Product Description

When Johnny Cammareri (Danny Aiello) goes to visit his dying mother in Sicily, he asks his long-term girlfriend Loretta (Cher) to contact his estranged brother Ronny (Nicolas Cage) and invite him to their upcoming wedding. Ronny, a hot-headed baker, turns out to be everything his brother is not, and soon he and his prospective sister-in-law are embarking on a passionate affair. Oscars were won by Cher, supporting actress Olympia Dukakis, and writer John Patrick Shanley.

From Amazon.co.uk

Remember the outfit Cher wore to the Oscars when she won an Academy Award for her performance in this 1987 film? Ay-yi-yi. The actress' more retiring character in this infectious comedy leaps several psychological hurdles just giving her hair a permanent. But then the original screenplay of Moonstruck, by John Patrick Shanley (Joe Versus the Volcano), is a wonderful, gently satirical tale of an Italian-American family dealing with repression and dissatisfaction against a backdrop of cultural expectations. Cher is focused and funny as a widow who feels she should marry an older fellow (Danny Aiello), but then falls for his black-sheep brother (Nicolas Cage). Olympia Dukakis and Vincent Gardenia are perfect as her parents, and John Mahoney (of TV's Frasier) has a memorable, small role as a middle-aged man on the make who gets a lecture from Dukakis's character. Shanley's dialogue is comically stylised in a way that makes one appreciate how much words can inform an actor's performance. Taking its cues from him and director Norman Jewison (And Justice for All), the cast immerse themselves in a pool of hilariously operatic emotion. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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!

Format: VHS Tape
Jewison and screenwriter John Patrick Shanley have done in this picture for New York Italian-American families what Woody Allen has previously done for their Jewish counterparts in numerous of his earlier films. The result is a simple story, but wonderfully warm and enjoyable, with a deliciously funny script and top-rate performances from all of its stars, especially the dual Oscar winners, Cher and Dukakis, and from Vincent Gardenia, himself nominated as supporting actor. Cher, in particular, after her very serious roles and solemn performances in such films as "Silkwood" and "Mask", shows she has a genuine gift for character comedy and is a perfect foil to Cage who once again belies his physical appearance with a portrayal which exudes rugged magneticism and charm through a rough-edged exterior. Shanley's script is a delight throughout and the experienced Jewison directs both it and all his players (including those in the subsidiary roles) with panache and a knowing eye, thereby adding romantic comedies to the list of film genres which has been graced by his shrewd and versatile direction. This is certainly a movie which can be watched and immensely enjoyed time and time again.

Format: VHS Tape
The basic story has been told a thousand times before - girl meets boy, they fall in love, can't be together, end up together. Yet somehow, 'Moonstruck' is a million times better than all of your 'Four Weddings..'. It carries a much more mature tone, and just manages to hit the spot. It involves many sub-plots, which all link into the same theme. It is brilliantly acted, particularly by the oscar-winning Cher, who proves she's an excellent actress in her own right. How this film missed out on 'Best Picture 1987' is beyond me.
Watch it, and be amazed.

If you enjoy dry Italian-American humour this film is one of the must sees of all time...combining all the ingredients of a warm and loving comedy. The script is sharp and incisive.....Each part is superbly cast with performances to match.....I always have to single out Olympia Dukakis in this type of role..Her empathy and understanding of life always come through with total fun combined with a light hearted touch of cynicism.
........The long overdue release of Dukakis in the made for TV film Young at Heart is eagerly awaited by all who love this genre - a 'little Italy' story that includes the final screen performance of Frank Sinatra in a brief cameo role.

Moonstruck is a feel good film with superb acting, script and direction.

If you love movies like "When Harry met Sally" or "Sleepless in Seattle", if you love Hollywood movies of the 50s and 60s full of glamour, romance,brilliant sense of humour and a wonderful soundtrack, if you estimate extraordinary actors like Olympia Dukakis, Nicolas Cage, Cher etc. you will certainly love this movie and soon put it in the category of YOUR all-time favourites. "Moonstruck" is grand Hollywood cinema par excellence!

Moonstruck on Blu ray is definately the best looking version of the movie I have seen and far surpasses the standard DVD version. Sharp picture, deep colour pallett and very little grain (actually what little there is is barely noticable). Its also a wonderful movie and Cher's oscar winning performance her best to date. If you love this movie ...This is the version/format to buy

Moonstruck is perfection. The ultimate love story of a woman who settles for love with the wrong man and then meets his brother and falls for him instead! Great escapism with the ugly duckling makeover, humour and lovely views of New York. All the cast are fab and add their own elements to the story. Cher deserved her oscar for this role. My all-time favourite film.

This is a film about Italian Catholics in the USA, in the 1980s. Loretta – very well played by Cher – is a down-to-earth bookkeeper, whose husband died suddenly seven years previously. She decides to accept a marriage proposal from the middle-aged Johnny, whom she likes but does not love. He hurries away to the deathbed of his mother, instructing Loretta to get in touch with his estranged brother Ronny. Loretta does just that…

It’s good fun, with some bittersweet moments, some thought-provoking scenes, and some mildly amusing, almost farcical scenes of confusion and misunderstanding. Nicely done, not too caricatured, and a good ending. Recommended.
