Matthew Lickona noon, April 29
Some cozy sentiments about love, partly shielded behind the abrasive exterior of New York Italians, and some lovely postcards of the moon over Manhattan. Cher, with her hair pinned up and dusted with gray (at least until her big date at the Metropolitan Opera), proves she can lay on the ethnic shtick as thick as any character actor. So, all right already! She's a real actress -- realer and realer (or rather, actressier and actressier). With Nicolas Cage, Danny Aiello, Vincent Gardenia, and Olympia Dukakis; directed by Norman Jewison. 1987.
