Ashamed about her social status and dreading the prospect of turning 18, Cara-Ethyl winds up having a life-altering night with an older pizza delivery guy (Ethan Embry) who offers to let her come with him on his rounds after he brings her birthday dinner to her party, where no one showed up.

Critic Reviews for Pizza

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (9)

  • 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.

    June 9, 2006 | Rating: 3/4
  • A bittersweet, persuasively acted comedy whose tone recalls '80s teen films.

    February 3, 2006
  • 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.

    January 20, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • At the end of her spontaneous date, she says it's been the best night of her life. It will not be one of yours.

    January 20, 2006 | Rating: 1/4
  • Thin, flavorless and heavily garnished with contrivance, this odd couple comedy serves up little but stale whimsy.

    January 19, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • Forget 30-minute delivery -- this brand of indie quirkiness congealed in the late '90s.

Audience Reviews for Pizza

  • Feb 21, 2011
    Cara-Ethel has to be one of the least appealing character names in film history and serves as a sad commentary on the lonely life this young girl leads. But Cara (Kylie Sparks) has spunk and wit and intelligence hiding in the unappealing body that nature has given her. Celebrating her eighteenth birthday with only her mom, and an imaginary friend, Cara strikes up a conversation with the pizza delivery guy and winds up spending an evening with Matt (Ethan Embry), riding around in his truck, talking and experiencing life. This was a tender story about a girl that seems to have developed a pretty healthy attitude despite her disadvantages. The actors really drew this viewer into the story and made us believe these two could actually be friends on the spur of the moment. What began as an act of pity, became a connection that benefited both characters. there were minor quibbles about a few of the choices that went into the setup and some of the supporting characters had little depth, but overall a production that kept it real.

    It was a cute, quirky movie. I enjoyed it. Way to "play" the guitar off-screen Ethan! They sure snuck a lot of "fucks" into this "PG-13" movie.
