Waitress


This was meant to be my movie of the summer, but last summer. But yea, never got around to watching it. It's pretty much the cutest movie I've seen in quite a while.

Plot: Jenna (aka Keri Russel aka Felicity aka 'mom' in August Rush) is a waitress at a little pie diner. She loves pies and hates her husband (aka Jeremy Sisto, aka Elton from Clueless). This is basically about how she tries to leave him. And how she loves her gyni (aka Nathan Fillion, aka the blond girl's husband from 2 guys a girl and a pizza place aka the really hilarious bad priest from Buffy).

Sort of like: Juno meets Pushing Daisies.

Why it's great: Punchy dialogue, really cute set, and amazing amazing pies. It will also instill you (ie, it did this to me) with the insane desire to become a master pie baker. So we all know what I'm going to be doing next semester...

Sad story: Adrienne Shelly wrote, directed and acted in this. She was then killed by some construction worker. Totally unrelated incidents, but something to know.

Yay or Nay? Definite yay. Well, if you're a girl. If you're a guy... it's pretty male-friendly as far as female comedies go. But nothing explodes, there are no fast cars, no one gets shot, and no one is naked.
