One of my most favorite movies. I love the dynamics between members of this family. And Cher is the best!

Moonstruck is quirky and wonderful, and it has a fairy tale feel. It's definitely my favorite Nicolas Cage movie and probably my favorite Cher movie, too. Olympia Dukakis makes everything she is in better. Its writer John Patrick Shanley went on to write and direct Doubt (he wrote the play also). Moonstruck is rated PG.

One needs to be over the age of 40 before one can fully appreciate Moonstruck -- well over the age of 40. First saw the film theatrically when I was 20. I thought I was mature. I wasn't. Film sailed passed me in ways I wasn't equipped to recognize. 2 decades elapse. I catch it again, by chance, late at night, on cable at some crummy motel in suburban Denver. OMG!!!! It's a work of well observed genius -- but only if one has first LIVED.

Good movie. Cher was very good, and got the oscar for best actress. It is neat to see these old movies to see young actors before they became famous. Look for Canadian Cynthia Dale.

I thought the movie was OK. I really enjoyed the family; I thought their characters were funny and interesting. Cher did a good job, though I am not sure it was 'Oscar' winning worthy.

Loved the movie and Cher was great as Loretta. Awesome performances by both Nicholas Cage and Cher.

Honestly, I'm not sure if I like or dislike this movie. I must say, it was one of the oddest movies I have ever seen. I do not like Cher but she was sorta nice. Nicholas Cage, I mean come on, it's Nick Cage! But, I must say, Cher is like 20 years older than Cage in this movie, making it hilarious to watch them kiss and all. Haha!

If you want to watch a real quirky movie, go for it!

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.
