This is not a review of the movie itself, which is great, but a comparison of the DVD and Blu-ray formats.

The DVD menu looks very dated but is easy to navigate. The film usually starts up right away when you put the the DVD in. There are only 2 Special Features: a commentary track and the film trailer. The 8-page booklet is nice. The main thing about the DVD is it plays in Standard screen format, so the image was modified to fit your old TV screen (4:3 ratio).

The Blu-ray menu look significantly better. The film also starts up on its own rather quickly if you don't make a menu choice. There are more Special Features: a commentary track and 3 featurettes (1 about the making of the movie and depicting an Italian family, 1 about Italian restaurants in New York which includes a chef cooking up a 3-item meal, 1 about the music of the film). All 3 featurettes are good. I should say that the featurette about the New York Italian restaurants is NOT listed on the back cover. There is no booklet or insert at all. The format is supposed to be widescreen (1.85:1 ratio) but it fills the screen without any black bars on the bottom and top, so it may actually be a somewhat enlarged and cropped version of the full frame presentation... I can't tell but it doesn't seem to show that much more image on the sides as the DVD did.

The Blu-ray is an improvement over the DVD in terms of audio and video, but the film really deserves an even better remastering. As with most movies, there's a degree of inconsistency in the quality of filming in terms of lighting, graininess, etc. in the original source material. Certain scenes look very good, even on the DVD, while others look very grainy and more like watching a VHS tape.

It's a film worth owning and I recommend the Blu-ray over the DVD. I picked this Blu-ray up on sale for $5.

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 ›
