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.

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

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