A favorite of critics and audiences alike, Waitress
, the irresistible film filled with delicious spunk, arrives on DVD November 27, 2007 from Fox Home Entertainment. This "vibrant and uplifting comedy" (Entertainment Weekly) follows the day-to-day realities of a small town woman who ultimately transforms her seemingly hopeless life into a hilarious and unexpected love story. "Both satisfying and surprising . . . a movie that leaves you feeling good" (The New York Times), Waitress
is a whimsical romantic comedy that reveals the power of friendship, motherhood and the willingness to take a chance.
The final film of actress/writer/director Adrienne Shelly (Factotum, The Unbelievable Truth), Waitress stars Keri Russell (The Upside of Anger, "Felicity") as Jenna, a simple diner waitress stuck in a lousy marriage whose only solace is baking scrumptious pies. Aptly naming her delectable desserts after her daily emotions, Jenna hopes to one day win the local pie-baking contest earning $25,000 and a fresh start. Concocting a recipe for a new life gets difficult though when she finds herself not only pregnant with her good-for-nothin' husband's child, but also in love with the town's awkwardly charming new OB-GYN. While Jenna's "I Don't Want Earl's Baby" pie might not secure her the grand prize, her "Kick In The Pants" pie may be just what she needs.
Waitress also features a dynamic supporting cast including Emmy®-nominee Cheryl Hines
(Curb Your Enthusiasm
), Nathan Fillion
), Jeremy Sisto
, Six Feet Under
) and classic television star Andy Griffith
(The Andy Griffith Show
). Waitress arrives on DVD brimming with bonus features such as a "Making Of" the film, actor and director profiles, featurettes and more.
