Michael Rechtshaffen A pie for every trapped occasion.
Sonette Lombard Veel meer as net 'n romantiese komedie.
Anthony Quinn Waitress is sweet but not funny.

Bruce Dennill There have been plenty of movies about the lives of small-town dead-enders and their frustrations, but this one, for part of the way at least, is more enjoyable than most of those.
Barry Ronge Ignore the 'chick-flick' label. This is a fine slice of old-fashioned romantic Americana, as fresh, sweet and pleasing as the heroine's pies.
Megan Kakora This quirky comedy about flawed people in everyday situations is the kind of lighthearted escapism that will leave you both smiling and puzzled.
Catherine Chambers Despite getting off to a good start with an entertaining premise, Waitress ultimately promises more than it delivers.
Ray Greene Adrienne Shelly's warm and joyful blue-collar comedy makes ''quirky'' a great place to be.
Hannah Sung The film is likeable.
James Berardinelli Waitress is a pleasant dramatic comedy that overcomes its tonal inconsistencies by presenting an engaging lead character with whom its virtually impossible not to empathize.
Peter Travers This sweetheart of a comedy boasts a hilarious and heartfelt performance by Keri Russell.
Tomatometer Sweet, smart and quirky.
