  • 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. show more

  • My One and Only has an old-fashioned sensibility -- and some lovely Mad Men-style costumes -- making for a pleasantly diverting road movie. show more

  • Chief among the movie's charms are Ms. Zellweger, Mr. Rendall--whose would-be actor Robbie is a dab hand at embroidery and accessorizing his stepmother--and Mr. Lerman, who plays George as a bookish adolescent with dreams of becoming a writer. show more

    We loved this movie. Thought the 90 minutes went by pretty quickly because we were kept interested through out. Renee Zellweger will certainly be nominated for her performance. Good story and loved that portions of this movie were filmed in our home state of Maryland. We don't live far from "Aunt Hope's house" Actually saw them filming there last year. Neat!

    This was a pretty good movie. I didn't know much about it but went to see it anyway. Good acting, good story and love the era. It's not boring at all. It keeps you watching for more.

    Rene Zellweger will surely get some awards for this one. George Hamilton learns how to be a good son and get some sun !
