Mystic Pizza Reviews

July 23, 2019
Don't be put off by the ambiguous-sounding title and the lack of star names. Mystic Pizza is a marvelously warm and funny comedy-drama that is frankly sentimental but never cloying.

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.

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.
