Shelly deftly achieves a tone pitched between fantasy and reality, its levity belying an astute and humane study of an unhappy relationship steeped in inertia.

Wally Hammond Time Out | November 18, 2011

Funny, gentle, unpatronising, if occasionally naive and quirky.

Bob Mondello NPR.org | October 18, 2008

The film is hardly flawless - even the pie-baking scenes sometimes seem half-baked - but it's hard not to read promise into every frame, and to wonder what Shelly might have cooked up in the future.

Waitress is not a perfectly cut, factory-line Safeway-brand slice. It does, though, serve up a generous deep-dish portion, homemade and heartfelt, that leaves a sweet taste goes down.

Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel | May 24, 2007

This bittersweet romantic farce teeters and then tips into precious, a forgivable sin once you know this sweet movie's sad history.

Geoff Pevere Toronto Star | May 11, 2007

While Shelly's film trades in an especially outrageous form of girl-movie self-consciousness, she's completely sincere when it comes to making her heroine the irresistible repository of our sympathies.

John Hartl Seattle Times | May 11, 2007

This is an ensemble piece in which everyone is allowed to shine.
