I had no clue what I was getting myself into, but when I noticed Cher and Cage in the opening credits I got strangely excited. Turns out I'd fooled myself immensely, this is by far one of the most irritating romcoms I've seen in a long time. If Jewison wanted this to be an exercise in being grating, he absolutely nailed it.

Read all

Loretta is marrying Johnny, though it's clear her heart isn't really in it. Johnny is staying with his dying mom and asks Loretta to visit his brother Ronny to clear the bad blood between them. Loretta obliges, but after spending a little time with Ronny, they've fallen madly in love with each other. A tricky situation.

How schmaltzy drama and a cast of irritating Italian-American stereotypes are to combine into a fun romcom is beyond me, but that's what Jewison attempted here. The performances are terrible, the drama is overdone, and the soundtrack is simply grotesque. Either this is the thickest pastiche I've ever laid eyes on, or it's just plain crap. I'm betting on the latter.
