Mystic Pizza [DVD] [1988]

Donald Petrie's Mystic Pizza was one of the harder-to-find laserdiscs for many years, having appeared (and promptly disappeared) from Image Entertainment, so this DVD is a double treat, solving the rarity problem with a low-priced, high-resolution edition of a beautiful movie. This edition looks great -- though one sort of longs to see how this picture might look in high-definition -- and sounds very good; this release, from 2001, marked the point where DVDs began catching up to laser in terms of sound. It's also been encoded with 16 chapters, which is barely adequate for a picture like this -- it gets there by not dividing the credit sequence off from the introduction to the restaurant, or Kat's first meeting with her employer from the vignette with her mother, little matters like that which make this disc a little less valuable than it otherwise might be. It opens to the menu automatically on start-up and the bonus features include the original trailer and a choice of French and Spanish subtitles, English and Spanish stereo surround, and French mono.

    Synopsis


    Mystic Pizza
    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. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Early Julia Roberts film that sustains itself throughout, and is definitely worth seeing. All performances are very good. Watch for a small role by Matt Damon too.

      Late teen angst at its best. Stellar cast - Julia Roberts at her most beautiful, and a "thin" Vincent D'Nofrio withe comedic hillarity provided by Lilly Taylor and Conchetta Ferrell.

      This is one of Julia Roberts earlier roles. It was entertaining. I would say this is more of a movie that women would enjoy.
