  • Summary: A self-absorbed woman leaves her philandering band-leader husband and takes her two teen-aged sons across the country, searching for a new husband who's worthy-and capable-of supporting her and her family. In their sometimes comedic, sometimes poignant cross-country adventure, they find new levels of self-reliance as they pull together as a family and overcome the unexpected pitfalls of the road.

  1. A completely appealing, beautifully preserved memory piece - a grand, colorful coming-of-age story with a candy box color palette and a standout performance by Renée Zellweger. It's a great story and a great crowd-pleaser.
  2. Peter's lightning-fast script and Loncraine's steady direction steer this road picture to the sunny side of the street.

    Sweet, modest and quietly classy, it's the perfect late-summer entertainment -- and it also happens to feature the most relaxed and nuanced performance Renée Zellweger has given in years.

    My One and Only has an old-fashioned sensibility -- and some lovely Mad Men-style costumes -- making for a pleasantly diverting road movie.
  5. The movie is filled with fun '50s Americana.

    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.
  7. 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. Interesting producer! Expand
