Moonstruck > Wiki


In this glowingly atmospheric comedy, a young Italian-American woman, bitter after having been widowed by a speeding bus, makes a practical decision to marry a longtime friend for stability and security, even though her feelings for him are tepid at best. But when she falls in love with her fiance's estranged one-handed younger brother, screwball sparks fly. Great, subtle performances and a warm regard for the film's Bronx milieu highlight the film. Academy Award Nominations: 6, including Best Picture, Best Director. Academy Awards: 3, including Best Actress--Cher, Best Supporting Actress--Olympia Dukakis, and Best Original Screenplay.

My favorite scene …

Pros: Funny, romantic, and beautiful to the eye.      Cons: Might inspire you to behave like lovestruck mooncalf.      The Bottom Line: A lovely and amusing romantic comedy with some delightful performances.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. Does new love always make us look as foolish as we may be feeling on the inside? Can the moon really influence us, especially when we fall …
