Though I am a crusty old guy, ha, sometimes I see what I will call a "chick flick" that does it for me.


The new movie "Waitress" tells the tale of a girl who hates her husband, gets pregnant, has an affair, and deals with her stress by creating specialty PIES at Joe's Pie Diner. Each time something goes a wry, her mind concentrates on Pies and the movie screen shows what she is thinking. The pies look delicious!

The movie was written and directed by the late Adrienne Shelly, who also has a role as one of the other Waitresses in the fictional Pie shop owned by Joe played with style by the great Andy Griffith. Got your attention yet?  Kerry Russell is Jenna the star of the Pie Shop and the movie.  She and her fellow Pie Shop employees, including Cheryl Hines, spend their days making people happy serving Pies and coffee. Her husband played by Jeremy Sisto isn't a very nice person, but she stays in relationship.  Anyway, always dreaming of a way to win the National Pie Bake-Off competition, move away and open her own Pie Shop.  Dump that Chump!

This story is very sweet and cute and you will walk away with a smile on your face and maybe some grumblings in your tummy. The theme song is very toe tapping.
