Picks and Pans Review: Now Playing

>MYSTIC PIZZA For a very thin plot involving three comely tourist-town waitresses (Julia Roberts, Annabeth Gish, Lili Taylor) and a secret recipe for tomato sauce, this comedy is surprisingly fresh and delectable.

BAT 21 Gene Hackman, as an intelligence officer stranded in the jungles of Vietnam, and Danny Glover, as the pilot who tries to rescue him, lend this true-life adventure the added zing of strong characterization.

A WINTER TAN Jackie Burroughs gives an explosive—and explicit—performance as a female schoolteacher trying to self-destruct in Mexico with booze, drugs and beach boys.

HALLOWEEN 4 Much more of the same, but much less fun.
