Mystic Pizza Reviews

March 26, 2009
Genuine and moving.

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.

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

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.

"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.
