Moonstruck director Norman Jewison successfully mines the same territory with this delicious "Cinderella Italian-style" romantic comedy. Following the prophecy of a childhood Ouija game, Pittsburgh schoolteacher Marisa Tomei runs out on her wedding and goes to Rome to find the man of her dreams. There she meets shoe salesman Robert Downey Jr, who may or may not fit the bill. The pairing of Tomei and Downey Jr works like a charm: both inject scintillating substance into an unashamedly lightweight affair through their winning chemistry. Billy Zane is also on hand to provide a neat twist in the tale, and the lush Italian scenery will have you changing your holiday plans to head for the idyllic town of Positano on the beautiful Amalfi coast.

Plot Summary

Romantic comedy starring Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. Just before her wedding to Dwayne, Faith Corvatch receives a phone call from his friend Damon Bradley, whose name was predicted by both a Ouija board and a fortune-teller to be that of her future soul mate. She is desperate to meet Bradley, and follows him to Italy.
