So apparently the last time I watched this movie was back in 2006 and I rated it one star. Well, I watched it yesterday and I'm watching it again today and it deserves more than one star so I'm bumping it up to three. I'm a John Mahoney fan and he was great as Perry but widely underused. I liked his brief relationship with Olympia Dukakis but I wish they had expanded it more because he definitively needed more screen time. I was disappointed because I thought he had a bigger role. That being said, I liked Cher's romance with Nicholas Cage and the movie as a whole was enjoyable.

Clever, romantic. Great music.

This movie is the epitome of what it means to be an East Coast Italian American. I've watched this movie so many times I can almost quote it by heart. Everything from the "who died?" to "I'm talking about a promise!" rings true. Cher and Nicholas Cage are a joy to behold. Although, I think my favorite line may be, "is that man praying?"

I watched this movie because it was in a list of top romantic movies. I personally don't think it should be in the list. Cher's acting was ok... I have seen worse and I have seen better. Nicolas Cage's acting was so bad it was comical.

One of my most favorite movies. I love the dynamics between members of this family, and Cher is the best!

Moonstruck is quirky and wonderful, and it has a fairy tale feel. It's definitely my favorite Nicolas Cage movie and probably my favorite Cher movie, too. Olympia Dukakis makes everything she is in better. Its writer John Patrick Shanley went on to write and direct Doubt (he wrote the play also).

One needs to be over the age of 40 before one can fully appreciate Moonstruck -- well over the age of 40. First saw the film theatrically when I was 20. I thought I was mature. I wasn't. Film sailed passed me in ways I wasn't equipped to recognize. 2 decades elapse. I catch it again, by chance, late at night, on cable at some crummy motel in suburban Denver. OMG!!!! It's a work of well observed genius -- but only if one has first LIVED.

Good movie. Cher was very good, and got the oscar for best actress. It is neat to see these old movies to see young actors before they became famous. Look for Canadian Cynthia Dale.

I thought the movie was OK. I really enjoyed the family; I thought their characters were funny and interesting. Cher did a good job, though I am not sure it was 'Oscar' winning worthy.
