A 1989 Julia Robert film. She's one of 3 girls who work at a pizza parlor in Mystic, Connecticut, and each has her own set of guy troubles. Julia, the living-on-the-wild-side, sort-of-slutty townie falls for the slumming rich kid who comes to town; her sister (brainy, headed to Yale on scholarship) falls for a married man; the other one is in love with a big galoot of a local fisherman but just can't make up her mind to commit to marriage. And the fat-momma owner of the pizza place years for the day when the snobbish food critic will show up and sample her wares.
Order a pizza, pop the lid off a Pale Ale, kick of your shoes, and sit back for a kick-ass of a movie. It's great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious entertainment May 15 2003
Format:VHS Tape
There's a line from American Pie in which one of the young guys declares, "Women are like fine wine. They just get better with age." So true. All of the women in this movie are living proof of that, especially Annabeth Gish, who went from being merely girl-next-door pretty in Mystic Pizza, to the mature goddess we have seen on the X-Files.
Mystic Pizza is very much an ensemble movie, with no one person standing out above the rest. A very strong female cast is counterpointed by some solid male performances, such as that of the always superb Vince D'Onofrio - also check out The Cell, with Jennifer Lopez.
Beautifully filmed in Conn. New England, the movie is also a visual delight, and captures the reassuring simplicity of life in an Atlantic fishing community. I love Nova Scotia and Maine for the same reason. The original Mystic Pizza restaurant is still going strong and their website is well worth a visit.
All in all, a very sweet movie about real people and real family situations, and it remains one of my favorite movies of all time. I literally never tire of this modern classic. My only quibble is that the last spoken line is disturbingly unimaginative and anti-climactic. After crafting such a superb screenplay, the writers just seemed to run out of inspiration at the last hurdle. As Mr. Spock would say, "Fascinating."

4.0 out of 5 stars Have A Slice Of Pizza Feb. 28 2003
1988´¿s Mystic Pizza is an enjoyable film about three young Portuguese women who work at a pizzeria in the fishing/resort town of Mystic, CT. Julia Roberts stars as Daisy, a headstrong girl whose fast and loose behavior has not endeared her to her mother. Annabeth Gish plays her younger sister Kat, whose is the opposite of Daisy. She is quiet, brainy and is going to Yale to study astronomy. Lili Taylor plays Jojo who is the girl´¿s best friend. She has a quirky and carefree disposition and at the beginning of the film leaves her fianc├ę, Bill, played by the underrated Vincent D´¿Onofrio, who is a local fisherman at the alter. The movie centers around the girl´¿s place of employment, Mystic Pizza, which is run by the gruff, but caring Leona (Conchata Ferrell) whose pizza is famously regarded and guards the secret to her sauce with a zealot´¿s devotion. Both Daisy and Kat fall for guys during the summer, Daisy with a lazy, knockabout trust fund kid Charlie (Adam Storke) and Kat with Tim Travers, a wealthy architect whom Kat is babysitting his daughter Phoebe. The movie is basically a predictable romantic comedy, but the actors are so likeable, that you´¿ll find yourself being caught up in their stories and director Donald Petrie perfectly captures the beautiful southern Connecticut coast (the film was shot in Mystic as well as other Connecticut towns and Rhode Island). This film marked the first starring role for Julia Roberts and while it didn´¿t catapult her to immediate stardom it set the blueprint for the type of role that would make her into the most popular actress in Hollywood. The film is also notable as it marks the film debut of Matt Damon who has a blink and you miss part as the ridiculously named Steamer who is Charlie´¿s brother and appears in a scene at a dinner with Daisy meeting Charlie´¿s family for the first time.

This story followesing the messed up love lives of three young waitresses is good because young people can relate. Some can relate to Kat (Anabelle Gish) who is the 'smart sister' with a crush on a more sophisticated man as opposed to fisherman like Bill. Some can relate to Daisy (Julia Roberts), 'The gorgeous sister' who is going no where but the back of sports cars. Others can relate to JoJo (Lili Taylor), a girl who's only way to show love is through sex. I think a lot of guys can relate to the male charecters also, like Bill (Vincent D'Onofrio), a man in love with a woman who won't commit or Charlie, (Adam Storke) a token rich boy who uses anything he can to get back at his father (including Daisy), and then there is Tim (William R. Moses) a gutless, cheating, liar. But despite thier different personalities the girls are all held together by love, Leona, and Mystic Pizza.
The chemistry between Lili Taylor (JoJo) and Vincent D'Onofrio (Bill) made their charecters very believable as compared to William Moses (Tim) and Annabelle Gish (Kat). Julia Roberts was amazing on her own, she always is, but Lili Taylor was outstanding.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three small town waitresses and their romances Jan. 20 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This 1988 romantic comedy is set in Mystic, Connecticut, a working-class fishing town where most of the inhabitants have a Portuguese background. The three stars are waitresses in the local pizzeria called Mystic Pizza. It's the summer after they've just graduated from high school and the most important thing in their lives are their romantic attachments. Lili Taylor walks down the aisle with her future husband but has cold feet at the last minute. Annabeth Gish, college bound, earns extra money babysitting and doesn't expect to fall in love with the married father of the child she babysits for. And Julia Roberts, then 21, with a yearning to rise above her prescribed life, falls in love with a wealthy Yale law student.
How it all plays out is predictable, with a laugh or two along the way. The film barely held my attention as my interest in the romantic goings on was lukewarm. More interesting to me though, was the social structure of the town, located near an upper class area and the sharply drawn differences between the two places. One of the most memorable scenes is when some Yale college students come into a working class bar and invite Julia Roberts to join them in a game of pool.
If you like romantic comedy, you might get a chuckle out of this.

I enjoyed this movie, but it was kind of cliche and boring in some parts. But it does complete a Julia Roberts collection.
