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]

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.

Genuine and moving.

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.

Thanks to sensitive direction by Petrie, the result is a thoroughly involving movie that doesn't resort to violence, sex or schmaltz to pack an emotional punch.

Coming-of-age story flirts with melodrama but is saved by wonderful performances.

A wacky and wonderful movie about three young women friends and their misadventures with love and sex.

Though in essence this is little more than a girls' romance novel brought to life, it has been filled with heart and humor.

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

"Mystic Pizza" does create the feeling of a small resort town and the people who live there and, amazingly, given the familiar nature of a lot of the material, it nearly always keeps us interested.

You get the general sense that the actors -- particularly Annabeth Gish and, though he is hardly featured, D'Onofrio (who was last seen as the troubled recruit in "Full Metal Jacket") -- are better than their material, but this is scant compensation.
