  1. Strange that I've never seen this movie. Must be because our children were young and we'd have required a babysitter. That, and I'm not sure my husband would have wanted to. Maybe I'll check out Netflixs later today.

  3. I ADORE this movie! Have watched it numerous times and it doesn't ever lose it's punch. My husband loves it as much as I do. Can't beat the chemistry between Nicholas Cage and Cher! I also loved Olympia Dukakis, the film wouldn't be the same without her... Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my blog... #atozchallenge2014

  4. Cher and Olympia Dukakis. This is one of my all-time favorites! I never tire of it. But I had no idea it was an adaptation.

    1. Right on both, Julie. It's really not adapted from a book, but great writers!

  16. I'm happy. I've heard of this movie. I don't think I ever saw it though. Back when Cher wore clothes, right?

  17. I've only seen this movie once, though it was one of my mom's favorites. I was probably eleven or twelve when I saw it and it didn't stick with me. I might have to find it again and see it from an adult perspective instead of a bored preteen's perspective.
