Chris Nashawaty - Entertainment Weekly
The title refers to one relative's theory that the full moon can make people wildly romantic, make them behave in wonderful, unpredictably crazy ways. Not crazy enough.
Janet Maslin - New York Times
They're an irresistibly offbeat couple -- Cage playing on the edge, where he likes it; Cher creating a fairy-tale realist, captivating yet cautious.
Rita Kempley - Washington Post
Reviews of the movie tend to make it sound like a madcap ethnic comedy, and that it is. But there is something more here, a certain bittersweet yearning that comes across as ineffably romantic, and a certain magical quality.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
Most of the show belongs to Cher and Cage, both of whom are at their energetic best.
Jonathan Rosenbaum - Chicago Reader
Norman Jewison's film is a mostly appetizing blend of comedy and drama carried by snappy dialog and a wonderful ensemble full of familiar faces.
Variety Staff - Variety
John Patrick Shanley's witty, shapely script puts an octet of New Yorkers under a lunar-tuney spell one romantic night. Cher shines brightest of all.
- TIME Magazine
Wears its off-balance as a badge of pride. [Blu-ray]
Peter Canavese - Groucho Reviews
A superior romantic comedy, with more than a touch of grace and warmth, and without resorting to the usual stupid romantic comedy cliches.
Jeffrey M. Anderson - Combustible Celluloid
'80s romcom has mature themes; may not interest kids.
S. Jhoanna Robledo - Common Sense Media
A shamelessly exuberant affair in which love touches the young, the hurt and the middle-aged.
A wholesome, filling glimpse at what happens when people rediscover their appetite for love.
Angie Errigo - Empire Magazine
Cher and Cage are very fine in this romantic comedy directed by Norman Jewison.
Steve Crum - Video-Reviewmaster.com
A rich and witty romantic comedy with a perfecto monologue from Nicolas Cage.
Cole Smithey - ColeSmithey.com
Stronger on mores than amore, a half smile for a summer night.
- Time Out
...generally unable to live up to its reputation as a classic romantic comedy.
David Nusair - Reel Film Reviews
A warm and funny little ensemble piece that still holds up pretty darn well after almost 20 years.
Scott Weinberg - DVD Clinic
spends so much time reminding us what a quaint and cute little movie we're watching that our interest isn't required

Elegantly designed and acted with verve, even though the story and concept are frustratingly minor.

Simply stated, it is difficult not to be swept up by this charming picture.

Walter Chaw - Film Freak Central
Explores the different shades of love in humanistic and hilarious ways
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat - Spirituality and Practice
Okay romantic comedy, but I never got what the fuss was about.
Ken Hanke - Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
The Haley's Comet of Romantic Comedies - sparkling gems like this don't come along very often. One large supreme with extra spice.
Clint Morris - Mediasharx
This Oscar-winning comedy could be described as an Italian Woody Allen film, only less neurotic and more warm-hearted.
Kevin N. Laforest - Montreal Film Journal
"brilliant writing, magnificent performances"
James Sanford - Kalamazoo Gazette
Philip Martin - Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
Este filme (assim como a Lua) enfeitica.
Pablo Villaca - Cinema em Cena
...perfectly beautiful, thoughtful, poignant, funny, and fun. Like the full moon, it is enchanting to look at time and again.
