    New York Times

    "...Cher and Nicolas Cage are both solid and appealing....[The film has] an endearing spirit..."

    Los Angeles Times

    "...A romantic comedy founded on emotional abandon and poignant truth..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Cher was at her Oscar-winning best as an Italian-American widow resigned to a sensible second marriage, who ends up falling hard for her fiance's pointedly unsensible brother." -- Grade: B+
