Mystic Pizza is a solid conventional coming-of-age drama held together by three strong performances from Annabeth Gish, Julia Roberts, and Lili Taylor. The three work at a pizza parlor in Mystic, Connecticut, and the movie mostly follows their romantic interests over the course of months. Because the movie is set in Connecticut nothing too crazy happens and everything works out in the end for the girls and the pizza parlor. Vincent D'Onofrio has a good role as Lili Taylor's aspiring husband, and if you keep your eyes open you'll see a young Matt Damon in one scene.

Mystic Pizza is a 1988 American romantic comedy-drama film directed by Donald Petrie and starring Annabeth Gish, Julia Roberts, and Lili Taylor. The film marked Petrie's feature film directorial debut and Matt Damon's film debut. The film has gained a large cult following since its release.

The film received mostly favorable reviews, who praised the performances by the three lead actresses. It received "two thumbs up" from popular film critics Siskel and Ebert, giving particular praise to the three female leads, including Gish, whom Ebert likened to a "young Katharine Hepburn".
