Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine75 - Pies have seen their fair share of screen-time. Who could forget the pie scene in The Help or, for that matter, in American Pie? But if you're hankering for a slice of quirky and adorable - WAITRESS, written and directed by Adrienne Shelly’s before her untimely death, weaves a tale of homespun Americana that's so visually caloric, you could gain 5 lbs with every viewing.
