Moonstruck is a delightful romantic comedy about Loretta, a young Italian widow who decides to re-marry, only to fall in love with her fiance’s estranged brother. This lighthearted story with a strong ensemble cast has a whimsical look and feel that is full of impulsive characters and multiple interwoven dilemmas. Cher’s performance as Loretta is particularly engaging, and surprisingly passionate for a comedy with this many laughs (Klaus Ming May 2016).
