Keri Russel does her job, but the actual movie isn't that crazy. She plays this Southern pie maker who hates her husband and has an affair. It doesn't really get any deeper than that. It's one of those movies that you can't fall in love with. Well, I guess some can, but it's just cute. Not amazing.

Is this supposed to be considered cute? This is not just a mockery, it's a's a SHAMOCKERY. "I hate my husband pie" ?? The only thing worse than that is having that uttered in a hideous southern accent. B-A-D...and frankly, it being this bad is an insult to all womenkind.

A pretty entertaining film. It's sort of like Juno for adults. Keri Russell is very strong as a waitress stuck in an unhappy life when she discovers she's pregnant. An affair with her doctor rejuvenates her life. Oh yeah, and apparently she's a pie genius and makes really good pies. Nothing too heavy here, it's good enough for a watch. There's a really good turn by Andy Griffith as the diner's grumpy owner.

A good film because it managed to balance the comedy and the drama. There are a lot of quirky characters but the film respects instead of making fun of them. Although the ending was too optimistic, I felt like the characters deserved where they ended up. Although the middle meandered at times, it was more than forgiven due to the smart script and deft direction. I don't think it's as great as critics made it out to be. Sure, it's tragic that the person who directed this film had been murdered (she was also an actress) but it's inexcusable to hold this movie in such a high regard because of that. It's good but not great. If one is into small town comedies with strong characters and unconventional storylines, this is a winner.

Pie in the face

I'm shocked about the good reviews this movie (i can't even bring myself to call it a film) is getting. The script is awful, the acting was poor, the characters were cliché, the editing and sound design were sub-par, the direction was confusing, the dialog was just plain un-believable. Of course I'm sad that she was murdered, but that doesn't make this nearly unwatchable POS any better.

The most offensive part of the whole movie was the victim mentality of the lead. She's always waiting for that next thing to save her. Her job sucks but she's trapped. Her marriage sucks but she's trapped. And of course, she gets saved in the end by her knight in wrinkled armor. No thanks to her.

And a word about pies, if I may. WTF? Is there any reason for her talent besides a not-too-clever plot d...
