This rather overbearing romantic comedy is by no means a disaster.

Ethnic romances from Abie's Irish Rose to Moonstruck have traveled similar ground, but few have handled the role of family in a marriage more poignantly than Once Around.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

On the whole Once Around is strangely enervating, proof that family problems -- even those of fictional families -- are often best kept behind closed doors.

There is no there there, just the dead red glow of the beckoning Exit light.
