Overview

Three teenagers learn a lot about life and love one summer in this romantic comedy-drama. Kat Annabeth Gish, Daisy Julia Roberts, and Jojo Lili Taylor are three working-class women just out of high school who have jobs at the same pizza parlor in the resort community of Mystic, Connecticut. Kat wants to study astronomy at Yale; when she starts baby-sitting for Tim William R. Moses, a wealthy Yale graduate summering in Mystic, she finds herself falling in love with him, even though he's married and nearly twice her age. Daisy, who isn't sure what she wants from life, starts going with Charlie Adam Storke, a recent law school dropout, though she starts to think that it may be more to rebel against her family than out of genuine affection. And Jojo is attracted to Bill Vincent D'Onofrio, but she doesn't want to get married she's already left him at the altar once; when Bill announces that he's no longer willing to have sex without marriage, she has to decide if his affections are worth a lifetime commitment. Conchata Ferrell appears in a supporting role as Leona, the proprietor of the pizza parlor, who zealously guards the secret formula of her sauce.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Daniel Weizmann
A quirky cornerstone of cute-and-corny '80s moviemaking, Mystic Pizza follows three working class high school age girls as they learn important life lessons while serving slices in the resort town of Mystic, Connecticut. Julia Roberts made her first serious big-screen impression as Daisy, a rebellious soul in search of a future. When law school dropout Charlie Adam Strout courts her to anger his upper-class family, Daisy gets schooled in self-respect 101. Annabelle Gish is also memorable as Kat, who falls in love with a married Yale grad while babysitting his kid. Nostalgia is half the fun here: bad haircuts, homey sentimentality, and class tensions of the Reaganomics era abound. The brand new wide-screen DVD edition of the film includes the theatrical trailer, and is the perfect accompaniment for a 12" deep dish with everything on it.
All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Her first major film role didn't make Julia Roberts a star, but Mystic Pizza did make great use of the actress' earthy sensuality and onscreen charisma. Playing one of a trio of working-class young women in coastal New England, Roberts provided the va-va-voom to Lili Taylor's quirkiness and Annabeth Gish's quiet intensity. Decidedly matriarchal and working-class in its depictions of these young characters' lives, the film uses the pizza parlor of kindly Leona (Conchata Ferrell) as a symbol of both the bond of female friendship and the joys and limitations of life in a seaside resort town. Mystic Pizza splits its storytelling time equally between the romantic entanglements of its three heroines, but a subtle class consciousness colors even these stock scenarios: Kat (Gish) glimpses the dissatisfactions of Ivy League privilege in the marriage of her wealthy boss; Daisy (Roberts) has to reconcile her boyfriend's blue-blooded loafing with her own hard-working existence; and Jojo (Taylor) has to choose between a comfortable marriage and an uncertain future. Alternately cheery, somber, and melodramatic, the sometimes uneven Mystic Pizza nonetheless serves up an engaging, if misty-eyed, slice of small-town life.
