WAITRESS

It's been a week since I saw the film WAITRESS, and I forgot to review it. I guess that doesn't say much for the film. What happened to the director is terrible (she was murdered before the film was released), particularly since most of the problems in the film point to a first-time screenwriter with some talent that has yet to be fully developed.

It's a nice story, with good acting, but the characters are very one-dimensional (yet frequently
they speak out of character, and all with the same voice). Several actors rise above the material, most notably Andy Griffith, who might even be a long-shot for supporting actor. Unfortunately, most of the third act is predictable melodrama with no real emotional payoff.
