After some 25 years this romance/comedy by Canadian director Norman Jewison still holds its position as one of the best in this category. I have never been a fan of Cher, but like her in this film. A good film to watch to give you a 'lift' for the day.

It works as a drama but not as a comedy.

Glorious romantic farce, with Cher as Loretta, a dutiful, middle age Italian widow, planning a "sensible" 2nd marriage to stolid Danny Aiello...who then falls for his sexy younger brother (Nicholas Cage). Along the way, Loretta dyes her hair, gets a sexy makevoer, and turns into...Cher. Great supporting cast: Aiello, Olympia Dukakis as Loretta's world-weary mother, and John Mahoney as a silver fox outfoxed.

Must See - Moonstruck (1987) 102 min. What could I say about this movie that hasn't already been said. The film is charming, funny, and incredibly satisfying to watch. Each character is wonderful; each relationship and interraction is a treat to behold. Borrow this movie and enjoy a delightful picture. 1988 Oscar winner for Best Actress (Cher), Supporting Actress (Olympia Dukakis), Original Screenplay and nominated for Best Picture, Director, and Supporting Actor (Vincent Gardenia)
