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."
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.
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.
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.Published on Feb. 12 2009 by Laura Manias
