Keri Russell is pretty amazing, playing a waitress who finds out she's pregnant, but married to a horrible, controlling husband (played pretty scarily by Jeremy Sisto - from Six Feet Under). She's a waitress at a pie diner, and spends all day designing all kinds of kooky pies to serve at the diner. She gives them all kinds of names and then we get to see her quickly make them - like "I Hate My Husband Pie... You take bittersweet chocolate and don't sweeten it. You make it into a pudding and drown it in caramel". They keep them evenly spaced throughout the movie so the gimmick doesn't wear off. Russell is terrific, finding the strength to live with her husband, by finding comfort in the arms of her doctor - played with bumbling, loveability by Firefly's Nathon Fillion, who will be appearing on Desperate Housewives this season! Anyway, Waitress is a very cute movie, that spends a lot of time making you uneasy with the relationship between Russell and Sisto, but warm and fuzzy with Russell and Fillion. Just so you don't worry, she doesn't get hurt badly, and the ending is terrific!
