Critic Reviews for Moonstruck
This is a movie that makes you want to sing "Boheme" and walk in the moonlight and move to Brooklyn.
An American movie with foreign-film sensibilities, Moonstruck's depths come from their perfect balance of writing and direction.
It isn't great art -- it`s too closely concentrated on immediate emotional effect for that -- but it is highly sophisticated craftsmanship.
There's an old-fashioned romanticism about the picture, a sweet, gentle approach to love and family life. But this is kept from seeming sappy by the picture's tough-minded, almost abrasive sense of humor.
Audience Reviews for Moonstruck
Good movie about a realistic family, although I'm surprised that both Cher and Olympia Dukakis won Academy awards.
Rose: Do you love him, Loretta? Loretta Castorini: Aw, ma, I love him awful. Rose: Oh, God, that's too bad.
nice romantic comedy
