Editorial Reviews

Oscar-Winner Renée Zellweger shines as a Southern belle turned New York socialite who leaves her philandering husband and heads out on the road with her two teenage sons to find a new man. Based on the true-life childhood experiences of actor George Hamilton, this hilarious, heart-warming film features an all-star cast including Kevin Bacon (Mystic River), Chris Noth (TV's Sex And The City), Eric McCormack (TV's Will & Grace), and Steve Weber (TV's Wings). When Anne Deveraux (Zellweger) finds her bandleader husband Dan (Bacon) in bed with another woman, she packs her bags, empties the cash drawer, buys a baby blue Cadillac convertible and begins a cross-country trek with her sons. From Boston to Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Albuquerque and finally Hollywood, her search for a new life continues to turn up short. But the richness of coming to really know her sons - Robbie, who dreams of a life on stage, and George, a cynical, would-be writer who hopes this journey will lead back home (and soon!) - makes their harrowing adventure on America's highways among the most worthwhile undertakings of their lives.

I had "My One and Only" on a list of recent movies I had missed and after viewing it, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this charming, slightly over-the-top film. Renée Zellweger plays the often beaten down but nonetheless driven mother of two teenage boys, whose own separation from her husband has her, quite literally, driven to leave him. And drive she and the boys do! From Boston to California, it's one missed opportunity after another as Zellweger runs into a cast of losing suitors...several played by actors of note.

The pace is decidedly slow, but that makes "My One and Only" all the better. While Zellweger is the glue that holds the family (and the movie) together, a wonderful performance is turned in by Logan Lerman, who plays the older son George. George serves as narrator and his emotional expressiveness is just right for the part. I highly recommend "My One and Only" and I wouldn't be surprised if the viewer might want to see it for a second time.

Once again I was ordering this on the premise similar to what you see on the cover: "funny", "cheerful comedy" and the cover showing everyone smiling. There were several lines that were laugh-out-loud funny, but this was more of a drama about an angered wife traveling cross country with her two teen boys to hop from sugar daddy to sugar daddy.

The performances were adequate, with even Chris Noth having a brief part as a one of the lunatics she briefly picks to marry. David Koechner plays a great little role as another one of the crazies she tried to marry. Renee plays her role quite well, but it is hard to feel for her as she leap frogs from man to man, uprooting the boys each time as they travel to California from New York. Logan Lerman (who I first remember from Meet Bill) succinctly plays one of her boys, that if you do not read the art or remember the spoiler ads - gives a nice twist at the end of who he becomes.

The picture quality is fine, but it could definitely use a Blu treatment. The sound is 5.1, but the strength of making this 3.5 star film a 5 is the two documentaries. Both last just over 30 minutes each and have a plethora of great material about the making of and creation process. Some of the best moments though are how candid everyone is (especially the writer - Peters) with how broken the Hollywood film making/writing process is. I was laughing harder here than in the film at how sadly honest they were in what it takes to sell a film in Southern California now - worth the watch on their own.

Overall, not a solid piece for fans of the supporting cast (Bacon, Noth, Koechner, Stahl) as each only have short appearances. The film hinges on Renee who graces the screen in the way she is known for, and the "twist" of discovering who her kid becomes - but the emotions feel a little shallow. Hope you enjoy.

This movie is so underated. We went to see it because it was the only adult movie playing last year in September.

The movie plays out like movies of the 1940's and 50'... just so entertaining. It kinda reminds me of Neil Simon plays.

Sad that only action flicks and kids animated movies are the movies that we are inundated with today. I just absolutely loved it !!! I am watching it the second time and I enjoyed just as much as the first time, maybe more.
Just a word of caution, If you are not 60 plus you want understand this movie or probably enjoy it. It is like movies were when movies were really movies

Back in the 1960's Rene character would have been cast as Vivien Leigh, Jean Simmons, Janet Leigh, and other stars of that era that could have played a lady who life had dealt a blow from which you just don't recover, you just endure.

Kevin Bacon plays Dan Devereaux a NY band leader who has cheated on his wife Anne (Renée Zellweger) one too many times. Dan's claim to fame is that he wrote the hit song, "My One and Only." A song he ironically wrote for Anne.

Anne packs up her sons and leaves. Robbie (Mark Rendall) the older son by a different father is stereotypically gay. George (Logan Lerman) is 15 and is mature for his age. He becomes our voice of reason, outsmarting his mom's suitors who are not desirable when she can't see their flaws. Anne is old fashion southern. She is attempting to adapt to the societal changes in post WWII America. Ladies, do not drive. Robbie doesn't have the personality to drive, so unlicensed George is the family chauffeur. Anne instructs her son to look forward and never use the rear view mirror. She is that optimistic. The opening scenes are quick at revealing character.

Anne has trouble surviving in the real world, having never lived without being dependent on a man. The film is an enjoyable light comedy and light adventure. For those who like the quirkiness of an indie, and the star acting of a first run feature, this one has it all. Recommended viewing.

I was just looking for a Sunday afternoon chick flick but was pleasantly surprised that this movie actually has a good storyline. This is not, in my opinion, a chick flick at all. Based on a true story told by George Hamilton from memories of his childhood. The whole cast was excellent and I recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good life story movie.
