Matt Greene This is such a pleasant movie, yet never ignores the difficulties within love and family. The whole thing is classy, bubbly goodness, and the dinner scene at the end is beyond wonderful.
novagirl11 I'm finally checking off some of the classic movies I've never seen!..not a big Nicholas Cage fan, but Cher is great and I love the stereotypical Italian family!
bigverybadtom I have seen all the ads, but never saw this movie until now, wondering if it was worth the hype. Yes and no.Cher plays a young widowed bookkeeper living with her stereotypical quirky Italian extended family, when an ethnic Sicilian man who was a friend of her late husband proposes to her and she accepts, not really loving him but wanting a husband. But the man has to visit Sicily to visit his dying mother, and he wants to reconcile with his estranged brother, so he has Cher do the job. Trouble is, when Cher visits the brother, he wants her for himself...This is a romantic comedy, not just involving Cher but other family members and people they know, and we wonder how everything is going to turn out. The ending is a decent surprise at least.
phtdesign if i had to pick 2 films that i could only see for the rest of my life, this would be number one. number two would be All About Eve. i watch Moonstruck every time i run across it on TV. the writing is AMAZING, so many zingers AND memorable heartfelt real moments and the characters are so well written. the casting is perfect down to every last role - especially olympia dukakis and the great julie bovasso, who is such a wonderful new york character actress (i.e. john travolta's mother in Saturday night fever). sadly she is no longer with us. trivia note: she was known as an excellent voice coach for people who have to do NY accents.everything i've said above (save for the actors of course) can be applied to All ABout Eve!
