As seems fitting for a movie about Italian-Americans, much of Moonstruck takes place while characters are eating, and eating well. There’s a memorable breakfast early in the film—Olympia Dukakis cooks for daughter Cher a meal of an egg fried atop a slice of bread with a yolk-sized hole cut out, topped with roasted red pepper strips—during which Cher announces her engagement to milquetoast Danny Aiello. The movie ends with an even bigger breakfast scene—served up with a simple oatmeal—in which Cher announces to her family that she’s thrown her fiancé over for his hot-tempered, bread-baking brother (Nicolas Cage). During the same meal, Dukakis confronts husband Vincent Gardenia over his infidelity. Everyone has it out, resolves their issues, affirms the primacy of family and marital love, and lives happily ever after—not to mention sated with stick-to-your-ribs comfort food.
