Consensus: Led by energetic performances from Nicolas Cage and Cher, Moonstruck is an exuberantly funny tribute to love and one of the decade's most appealing comedies.

You will not easily forget this incredibly robust family.

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.

Cher is simply wonderful, and the teaming with Cage an inspiration. The rest of the cast couldn't be better.

An American movie with foreign-film sensibilities, Moonstruck's depths come from their perfect balance of writing and direction.

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.

Was I the only one that thought this movie was kind of boring? Also, I think Cage sucked in this role and had a major uni-brow. But what do I know... Cher… More

I enjoyed this one more than I expected to. Cher is unquestionably the star here but it is Olympia Dukakis that, for me, really makes the whole thing work. A… More
