  1. Been wanting to watch this movie but have only seen screenings happening in Paramus (which is close to Paterson, where I’m from 🙂)…would be awesome to win this prize package!

  2. I always want to watch the coming of age movie like this, saw the trailer and i find it very interesting not like any others i have watched, the comedic vibes with teenagers drama, what a combo. The fact the main cast is not so familiar with audiences make it more interesting, saw a couple reviews and all said the acting was so good. Looking forward to see this movie.

  3. What’s the deal with Barbara Streisand mispronounciation? Also, why is Maya Rudolph’s name not on the poster? 🤔

  4. This movie looks interesting! It’s refreshing for a non-sequel/franchise movie to come out every so often.

  5. I’m a big Haim fan and it’s exciting to see her in this new role. It’s super cool that she’s getting so much recognition as a breakout star!! Hope to win this giveaway because that lunch box is SO COOL. Thanks for the opportunity!!!

  6. I loved the trailer when I finally allowed myself to see it, I tried to avoid it for a long time because I wanted to see it all in the film. The first time it came on in a theater I actually ducked my head and covered my ears to keep it all a surprise. The Bowie song had me listening to Hunky Dory for the first time in many years. Can’t wait for the film.

  7. The trailer is great, love that they are newcomers too. Looks like a fun watch and loving that lunch box!!

  8. The trailer gives me the same vibe as Almost Famous to me, a mix of the era, the importance of music, and nostalgia.

  9. P.T.A. fan and I’ve been looking forward to this one because its him going back to his past while bringing in the new wave with Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s son and HAIM. Glad to see it looked good only bummer is that Sean Penn is in it.

  10. I’m a sucker for period pieces and this looks like it’s hilarious, to boot. While I have zero interest in an actual licorice pizza, I can’t wait to see this movie.

  11. Hi emma, I loved the trailer & I love alana haim! I’m a rather large fan & would be so grateful to receive the giveaway! This will actually be my first time seeing a PTA film & I look forward to it. I will be commenting & liking on Instagram as well! Happy holidays.

  12. Love the use of Bowie’s “Life on Mars?” in the trailer. It puts us right in the period and the youthful energy of each shot.

  13. I grew up in the valley and recently just moved out for college, so seeing the trailer made me tear up out of homesickness and nostalgia. I am also coincidentally HAIM’s biggest fan (or at least I consider myself to be) so I’m so incredibly excited that Alana is in this.

  14. Everything about the trailer captivated me my first watch, but it was the way they’re portraying the San Fernando Valley in the 1970’s that makes me want to watch it over and over again. Licorice Pizza was my first PTA film I’ve ever seen and I immediately had to run out and watch the rest of his works shortly after seeing it. Alana and Gary had such great chemistry!!

  15. So excited to see this one! I love love love PTA’s films and can’t wait to hear the great tunes on the big screen

  16. Can’t wait to see this gem! Big fan of PTA’s movies and the soundtrack to this rocks!

  17. Been waiting for this movie!! Really cool that PTA chose new faces for the main roles, they killed it.

  18. Love the trailer and can’t wait to see the film. I’ve caught every PTA since Magnolia in the theatre, but I may have to break the run thanks to Covid.

  19. I saw the film recently and was fortunate to see a Q&A afterward with PTA and Alana Haim. My favorite film this year – and great trailer too.

  20. I looking so forward to seeing this movie… I feel like I can really relate with the People portrayed in this trailer… it’s looks awesome

  21. When I first watched the trailer, I knew I was going to love it so much because I’ve grown up around 70’s clothing and furniture my entire life due to my family’s business and love for anything vintage. My excitement for this movie has grown so much that because I’m a fashion & film student, I did my final project for my fashion class dedicated to Licorice Pizza and the world that PTA has created. I’ve also grown up watching PTA’s filmography, so I can’t wait to watch my first PTA film on the big screen!

  22. My favorite PTA film in many years. “Almost Famous” meets “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”.

  23. I have been waiting for this movie for MONTHS!!! So excited to finally see it this week!!!! Absolutely love that lunch box too!! 😍

  24. Loved the movie! It was a beautiful slice of life and really conveyed the vibe of growing up in the valley in that era.

  25. I saw “Licorice Pizza” two weeks ago and loved it. I also got to go to the ‘pop up’ pinball arcade after, which was amazing.

  26. This may just be my favorite trailer of all time. Due to being a fan of 70s films and period pieces as well non-musical films that uses music to help supplement the story reflecting a specific era, so this is naturally up my alley. David Bowie is one of my favorite artists. “Life on Mars” is such a melancholy, heartfelt, and mystical song. PTA knew what he was doing with the selection of it. I love how the scenes cut for the trailer reflect the emotional beats of song lyrics. Clever and beautiful choice with stunning cinematography. It’s great to view a film that is so bright and full of life with young people running around and discovering themselves to contrast this unfortunate period of isolation many have youth endured during this pandemic. And for the film to be shot during it, is such a feat. I could only wish I was living in 1973 San Fernando Valley instead. Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman are refreshing to watch as newcomers to the acting scene, they look as if they came straight from the 70s.

  27. Fun film, made me laugh a lot. The love-hate push and pull relationship that Gary and Alana had was reminiscent of a 30s Screwball Comedy!

  28. As soon as I saw the trailer, I knew I needed to see this film. PTA didn’t disappoint. Favorite film of 2021.
