Emanuel Levy

The only novelty of this familiar small-town coming-of-age saga is that its women are Portugueste-American, but it's laced with humor and well-acted, and the gorgeous-looking Julia Roberts shows strong potential for becoming a major star.

One of the rare "chick flicks" built on wit and sincerity ... as opposed to cliche and artifice.

Groucho Reviews

Though the film's heart is in the right place, somehow it all winds up about as flat as one of the celebrated pies at Mystic Pizza. [Blu-ray]

Christopher Lloyd
Sarasota Herald-Tribune

To put it bluntly, Mystic Pizza is more or less a movie version of a soap opera, layered in with some quirky humor and gigantic '80s hair.
