Week 33: Waitress

Well here’s a cute little film…

...and that’s about all I can think to say about it. It’s really, really cute. Kind of bordering on cloying. And while it’s not quite an indie film, it’s not exactly mainstream either. I did adore Cheryl Hines as a post-modern Flo from Mel’s diner. Kiss my grits! When she told fellow waitress Dawn that, with make-up, her face looks just like a normal person’s, I cracked up.

On a bitter note, our Netflix disc was scratched within an inch of its life, meaning we had to skip two or three chapters along the way and we never actually got to see the end of the movie. I resorted to looking up the ending online, and it ended exactly how I would have guessed, so no great loss.
