Moonlight and Valentino

Genre: Drama, Romance; Starring: Jon Bon Jovi, Whoopi Goldberg, Elizabeth Perkins, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kathleen Turner; Director: David Anspaugh; Runtime (in minutes): 105; MPAA Rating: R

Women’s bonding films are starting to resemble McDonald’s hamburgers: billions served, every one the same. In the warmed-over specimen Moonlight and Valentino, Rebecca (Perkins) learns to grieve for, then let go of, her recently deceased husband, helped by her sister (Gwyneth Paltrow), pal (Goldberg), and stepmother (Kathleen Turner). More persuasive is Jon Bon Jovi as a cute, disheveled housepainter conveniently found on a ladder outside the bedroom window. Valentino couldn’t get moviegoers to eat out, but its familiarity should make it a popular take-home meal. Just don’t expect anything nutritious. C+
