One approaches "star vehicles" with caution, and Cher is so wildly unpredictable that caution is sometimes needed, but here, throw caution to the wind: "Moonstruck" is one of the most delightful, beguiling comedies you will ever see. It is a wonderful example of ensemble acting, with the principal characters working superbly together to reinforce the warmth and comedy. Cher and Dukakis turn in superb performances as daughter and mother, Dukakis giving a beautifully modulated, controlled rendition. Cher is a revelation, both visually and dramatically. If all you have seen of Cage is the appalling "Leaving Los Vegas" or the travesty that was "Captain Corelli's Mandolin", forget them and see him play an operatic character, the baker who loves Puccini and who lives his life like a character from grand opera. There are some delightful moments when the script matches the operatic soundtrack -- "Your tiny hand is frozen" is a hoot -- and some of Dukakis's acid comments to Cher are beautifully timed, delivered dead-pan, and immensely effective. The Italian food which features heavily in almost every scene will make your mouth water: it is impossible to watch Dukakis cooking breakfast without wishing for a place at her table. This is the movie to put in your DVD player on a wet Sunday afternoon, grab some chocolates and a cashmere blanket, sit back, and enjoy!
