Pizza will never be the Lou Malnati's deep dish of the independent film world, but its gentle pacing...makes this gem as comforting as mall pizza on a hungry day.

It's Sparks (television's Complete Savages) and Embry (Can't Hardly Wait) who carry this dual coming-of-age tale with engaging, if often raw, performances.

A bittersweet, persuasively acted comedy whose tone recalls '80s teen films.

Among slacker comedies, Pizza is never much more than mildly amusing; it isn't as witty as Slacker or as uproarious as Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, but it's a keeper.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Even performances, which could have provided spark, are wooden at best, unbelievable at worst.

The characters in this movie don't talk like real people; they all talk like overly clever screenwriters.

Embry and first-time actress Sparks have charming chemistry, but Christopher's slight screenplay wears out its welcome long before the film -- which runs a scant 80 minutes -- is over.

Thin, flavorless and heavily garnished with contrivance, this odd couple comedy serves up little but stale whimsy.

Forget 30-minute delivery -- this brand of indie quirkiness congealed in the late '90s.

If Pizza were an actual pizza, it would be half-pineapple, half-broccoli. At times, this coming-of-age comedy is quirkily saccharine, at others good-for-you sophistic.

There's a sharp and snappy tone to this irreverent comedy that keeps us laughing even though it's all a bit silly, really.

For all its quirky touches, the comedy cleaves to formula in its depiction of how they challenge and change each other.
