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.

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]

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.

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.

"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.

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

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