Moonstruck (1987)

 There’s some very mild language in this. Basically, it’s a family show this time.


The 47th edition of the Next 100 Project finds us heart-deep in a zany love story. This one’s got loads of one-liners with its combative characters who fight, fight, love…and sometimes even make sense. Cher and Olympia Dukakis are the main event here, but we pay tribute to the oddballity known as Nicolas Cage as well. We didn’t agree on this one, although our spirited debate does fit Moonstruck’s tone. Shoot over to Sparkplug Coffee, then spark up Bev’s #1 beloved rom-com!
