Waitress

Director Adrienne Shelly’s last film is a mixed bag. The dialogue is weird and delicious, written in an artificial faux-Southern dialect and voiced by cartoon gothic characters in candy-colored waitress uniforms. The story—a typical romantic comedy about a woman trapped in a horrid marriage who finds love with her obstetrician—follows the most obvious path to an obvious conclusion. But the gorgeous and kitschy photography and strong performances by Keri Russell, Jeremy Sisto, Cheryl Hines, Nathan Fillion and Shelly herself make individual scenes sparkle, even if the overall story disappoints in its slavish adherence to convention.
