see visitors of cinemas. We see people who live with theunloved; marrying it is no...

Present her withthe finest ingredients of lovable characters, an intriguing love storyand a good helping of humour. Step...
I just saw this movie last night and thought it would be nice tocomment on this movie since I saw another romantic comedy this morning- Dedication and commented on it.Little did I know that I would end up writing a eulogy instead of shortmovie review. I had seen Shelly in Trust less than a year ago ...
It had great characters and great lines. It has poetry and pie. Butunfortunately only gave me a few laughs.Keri Russell was excellent. Her performance gave us a realistic look atbeing pregnant(i think, i have never been pregnant). She was a wittycharacter who we see make up new pies in her head. She...
Waitress is an wonderful feel good movie with an enchanting performanceby Keri Russell. For a romantic comedy it is rather deep andemotionally distressing at times, but that's because we empathize withthe characters so much. Russell's character is a southern bell ofsorts, who get's pregnant by her j...
On the surface WAITRESS is a simple, honest, unpretentious, funny,tender, and sensitive film about simple people in a small Southerntown: it is the core of the film, the examination of individual'schoices, consequences, rights, and fraternity that makes the littleIndie so special. And another featur...
Sadly, it looks like tonight (Nov 22, 2007) is the last regularlyscheduled night for Waitress to play in theaters. I first heard aboutthis film at the Indianapolis Film Festival. From that night in lateApril, till tonight's last show in Madison, Wisconsin, I've followed,from afar, the story of "The ...
My sister and I caught this movie by default; there was nothing at the"regular" theaters we were interested in seeing and this movie had KeriRussell in it. Boy were we surprised! This was a funny, heart-warming,heart-breaking, sweet movie! Nathan is WONDERFUL as the Doctor! The only time I had seen ...
