I would love to rate this 5 stars but I'm an equal opportunity Cher fan. To begin with as other reviewers have remarked, this film - originally produced off Broadway by Palmienteri (who at the time was hot from "The Usual Suspects") does not translate as well to the screen. The wordy script, however, gives Cher some great lines and she really carries the film. It is a very interestingly written screenplay (it varies drastically from the original show) and once again there were rumours of trouble on the set between Cher and Mazursky, the director. The ending and last shot is so obviously stapled on - something Cher was so angry about you can actually see her seething in the scene while she is in the car. And she has good reason - the film reaches a crescendo and then BOOM just falls flat. Cher's performance is wonderful and emotive; unfortunately her recently "touched up lips" shall I say - are hard to ignore in many scenes. (I don't know what she did, however I rode up in an elevator with her back in February and she looked amazing). Ryan O'Neal, as well, is bloated - so there is a desperation of the aging Hollywood actor feel about the film. However, in an odd sense that all actually works very well with the theme of "out with the old" that is O'Neal's character's motivation and Cher's character's desperation as well. A very enjoyable and underrated film.

Unlike the other reviewers, this under rated and overlooked film put Cher in fine form. She adequately went through the paces of a depressed and suicidal wife to an assertive and in-control woman by the films end.
Anyone who has ever been in a long term relationship will find that their thoughts have been placed in full view on the screen.This was superbly written and acted by Chaz Palmitari who enhanced Cher's performance.
It seemed odd to cast Ryan O'Neal as the slimy husband, but he did manage to pull it off with the accurate yuppie whining headset that the role demanded.
If your heart has been broken or is currently in the throes of a disintegrating relationship, this film is a MUST see! Many introspective ideas will come to the forefront that you may not have considered before.
Rent it if you must, but it is certainly one of those films worthy of a purchase as well as repeat viewings.

"Faithful" is something between a thriller and a comedy, although not quite. Its script, due to the long dialogues and less action, would work better on the stage as on the screen. Nevertheless the performances are really charming. Cher, as usual, does the best out of her character, and Chazz Palminteri is just born for the gangster role. And although there's something freaky in this film, it is really very enjoyable.

Not an Oscar movie, but I enjoyed it. I'm a huge Cher fan, and she did a great job, allthough the script was pretty weak. If you want a real quality Cher movie, I suggest Moonstruck oor Tea with Mussolini. If you just want something entertaining, this movie's alot of fun!

Faithful was a great story. The communication between Cher and the hitman sent to kill her was amusing. The fact that the hitman has an analyst who knows what he does for a living was good. It has a great ending.

...it doesn't quite work, but it's okay right? All the tools are presented to put together a pretty good movie. Paper flat direction by Paul Mazursky is the real let down with this play turned film. No sweat!! Cher and Chazz Palminteri hold things together. Palminteri's script makes many good points, but some how shoots for a degree of shock value that makes for some dialogue that can be a little more hardcore than one might of expected. Thats cool though I haven't heard Cher talk like that since "The Witches of Eastwick" (1987). Some traditional married folk may find themselves offended. This movie was often halarious and insane in it's honesty. Bottomline..for those that love Cher and expect the magic of "Moonstruck", "Mermaids", "Mask", or "Tea with Mussolini". You won't find it with "Faithful".
