THE WEDDING MOVIE OF THE WEEK: 80s coming of age sleeper – Mystic Pizza

While not “about” a wedding, there is one in there, qualifying Mystic Pizza for our series. This coming-of-age story  is a delicious mix of comedy, pathos and something lacking in both wedding movies and non wedding movies lately: great characters.  Three feisty girls learning about life, love, and running a pizzeria, one well played by a pre-Pretty Woman Julia Roberts. Enjoy this little piece of the 80s.  Recommended pairing – a thin crust pie with pepperoni and onions.

If you landed here actually looking for pizza in Mystic? I’m a big proponent of the communities on Chowhound – try this thread.

Note: “Wedding Movie Wednesday” is now “The Wedding Movie Of The Week.”  The only people finding my movie recs were my mom (love u mom!) and a girl in Tuscaloosa named Wednesday.
