Great Small and Big Screen Pie Moments Week 2

Waitress (2007)

This little independent romantic comedy has all the right ingredients of humor, sentimentality, and charm! Waitress was the directorial debut of indie-movie princess Adrienne Shelly, who tragically lost her life before the movie premiered. The all star cast includes Keri Russell who plays Jenna, a depressed waitress working at Joe’s Pie Diner and stuck in an abusive marriage; Cheryl Hines and Adrienne Shelly, her hilarious fellow waitresses; Nathan Fillion as her lovelorn ObGyn; and Andy Griffith (in his last film role) as Joe. The biggest character throughout the film though is Jenna’s famous pies, all inspired by her complicated and messy life. By the end of the movie, you will be wishing for a slice of I Hate My Husband Pie or Fallin’ In Love Chocolate Mousse Pie!
