    Mick LaSalle 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] show more

    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] show more

    In its warmth and in its enchantment, as well as in its laughs, this is the best comedy in a long time. show more

    Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune

    Sold as a romance, but actually is one of the funniest pictures to come out in quite some time. [15 Jan 1988] show more

    David Sterritt 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] show more

    Rick Groen 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. show more

    Simply stated, it is difficult not to be swept up by this charming picture. show more

    Sheila Benson 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] show more
