Our Score
This romantic comedy contains one of Julia Roberts's first major roles, and it's still one of her best. It follows the ups and downs of Roberts, pal Lili Taylor and sister Annabeth Gish, who get into trouble with love while working at a pizza parlour in their home town of Mystic, Connecticut. Director Donald Petrie serves up a fine coming-of-age tale, successfully interlacing the story of the girls' problems of the heart with some delightfully comic moments and astute observations about romance. Hard to believe now, but Gish was the bigger star at the time.


Three pizza parlour waitresses reach turning points in their lives, but help each other through their problems. Kat falls for a man whose kids she babysits while about to head off to university, her sister Daisy starts dating a man from a richer background, and their friend Jojo has cold feet about her wedding. Comedy, starring Julia Roberts, Annabeth Gish and Lili Taylor.
