New York Times
Rating: 2.5/4 -- 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] Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- One of the most charming coming of age movies ever made.
KFOR Channel 4 News
Rating: 3/4 -- 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. Full Review
Rating: B- -- 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. Full Review
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. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Delightful comedy-drama gave the luminous Roberts her first substantial role
Three women, sisters Daisy and Kat and their friend Jojo, work at a pizza parlor in the town of Mystic, Connecticut, the summer after their high-school graduation and before they go their separate ways.
