Cher is devastatingly funny, sinuous and beautiful as Loretta, an unlucky-in-love Italian widow who finds romance through the intervention of the Manhattan moon. With her wedding to a close friend just weeks away, she meets - and falls hopelessly in love with - his younger brother (Nicolas Cage)! Her dilemma - and her equally passionate and hilariously eccentric family - make for an unforgettable film you'll find beguiling, enchanting and irresistible.
This is a light hearted feel good romantic comedy. It is sort of an Italian American fairy story. Cher is absolutely gorgeous and is a very good actress. It seemed as if all of the actors had fun with their roles.Nicolas Cage I think has only had too good parts - his brilliant performance in Leaving Las Vegas and here as wild younger brother. Woman accepts marriage proposal from her nice safe boyfriend. They are more friends than lovers. She meets boyfriend’s younger brother, has fling, goes to opera for first time, falls madly in love and all ends well. Happily ever after for the whole extended family.
