Movie Reviews

One of the most overlooked films!
Kevin Stafford | Warwick, RI | 09/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a true gem of a story about love and family. Richard Dreyfuss, Holly Hunter and Danny Aiello should have all been nominated for oscar's for their incredible performances in this quiet masterpeice. If you don't shed a tear and feel better about your life after watching this film. You are missing emotion. What surprises me is why this has never gotten released on DVD yet! Buy It! Rent It! Watch it! and "Fly To The Moon"!"
Rich and lusty with life

"A cast of Richard Dreyfus, Holly Hunter, Gena Rowlands & Danny Aiello would be hard to beat. Their characters are all richly expressed. Richard Dreyfus plays a wonderful role in this film and he does it with a fascinating lustiness. It is my favorite of his many excellent portrayals and one of my favorite movie characters. This film is perfect for a story of family, for romance and both can't-take-my-eyes-or-hands-off-of-you new love and matured love and for a plot that you can't forsee which carries you headlong through joy and sadness and a wealth of other emotions. There are some unique and memorable visual images.I've seen this movie a dozen times and appreciate it more each time. Like a great book, you are sorry when it ends and you have to part company."
Once Around Deserves one more time around

"What a great film. Holly Hunter and Richard Dreyfus shined in this movie. I have seen this film at least 10 times and every time I cry. What a beautiful love story."
A masterpiece in need of recognition
Ralph E. Roe Sr. | Crafton, PA USA | 06/21/2000

"Richard Dreyfuss shows a dimension not previously demonstrated. His persona as a self-absorbed success who is unaware that he hurts others, reminds me of so many people I know in real life. Ditto Holly Hunter as a Plain Jane searching for love. Danny Aiello and Gena Rowlands, once again, show us that thier talents are used to perfection. Halle Hallstrom seems incapable of making a bad movie. That this picture failed to find its audience in first run, can now be corrected thru home video. I am looking for a DVD release, but in the meantime, my VHS tape holds up after repeated viewings. As with Moonstruck, you don't have to be Italian to love this film!"
