11. Moonstruck (1987)

The best rom-coms of all time 16

Cher may have stolen the majority of the headlines for her Academy Award winning performance in the lead role, but Moonstruck is far from just a one-woman show, with the rom-com also nabbing trophies for Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Screenplay.

Cher’s widow accepts a marriage proposal, only to end up falling for her man’s younger brother instead, played by a fresh-faced but still charismatically eccentric Nicolas Cage.

That’s far from the only familial issue that Moonstruck deals with, and it manages to hark back to the glory days of screwball while still succeeding on its own merits as a biting relationship drama.
