I'm a sucker for a good rom-com, and Moonstruck happens to be one of my all-time favorite Cher films. While most of us know her primarily as a singer, her role as Loretta Castorini in the film transformed her acting career. A year later, Cher won the Oscar for Best Actress over Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Holly Hunter, and Sally Kirkland, solidifying her place as one of the greatest actors and pop culture icons to date. 

The movie, which is often considered an operatic multi-generational romantic comedy, also features actors Olympia Dukakis, Danny Aiello, and Nicolas Cage took home three Oscars and banked over 91 million at the box office.
