NEW YORK–“Round Numbers” is a feminist sitcom that makes its points clearly about women’s problems with self-image but isn’t funny enough. It’s a video time-killer.

Kate Mulgrew, somewhat miscast in that she has to keep protesting how overweight she is (she isn’t) to fit the role, plays a neglected wife who’s jealous of muffler shop tycoon hubbie Marty Ingels’ lovely spokesmodel on his TV commercials, shapely Hope Marie Carlton.

Mulgrew checks into a health spa to become more competitive and bonds their with other friendly types including the very tall Debra Christofferson, inferiority-complex-ridden Natalie Barish and a woman (Samantha Eggar) dominated by her husband.

Script by helmer Nancy Zala is sympathetic to the women’s plight while taking rather tame potshots at the national mania in pursuit of physical perfection. There’s some good repartee but the satire remains skin-deep. Ensemble cast is good, with former Playboy magazine model Carlton even getting to show her stuff in a topless fantasy scene (from jealous Mulgrew’s point-of-view) in a sauna.
