Genre was misleading.

I watched it for the first time tonight (11/3/2019). I had actually never heard about this movie before tonight. I only chose it because I was in the mood for what I thought would be a great movie based on the cast. This was definitely not a comedy and the ending was absolutely absurd! The story line made some sense, but a tad boring in most areas. I kept watching and waiting for something funny or a little more interesting, but was disappointed. I think the only thing that held my attention was the fact that I love all these actresses. It should have been listed as a drama. I know I will never waste my time watching it in the future and I definitely won't suggest anyone I know watch it either.

So, this movie was scripted in the mid 90's. it is now 2019 and all I can say is WOW! We need more movies like this today. sisterly love, kindness, compassion, bonding, and the ultimate healing! It was cast perfectly and for it to get only 3/12 stars shows the downfall of our spirit as a nation. I am glad that Amazon put this out there. I almost didn't watch it because of the ratings. I'm glad I did and would like to won it if I can afford it. I am thankful for these actresses for putting their souls into this movie and for the wonder script that keeps me pondering about sisterhood. Please give this movie a chance to awaken your spirit as it did for me.

THERE IS NOTHING FALL-DOWN FUNNY IN THIS FILM, AND THE 4 WOMEN MAIN CHARACTERS HAVE HAD NO FALLING OUT WITH EACH OTHER THAT NEEDS TO BE RESOLVED. Once again someone has paid someone to write a synopsis for a film that they didn't watch EVER.
Great casting, good story, maybe women resolving issues within them selves, plus, love, friendship and life.
The title doesn't really have anything much to do with this story.

Description very misleading

Description states "Fall down funny", seriously??? I watched most of it because I thought it may have a good cast. Very drool, lacks substance movie. Not sure where the fall down funny parts were. A yawner for sure

Moonlight & Valentino

For ages I have looked & looked for this movie, Moonlight & Valentino! When I saw it was on Amazon Prime, I gasped & immediately added it to my Watch List! GREAT movie! In the early eighties, when I watched it for the very first time, it captivated me from beginning to end. Real life & real human emotions add to instead of distract from this well-done, beautiful story. And emotions do run the gamut of love, joy, regret, sorrow, and excitement... I've enjoyed Moonlight & Valentino several times over the past few years; then frantically tried to find it without success; now the search is over! And I am thrilled! Thank you, Amazon Prime!

A somewhat drool story
Verified purchase
I have seen this movie a few times. It is the story of a recent widow, her younger sister, her best friend and step-mom. As she navigates through loss information is shared, people interact and there are more than a few inappropriate scenes. The director seems to have a fascination with female naked bodies. Shem on him or her for writing that into the script as part of the storyline, as if it was needed as well as a few Jesus Christs and God...m"s that were not necessary. Why? Do they hate God and Jesus that much? Why not just say shi. or damn or MF? Why curse at all? I myself will jump for joy when screenwriters finally learn how to communicate anger, disappointment and grief in a better way? There are some really funny and very sweet moments in this movie though. Elizabeth McGovern is a fine Actress. Whoopie is always a pleasure. Peter Coyote has a small role and John Bon Jovi signed on as eye candy. Jeremy Sisto has a silly, creepy yet endearing part. Overall I take away a star for language and one for unnecessary nudeness. 3
stars for the laugh out moment I had as well as the dog and the yellow house makeover and Kathleen Turners character. Watch and see for yourself. :)

Better than the "professional" reviewers would lead you to believe
Verified purchase
Fortunately, I read the reviews afterward. The pace is slow, but interactions are true to life. I was interested in these women and wanted to see how their lives progressed. The reviewers quoted in Wikipedia are all male and found it contrived and overwrought. Movies can entertain you in different ways, action filled, romantic, comedic, etc. At the end of this movie, I felt comforted, like I'd helped friends weather some difficult times. Not sure if I'll watch it again, but I would have been happy to enjoy these women for another half hour of runtime. -----chaos504

A good movie about grief.
Verified purchase
If you've suffered a loss of a child there is wisdom here. You feel disjointed, incomplete, wanting just one last hug. You are definately walking an unfamiliar road, one you would never ever chose. Elizabeth Perkins did a good job. Her grief was too strong to cry at first. I got that. She had faithful friends and loving sister. It was a little disjointed but all the actresses did a good job. If you take anything away from this movie it's to be gentle to a grieving person. I think it's well worth watching. I saw it many years ago so it seemed new to me especially after losing my eldest son. It is very very hard to say goodbye but those last lines by Elizabeth Perkins have a loving sincerity about them. I loved him
I adored him. I had to say goodbye for now until I meet up with him in heaven. He is waiting and he is young and beautiful and happy. So if your grieving this is a good very good movie.
