Critic Reviews

  1. The movie is filled with fun '50s Americana.
  2. The 1950s suit Zellweger, as does the film.

    Dying to hear George Hamilton’s origin story? No? Well, too bad, because the mediocre, nostalgic-soaked comedy-drama My One And Only, loosely inspired by Hamilton’s childhood, has been produced with a few big stars attached.
  4. Occasionally diverting but ultimately forgettable, My One and Only will become unforgivable if it inspires other former competitors from "Dancing With the Stars" to go in search of lost time.
  5. Despite the title, My One and Only is irritatingly repetitive.
  6. It is diverting but insubstantial.
  7. 50
    The movie has a jolly, half-remembered quality, as though it were adapted from a particularly rose-colored memoir.
  8. If any star’s life should lend itself to a grade-A guilty-pleasure biopic, its Hamilton’s, but My One and Only dodges the dirty details.

    I really enjoyed this film. Loved the old cars, clothes, and slice after slice of life. Zellweger was great, as the rest of the cast.I really enjoyed this film.

    If this movie were in a foreign language, critics would be praising it for its gentle humor, wonderful character roles and Renee If this movie were in a foreign language, critics would be praising it for its gentle humor, wonderful character roles and Renee Zellweger's perfect portrayal of a woman coming to realize her inner strengths. Because it is American, most will fail to realize how brilliantly each role is portrayed and how very satisfying and insightful this look at 50's Americana really is. Full Review »
