The real-life tragedy of Adrienne Shelly's murder last November is in complete contrast to this funny, charming tale of Jenna, who, stuck in a marriage to a man she loathes, inconveniently pregnant with his child, oppressed by long hours waiting on tables for a grouchy boss, finds relief in baking pies. Shelly keeps us laughing through all the tough and tender twists and turns of her emotional roller-coaster.
