Waitress is a movie you would like a lot, but you have no desire to see. The film first premiered at Sundance and was a huge hit. Fox Searchlight bought it (hint: they buy the good films – Napoleon Dynamite, Garden State and a small film called Little Miss Sunshine), and they’ve been holding tons of sneak preview screenings throughout the country. And guess what? People love it. I have yet to find one person who didn’t. Surprisingly, even guy-guys love it. Still not sold? Check out some of the video clips after the jump.

Andy Griffith (old Joe) tells Keri Russell her horoscope for the day.
Fox Searchlight seems to have the Sundance purchase down. Last year they bought Little Miss Sunshine. Two years earlier, the studio picked up Garden State and Napoleon Dynamite. This year the studio went crazy and made four purchases: The Savages, Joshua, Once and Waitress. Unfortunately I’ve only seen one of the four films (Joshua, which has good horror/thriller appeal). We waited in line for two hours to see Waitress (that was the film will all the buzz) and we still didn’t get in. But everyone totally dug this flick (it currently has an 8.2 imdb rating), so I’m pretty sure this will be Searchlight’s Sundance 2007 breakout film. So while you might not think you want to see this movie yet, chances are you will. Be an early adopter, here is your chance.
