Mystic Pizza

The best comedies on Netflix right now 11

One of the best coming-of-age comedies on Netflix, Mystic Pizza follows the lives and loves of three teenage girls (Julia Roberts, Annabeth Gish, and Lili Taylor) who work at a pizza parlor in the Connecticut town of Mystic. As they sling pizzas and wait tables at the restaurant, the trio share their hopes, dreams, and plans of escaping their small town.

Directed by Donald Petrie, Mystic Pizza is a genuine and moving film that doesn’t resort to violence, sex or schmaltz to pack an emotional punch. Though the film flirts with melodrama, the wonderful performances of the three leads keep the film grounded in reality.
