At times funny and clever, Moonstruck asks the questions: what does it mean to be in love? and is it ever okay to settle?

Jewison's point seems to be that love may not be perfect, but it can be sweet fun.

This is a movie that makes you want to sing "Boheme" and walk in the moonlight and move to Brooklyn.

You will not easily forget this incredibly robust family.

February 7, 2014
An American movie with foreign-film sensibilities, Moonstruck's depths come from their perfect balance of writing and direction.
February 7, 2014
Cher is simply wonderful, and the teaming with Cage an inspiration. The rest of the cast couldn't be better.
February 7, 2014
It isn't great art -- it`s too closely concentrated on immediate emotional effect for that -- but it is highly sophisticated craftsmanship.

February 7, 2014
No resistance could overcome the overfamiliarity of the situations in Moonstruck, the corniness of its dramaturgy or the banality of its message.

February 7, 2014
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.
February 7, 2014
Cher and Nicolas Cage have a ball in this ethnic comedy of manners, and there are moments of pure magic when moonlight does its romantic work.
February 7, 2014
This charming comedy show [Cher] at her warm and supple best.

Charming if erratic, Moonstruck is the unlikely marriage of undershirt-in- kitchen naturalism and urbane drawing-room farce.

It's sweet and harmless and very well meaning.

For all the emphasis on its leads, Moonstruck is a brilliantly cast ensemble piece and two smaller supporting roles deserve a special mention.

Wears its off-balance as a badge of pride. [Blu-ray]

March 4, 2011
A superior romantic comedy, with more than a touch of grace and warmth, and without resorting to the usual stupid romantic comedy clichés.
February 10, 2011
Norman Jewison's tiramisu-sweet romantic comedy is passionate and profound.

'80s romcom has mature themes; may not interest kids.

John Patrick Shanley's witty, shapely script puts an octet of New Yorkers under a lunar-tuney spell one romantic night. Cher shines brightest of all.
