Cher stars as Loretta Castorini, a superstitious accountant from Brooklyn, who finds herself falling in love with the brother of her betrothed in this contemporary romantic comedy set amongst the Italian-American community of New York City.
A huge hit at the time of its release, it's become a rather forgotten film since, despite winning Oscars for both Cher & Olympia Dukakis, as well as for the original screenplay by John Patrick Shanley. It is incredibly wittily written and the performance from the entire ensemble cast is excellent. It probably won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it's certainly worth a watch.
