14 November 1998 | jmac 78
great movie to start the nineties off.
Cher may not be a true actress, but she plays a hard part with ease. with 2 daughters, (winona ryder & christina ricci), she does a great job of raising them. for some, this is where both ricci & ryder may have gotten their breaks and who better to star with than cher.A 8.5 on my scale, very authentic and direct to the audience.
