The Movie I Watched Last Night VII
Nicolas Cage plays an angry baker with a wooden hand. Cher plays an aging, romantically desperate woman about to make the wrong marriage decision. Her character's parents face similar challenges: Dad's dating a floozy on the side, and mom makes the right call when she has a restaurant liaison with Frasier Crane's dad. Meanwhile, crazy grandpa devotes himself to their pet dogs and the full moon. ("If you give that food to those dogs, I'm going to kick you until you're dead!") True love, the opera, and some missing money from the corner store all conspire to create the happiest of happy endings. Nic and Cher hook up, her former beau is left in the lurch, and mom and dad are back together, forever. So much for affairs, dying mothers, and petty thievery! Features a nice "Pretty Woman"-like scene in which Cher gets gussied up for her night at l'opera. She's gonna wash that man right out of her hair.
