Somewhat different storyline than Moonstruck, but what both films have incommon is that they depict a stereotypical immigrant Italian family in New York at that time. I really enjoyed the movie, thought i had seen most of Natallie Wood's movies or at least heard of them. This one was a real ...Read more

As I am an Italian who immigrated to Canada in the 60s, I can certainly relate to Angie's Italian family. I'm going to give Natalie Wood my highest praise; she is a young Italian woman. I love this movie, and watch it as often as I can. Keep those bells ringing!!

Very life-like portrayal of 1960's Italian New York City, with all of the stereotypical ethnicity associated with the period (domineering brothers and the highly emotional matronly mother).

My favorite part in this movie (in addition to Natalie Wood) is the line when McQueen and his blonde bimbo girl-friend are hanging out in their apt. and she says "Are we in love?" and he says "Yeah, you with yourself and me with myself".

I saw this movie first when i was very young; it made a huge impression on me ever after, I have always thought the image of ideal feminine beauty is that of Natalie Wood. I recall best a scene in which she is getting ready for her date w/ Steve McQueen, and she looks absolutely perfect, but ...Read more

Tender, honest movie. Takes a brave look at a very ugly reality. No heroes, no villains. But very human, and even a little funny. A great flick with solid, believable writing.

Predictable? Are you kidding? A Hollywood love story predictable?
