Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Coming-of-age story flirts with melodrama but is saved by wonderful performances."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"A wacky and wonderful movie about three young women friends and their misadventures with love and sex."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"To put it bluntly, Mystic Pizza is more or less a movie version of a soap opera, layered in with some quirky humor and gigantic '80s hair."
‑ Christopher Lloyd, Sarasota Herald-Tribune
"Delightful comedy-drama gave the luminous Roberts her first substantial role"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"One of the rare "chick flicks" built on wit and sincerity ... as opposed to cliche and artifice."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"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."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"One of the most charming coming of age movies ever made."
‑ Blake Davis, KFOR Channel 4 News
