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.

The Wedding Movie of the Week: Hilarious Comedy- Bridesmaids

Can you talk awesome wedding movies without the brilliant 2011 comedy Bridesmaids coming up? I think not.  Bridesmaids was a triple threat: a chick flick with enough gross out comedy to keep fiancés laughing too, AND it proved to Hollywood that YES women go to the movies and spend as much as 14 year old boys, so make us some stuff with good storylines and characters, OK?  This one’s a surefire hit with the whole wedding party.  It certainly it made the My LittleFlower Shop staff crack up. Enjoy!
