    TITLE: Mystic Pizza
    GENRE: Romantic coming of age comedy
    CAST: Julia Roberts, Annabeth Gish, Lily Taylor, Vincent D'onofrio, Adam Storke, William R Moses, Conchata Farrell and Matt Damon
    PLOT: Three teenage waitresses mix love and growing up. Most of the twists which love can take are explored here.
    RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 8.7 of 10; The acting is superb as you can tell from the cast list, and most of them can count this effort as their first big part (Well Damon's was a bit one but it was his first). The dialoge and character development flow together. The bits of humor are well concieved. The drawback is the movie's failure to really deliver on chemistry between supposed lovers. The closest it comes to chemistry is the bad that flows periodically between Taylor and D'onofrio. But, Julia Roberts at times here has never looked more like a pretty girl. After this, she's a pretty woman
    DVD BONUS: None in my copy but I'm sure this film was so important to some of our biggest names that there will eventually be look backs for sale.
    ADDED NOTES: Yup, a lot of what would become recognizable names here. If you can't recognize him, Damon is the dark haired beardy macho type with bulging biceps at the bar who takes the three bullseyes in a row bet. He has all of twenty seconds on camera but he shines!
