A diner waitress stuck in a lousy marriage whose only solace is baking out-of-this-world pies. When the awkwardly charming new OB-GYN, Dr. Pomatter, comes to town, she’s inspired to mix-master her life into something far more satisfying.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good Waitress is a pleasant dramatic comedy that overcomes its tonal inconsistencies by presenting an engaging lead character with whom its virtually impossible not to empathize.

As a favorite waitress at Joe's Diner, Jenna (Keri Russell) is also a "pie genius,” naming her tantalizing confections after the tumultuous events and emotions of her daily life. She's hoping that one of her pastries, like her "Kick In The Pants” Pie, might even change her life – if she can just win that $25,000 pie contest. But when Jenna discovers that she's pregnant, she immediately bakes an "I Don't Want Earl's Baby” Pie – a quiche of egg and cheese with a smoked ham center. After all, her husband Earl (Jeremy Sisto) is a jealous jerk who is essentially a child himself and the last thing they need to do is start a family together. But the pregnancy eventually changes the course of events in her life, giving her an unexpected and newfound confidence via letters to her unborn baby.
