Editorial Reviews

Includes:: Chastity: Cher is impressive as a reckless rebel in the fast lane to nowhere! Written and produced by Sonny Bono and directed by Alessio de Paola, Chastity is a gritty ride through a landscape filled with love and adventure. Good Times: In their one and only movie together, singing duo Sonny and Cher star in this story about - who else? - Sonny and Cher. From Oscar-Winning director William Friedkin with a screenplay by Tony Barrett and a story by Nicholas Hyams, Good Times is fun, surreal and downright groovy. Mermaids: Cher, Winona Ryder and Christina Ricci co-star in this delightful comedy-drama about flamboyant mom and her two unique daughters. Evan as their personal styles clash, these three learn that nothing can tear apart the bonds of family. Moonstruck: With an all-star cast, including Cher in her Oscar-Winning role, this hilarious romantic comedy tells the tale of a superstitious widow (Cher) who played unexpectedly falls in love with her fianc's estranged brother (Nicholas Cage). Silkwood: A free-spirited worker at a nuclear power plant risks everything to expose the truth in this provocative drama that was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Actress (Meryl Streep) and Best Supporting Actress (Cher). Tea With Mussolini: Pre-war Florence is the place to be for proper British women who relish culture and the arts. But when World War II threatens their lifestyle, it takes a brazen American woman (Cher) to keep them in the high life and out of harm's way.

Customer Reviews

One of the greatest movies ever made.
Erick Rasmussen
Although a major movie vehicle for Meryl Streep, Cher proved she could act with the best of actresses and hold her own.

If you are a fan, this would be a great addition to your DVD library.

Just in time for the holiday season, Cher: The Film Collection is released.

This is a set of films that Cher fans, movie fans, cine-philes, and everyone in between can enjoy. Six movies featuring our girl Cher are presented beautifully in one collection for a reasonable price.

Good Times (1967) was an outrageous vehicle for Sonny and Cher. This movie was made slightly before their hugely successful TV show. Good Times is about Sonny trying to come up with an idea for a movie for the two of them to star in. It is goofy and extremely campy; what would you expect from these two. Not the greatest movie in the collection, but worth a watch on a lazy afternoon. William Friedkin (The Exorcist) makes his directorial debut.

Chastity (1969) sounds familiar? Sonny and Cher's daughter, well now son, was conceived during the making of this movie. She was named after this movie, not the movie being named after her (contrary to popular belief). Sonny wrote this for Cher because he wanted to showcase her as a serious actress. This may be Sonny's best attempt to be serious, but the goofiness of the movie is almost outweighing the seriousness. The drama that went on behind the scenes on this movie would have made for a better movie. Cher cheated on Sonny because she was furious with him over how Chastity was turning out. There is next to no plot to this movie. Cher plays Chastity, a curious girl exploring the world of sex and drugs.

Silkwood (1983) is amazing. Cher plays a supporting character, Dolly, who is Meryl Streep's roommate and best friend. Cher plays a lesbian with no flash or fance....and she does it beautifully. Never before or after has Cher looked so homely. This film is a drama in the highest degree.

I was ready to order the single dvd Silkwood for $10 plus shipping when I noticed this box set of six films which included Silkwood, for less money. The details said full frame and widescreen but didn't say which movies were full frame. I figured this would be a cheap box set but took a chance and ordered it. I'm glad I did. All six films are in widescreen and only "Chastity" and "Tea With Mussolini" are double sided discs with full frame on the reverse side. All six films look and play fine and the packaging is nice. If you love Silkwood and don't own it, this is the best way to buy it.

Not many entertainers can say they have done it all, but Cher is the exception. Singer, recording artist, gay icon, concert performer, televison personality, and movie actress. This beautiful box set shows the world Cher's varied career on the big screen with movie performances from the 1960's to the late '90's, and its really a neat time capsule into one of the most extraordinary women of our time.

This set features six of Cher's films, from major boxoffice bombs to Oscar winning films that have gone on to be loved by fans and critics alike. The first two movies are really unforgettable: "Good Times" (1967) features Sonny and Cher as themselves doing spoofs of various films. As bad as that one is "Chasity" (1969), named after their daughter, is even worse. Written and produced by Sonny it was suppose to showcase Cher's dramatic capabilites. Instead both films are pretty much forgotten and although they were terrible one can see the potential Cher had, even at this early point in her career, to become a respected and sought-after actress. It is evident: the talent was there, but the material was non-existent.

Next we have "Silkwood" (1983). Although a major movie vehicle for Meryl Streep, Cher proved she could act with the best of actresses and hold her own. She really steals the film. While watching Cher in this, you forget about the music, the Bob Mackie costumes, and the persona; instead you see a future Oscar winner toning her craft.

Of course everyone knows "Moonstruck" (1987), the movie that garnered Cher her Oscar as Best Actress where she proved to everyone, even the Hollywood naysayers, that she COULD act. Sonny Bono told her on the day of the Academy Award's ceremony that she was going to win...obviously he always knew she had the talent.

Few performers can rival the career of Cher and few can fill their case with the awards she has received including an Academy Award, a Grammy, an Emmy, and more. Not only does she hold the Hot 100 record for the longest hit making career span with 33 years between the release of her first and most recent number one singles, she also starred in her first motion picture (Good Times) in 1967 and returns to the big screen in 2010's "Burlesque".

It is the release of "Burlesque" that prompts MGM to package six of the actresses performance into "Cher: The Film Collection" which hit shelves on November 2nd 2010. Though the set does not include some of the films you may expect such as "Mask", "The Witches of Eastwick", and "Come Back to the Five and Dime Jimmie Dean Jimmie Dean", the set does provide one with the evolution of an actress. The exclusion of the above mentioned films certainly has more to do with studio politics than with their respective worthiness.

The films in the collection include six films for the true Cher fan, but only three for movie fans. Opening with "Good Times" from 1967 we are introduced to Cher, and then husband and performing partner Sonny Bono, playing themselves trying to come up with an idea for a movie in which they can star and thus capitalize on the fame currently being generated by their hit records. "Good Times" combines the camp of the beach movies of the era with the sketch comedy that Sonny and Cher would display in their hit television show. The comedy sketches on the "The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour" usually lasted about five minutes, which is how much actual good time can be found in this bomb.

Two years later Sonny would write and produce "Chastity" in an attempt to showcase Cher as a serious actress.
