      Wesley Morris Boston Globe Rated: 2/4 Nov 24, 2011 Full Review Tom Long Detroit News Part road trip, part coming-of-age story, the film ultimately reveals itself as a Hollywood memoir, but it saves any stardust for its last moments. Rated: B Sep 4, 2009 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com It has a smoothly intoxicating style and never overplays its hand. Better, it doesn't drip in maudlin melodrama, its emotional undercurrents happening with an almost effortless believability that's tastily refreshing. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 4, 2009 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens A little gem of enjoyment at the end of the summer, My One And Only moves along in cruise control, at a steady even pace. Nov 13, 2019 Full Review Simon Foster sbs.com.au The next time someone bemoans 'They just don't make 'em like they used to,' buy them a ticket to My One and Only. Sometimes they do, and sometimes they make them better. Aug 10, 2010 Full Review Simon Weaving Screenwize A road-movie with a flat tire, this is a dull journey that follows the teenage George Hamilton as he and his mother set off to find a new life along Route 66. It's a lifeless comedy, long on trivial adventure and short on drama and energy. Rated: 2/5 Mar 10, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      isla s This is a pretty easy watch - there is comedy, although it isn't exactly hilarious throughout, its definitely gentle comedy but I still found it amusing of course. Its about a lady (Anne Devereaux) who appears a bit of a bluffer, trying to be seen to be above her station, as it were, someone very much aspirational and keen to be seen as up and coming, a socialite. I suppose its about portraying, or maintaining an image once your situation has changed - trying to keep up with the Joneses a bit. I liked that the lighting is mostly quite soft - there's a moderate yellow tinge used and it has the look and feel of a 1920s-1940s film. It also features some fairly low tempo jazz/instrumental music played in the background at times, giving it a slight film noir feel, although this isn't a crime film of course. Anne is clearly not the sort of person we should want to aspire to ourselves and yet she's shown to clearly care for her children and she tries to do well for them. Reece Witherspoon does alright playing her. She is someone you can half laugh at and feel sorry for, to an extent, I reckon. I thought it was reasonably stylish and an easy and overall enjoyable watch, so I'd recommend it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member 3.0. This was a good movie about the Times Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/17/21 Full Review Callison D I saw this movie several years ago, and really connected with it. A certain segment of viewers will really enjoy this movie, such as divorced middle-aged women who find it hard to find a good man. Renee Zellweger has always proved that she is a top-notch actress. Men who prefer Tom Cruise action type movies probably won't really like this. It shows how the actress goes through several relationships, and for me, I could really relate. It's based on the story of actor George Hamilton and his growing up without a father. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/16/20 Full Review Lee W A really charming movie about mothers and sons. Zellwegger owns this and her every gesture perfectly creates the character; a privileged ex-southern belle who cannot think of any way to live except to marry. The two young actors who play the boys are just cranky enough to be real. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/13/19 Full Review Audience Member Seen it more than once. Mary liked it too. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/11/18 Full Review Audience Member Renee Zellwegger and Logan Lehrman proved themselves worth to wait performances Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
