The Waitress is a sweet and sassy tale about a small town waitress who transforms her hopeless life into a hilarious and unexpected love story. As a favorite waitress at Joe’s Diner, Jenna (Kerry 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.
