The story of your typical Italian American family living in New York. Loretta ({{Cher}}), a widow in her late thirties who has moved back in with her parents since the death of her husband, accepts a proposal from her bumbling boyfriend Johnny (Danny Aiello), who suddenly has to leave in order to visit his dying mother in Sicily. While he's away, Loretta tries to convince Johnny's estranged brother Ronny (NicolasCage) to give up their feud and come to the upcoming wedding, but accidentally falls for him. At the same time, Loretta's father (Vincent Gardenia) is having a secret affair while her mother (Olympia Dukakis) ponders the skirt-chasing mentality of men. HilarityEnsues.

* AnimalMotif: Ronny resembles a wolf before he cleans up for the opera, which makes sense since Loretta calls him a wolf and the original title of the film was ''The Bride and the Wolf''.

* DamnedByFaintPraise: When Al tells Loretta that he's a genius, she retorts that if he's such a genius, why are his receipts and taxes a complete ad utter mess? She eventually admits he makes good coffee.

Notable for getting Cher, Dukakis and screenwriter John Patrick Shanley UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s. Notable further for the fact that the acting awards, for a spot-on depiction of a big Italian family, went to the ''non''-Italian actors. Italian Vincent Gardenia did get nominated, but didn't win.
