Mystic Pizza (1988)


Three teenage girls come of age while working at a pizza parlor in the Connecticut town of Mystic. (IMDb)

There’s something about the charming seaside small town setting that makes the rather fluffy and one-dimensional plot lines sit well in the end, creating a pleasant, down-to-earth vibe that’s sprinkled with enough boy-drama (married man and virgin; rich kid and waitress; marriage-ready man and free spirit girl) and sweetness (Ferrell and the mild restaurant storyline are a nice touch) to keep you engaged, if not captivated. Nothing too deep or unique here, but nothing offensive.
