    It wasn't good, it was spectacular, wonderful. You'll love the performances, but Cher's, hers was the best. The music is beautiful, and you'll laugh every moment.

  1. 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]
  2. The broad Italian family humor gets so thick at times that you could cut it with a bread knife.

    A delightful surprise... Jewison does his best work in decades. [21 Dec 1987]
