1987, Park Circus, 102 min, USA, Dir: Norman Jewison

Bring me the big knife!” This wonderfully lunatic comic gem from director Norman Jewison and screenwriter John Patrick Shanley stars Cher as Loretta Castorini, a sexy, smart-mouthed widow who’s resigned herself to an upcoming marriage to terminally indecisive Johnny Cammareri (Danny Aiello) - until Johnny’s wildly passionate, one-handed brother Ronny (Nicolas Cage) professes his undying love for her. Academy Award winner for Best Actress (Cher), Supporting Actress (Olympia Dukakis) and Screenplay (Shanley).
