Henry Winkler shines in this charming, romantic comedy about an actor who finally makes it big - in the world of professional wrestling. Winkler plays Andy Schmidt, an actor who despite his formal training finds himself unemployed after graduation. His brash demeanor may have cost him an audition or two, but it's perfectly suited to the world of professional wrestling. Soon enough, Andy will have to learn to balance the world of Pro Wrestling stardom with his marriage to Mary (Kim Darby) who loves Andy despite the larger than life world he inhabits. With a screenplay by Steve Gordon (Arthur) and directed by Carl Reiner, The One and Only is the rare kind of romantic comedy that can tug on your heart, but also make you stand up and cheer.

As an adult, I was impressed. The cinematography is that of a movie from the 70's, and my wife complained about the sound not being up to par, but aside from the graininess of the picture, the story carried me away.
The writing in brilliant,. and while Henry Winkler's performance is a bit over the top in several parts, but that's intentional I assume. The storyline starts out a bit slow in the beginning, but I appreciated the well-crafted and perfectly delivered lines.
The PG rating was given before the MPAA changed their rating system, so I wouldn't be showing it to my small kids, but it's a gret love story, and if you're any fan of Henry Winkler you'll love it.
Having grown up as a fan of professional wrestling, I found this comedic parody refreshing and funny. Well acted by all of the principles with exceptional performances by Hervé Villechaize and Kim Darby who brings out the best in Winklers character.
Not a movie to be dissected only enjoyed.......And have in your collection to watch when the world gets too serious.
