EBERT The movie stars Cher, as an Italian-American widow in her late 30s, but she is not the only moonstruck one in the film. There is the moonlit night, for example, that her wise, cynical mother (Olympia Dukakis) goes out for dinner by herself, and meets a middle-age university professor (John Mahoney) who specializes in seducing his young students, but who finds in this mature woman a certain undeniable sexuality. There is the furtive and yet somehow sweet affair that Cher’s father (Vincent Gardenia) has been carrying on for years with the ripe, disillusioned Anita Gillette.

And at the heart of the story, there is Cher’s astonishing discovery that she is still capable of love. As the movie opens, she becomes engaged to Mr. Johnny Cammareri (Danny Aiello), not so much out of love as out of weariness. But after he flies to Sicily to be at the bedside of his dying mother, she goes to talk to Mr. Johnny’s estranged younger brother (Nicolas Cage), and is thunderstruck when they are drawn almost instantly into a passionate embrace.

“Moonstruck” was directed by Norman Jewison and written by John Patrick Shanley, and one of their accomplishments is to allow the film to be about all of these people (and several more, besides). This is an ensemble comedy, and a lot of the laughs grow out of the sense of family that Jewison and Shanley create. There are small, hilarious moments involving the exasperation that Dukakis feels for her ancient father-in-law (Feodor Chaliapin), who lives upstairs with his dogs. (In the course of a family dinner, she volunteers, “Feed one more bite of my food to your dogs, old man, and I'll kick you to death!”) As Cher’s absent fiance lingers at his mother’s bedside, Cher and Cage grow even more desperately passionate, and Cher learns the secret of the hatred between the two brothers: One day Aiello made Cage look the wrong way at the wrong time, and he lost his hand in a bread-slicer. Now he wears an artificial hand and carries an implacable grudge in his heart

Pleasant enough light viewing, albeit rather caricatured. Some mildly amusing scenes, some poignancy. Made in 1987 and rather sexist, but perhaps that was typical for Italian-American families of the era.

Cher is excellent as Loretta, and Olympia Dukakis as her mother. They manage to look alike and both succeed in coming across as Italian.

Rated PG but the storyline is unlikely to appeal to anyone under the age of about 15.

A woman falls for her fiance's brother.

Okay. A bizarre Nicholas Cage performance makes it worthwhile. ( )

Substance: Another modern romance where the wedding comes after the honeymoon. Italian family in NYC plays to the stereotypes, but entertainingly so.
Style: The screenplay is actually good, barring the moral sell-out to seventies sensibilities. Cher is gorgeous, and a good actress. I loved her mother (O. Dukakis). ( )
  librisissimo | Feb 5, 2010 |
One of my main "feel good"-movies. Cher is lovely, and Nicolas Cage rather sexy as an one-handed baker with a passion for opera. ( )
