Moonstruck

The Daughter came home from work Thursday night deathly ill. She was barely in recovery mode yesterday afternoon, and I thought a mindless comedy might be suitable. She slept through the movie (so "recovery" was an optimistic opinion), but The Husband and I got a kick out of it.

Moonstruck is a 1987 romantic comedy starring Cher, Nicholas Cage, Olympia Dukakis, Danny Aiello and Vincent Gardenia. It's directed by Norman Jewison.

It's won all kinds of awards and is on lots of "best" lists. Roger Ebert loves it. EW praises the performances. DVD Talk calls it an "unabashed romantic flight of fancy".
