20th Century Fox 'Waitress' was the lowest-profile of Hollywood's three recent accidental-pregnancy comedies, but it's more credible and lovable than either 'Knocked Up' or 'Juno'.

Keri Russell stars as a pie-baking waitress who can't escape her grim marriage because she's got a bun in the oven. As sweet as it is, 'Waitress' is filled with flawed, three-dimensional characters, and the situation is complicated enough to leave the outcome in doubt, even when things get romantic between Russell and her doctor, Nathan Fillion. There's nutrition in this pie, as well as sugar.
