3 stars out of 5 -- [Julia Roberts'] role as a waitress with big dreams an an even bigger heart set her on the road to PRETTY WOMAN superstardom.
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
Rating: 4/5 -- Delightful comedy-drama gave the luminous Roberts her first substantial role
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
Though in essence this is little more than a girls' romance novel brought to life, it has been filled with heart and humor.
New York Times
...Gish is subtle, Taylor goofy and mercurial. Best of them is Julia Roberts....[She] shows a priceless movie quality: a real sense of danger and unpredictability...
Los Angeles Times
Rating: 3/5 -- Coming-of-age story flirts with melodrama but is saved by wonderful performances.
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.
