“Mystic Pizza” (1988) is a nice little teen angst, coming-of-age movie, but there really isn’t anything special about it. The plot’s kind of cookie-cutter. I think its legendary buildup revolves around Julia Roberts. She’s likeable. It was her first big break and I think people make the movie out to be better than it is because of it. I didn’t much like her back in the early 1990s when she was The Most Important Human In The World (kinda like Adele is now). Maybe if I had seen this movie back then I would have liked Roberts more back then.
