Mystic Pizza (1988)

Donald Petrie directs Annabeth Gish, Julia Roberts and Lili Taylor in this teen romantic comedy where three small town waitresses question their love lives on the cusp of them becoming adults.

Solid “chick flick” – sweet, salty and funny where it needs to be. Not exactly my cup of tea but I’m not the type this was intended for. Notable for its young cast who all went onto better things (look out for a baby-faced Matt Damon). The happy medium between Beaches and Dirty Dancing. Sex positive and Lili Taylor is always top value. Can’t really fault it.
