Cher stars in this marvelous romance-comedy about a middle-aged woman who falls in love with her boyfriends pathetic cousin, Nicholas Cage. The wonderfully deranged plot is heavily supported by spirited and crazily phenomenal performances by the entire cast. Excellent scenery and great Italian-like background music. Cher won a best actress Oscar in this role, and Olympia Dukakis won the best supporting actress role. Recommended to everyone! It's a remarkable off-beat venture.
