Los Angeles Times
Such nourishing comedy. It satisfies every hunger, especially the irrational ones that seem to hit hardest at holidays: hunger for impetuous romance and for the reassuring warmth of family, for reckless abandon, and for knowing who we are and what we want. [16 Dec 1987]
Chicago Sun-Times
In its warmth and in its enchantment, as well as in its laughs, this is the best comedy in a long time.
Chicago Tribune
Sold as a romance, but actually is one of the funniest pictures to come out in quite some time. [15 Jan 1988]
The most beguiling romantic comedy this side of "Broadcast News." [11 Jan 1988]
Christian Science Monitor
Most of the acting is as real and warm as the characters themselves. And the streets, shops, and living rooms of Brooklyn have never seemed more inviting. [29 Jan 1988]
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
From the first stylized shot to the final comic resolution, Moonstruck is completely sui generis - hard to describe but easy to love.
Simply stated, it is difficult not to be swept up by this charming picture.
USA Today
I enjoyed everything about Moonstruck except for its meandering mid-section. On cassette, with vino accompaniment, it may seem perfect. In theaters, with a diet drink, it still rates as the holiday sleeper. [18 Dec 1987]
Wall Street Journal
[(Cher's) never been better. [5 Jan 1988, p.22(E)]
San Francisco Chronicle
A corny, overblown romance, and while it eventually wins you over with its atmosphere and good nature, it's far from the masterpiece you've been hearing about. [15 Jan 1988]
