This movie is on my list of all-time favorites so I was delighted when my son recently bought it for me on DVD. It is the humorous and delightful love story of Loretta Castorini, a young Italian widow who lives with her parents in Brooklyn, and Ronnie Camarerie, owner of Camarerie Brothers Bakery and by chance the brother of Loretta's fiancee. How these two individuals come together and the interplay between them and all the members of Loretta's large and often interfering Italian family makes for many hilarious moments.
This movie is especially heartwarming as it depicts an Italian-American family better than any movie I have ever seen. I am a member of a large Italian family and I can vouch for its authenticity! The Castorini home even reminded me of many of those of my Italian relatives, filled with much good food and good conversation as well as memories of love and family. This is truly a wonderful movie experience!
This DVD version features an option to watch the movie while listening to a voice over by director Norman Jewison, writer John Patrick Shanley and lead actress Cher. I thoroughly enjoyed this feature, as each added amusing anecdotes about the filming of the movie, as well as their own input about various scenes and information about the other actors.

Many of my fellow reviewers here at Amazon are very concerned with the format with which the DVD was released. They must have been very concerned about how this formatting choice impacted the story as it unfolded.
My focus was on the acting and the characters and how they filled the story.... and fill the story they each most certainly did.
Each actor's portrayal could be a study in itself, from the starring roles to the minor, one scene cameos and supporting players: each is rich in expression and integral to the story.
I especially enjoyed how colorfully the "background" characters weaved their way into one another's lives -- it made me, as an audience member, also feel richly woven in with the rest of them.
Nicholas Cage and Cher are an invigorating pairing (hooray for an older woman younger man for a change!) who match one another, soulful eye for soulful eye.
Add the "Bella Luna" and the music and New York (how I miss it!) and viola! A delightful treat to fill any two hour time period in your day.

There are a very few films that create their own special, magical world--creating a heightened, poetic sense of whimsical reality--and sustain belief in that world from beginnng to end. Norman Jewison's Moonstruck, based on the superb screenplay of John Patrick Shanley, is one of those films. Everything about this movie--from the casting to the dialogue to the mesmerizing imagery of La Bella Luna--is exactly, perfectly right, and persuades you that to be an Italian in New York is the most wonderful thing in the world. It's heartbreaking to see Cher in her current incarnation as a worldwide freak show, after her great (and deservedly Oscar-winning) performance in this film. But she also deserves credit for insisting on Nicolas Cage as her leading man in Moonstruck, at a time when Cage seemed like something of a freak show himself. Cher deserves our thanks, for Cage and Ronny Cammareri were a perfect marriage of actor and role. He and Cher have chemistry by the truckload, and it is impossible to imagine any other actors in the roles of Loretta and Ronny. There is also the perfect casting of Olympia Dukakis, who looks absolutely like Cher's mom and has what may be the best comic entrance line in the history of the movies ("Who's dead?"). Vincent Gardenia, John Mahoney, Danny Aiello, Feodor Chaliapin, Louis Guss, Julie Bovasso, Anita Gillette--the litany of exquisite comic performances in "Moonstruck" goes on and on. Seeing this movie again after a long time, it's a bit of a shock to see how death-obsessed the film is--from the answer to Dukakis' question about why men chase women ("I think it's because they fear death") to the incidental but deliberately placed appearance of a bus (Loretta's first husband was killed by one).Read more ›

Okay I admit it. I'm a chick. That doesn't mean I have to like chick flicks. I worked as a store manager of a video store for 5 years. I got up to 21 movies a week to preview for free. It was VERY rare I took advantage of this with a "chick flick."
Maybe it's the Italian in me. Maybe it's the fact I'm such a Nicolas Cage fan. Maybe it's that family means the world to me. Or maybe..I'm just a sucker for fairy-tales.
"Moonstruck" tells the tale of Loretta Castorini, a 30-something widow who is too practical for her own good. She has a cynical additude about love, and is very superstitious. She lives with her parents and grandfather (and his seven-or-so dogs). She has been seeing a man, who she likes, but not is in love with. When he proposes, she accepts. Before he goes on a business trip, he asks her to go to his brother and invite him to the wedding. She does, and the real story begins.
As for the DVD, I'm honestly waiting for a special edition to come out before I buy it. My VHS copy is worn from so many views, but if I can get some deleted scenes and the like out of it, I'll be happy.
Also, I'm an 80's child. I love 80's movies, pop culture and music. The sountrack from this movie is anything but. However, it is definitely worth purchasing~whether you're Italian by heritage or a romantic by nature.
