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.

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.

Funny, surprising, moving and uplifting, the film soars in a restrained, early 50s kind of way

A sharp and witty script provides the fuel for this captivating road trip in which the potential husbands of Renee Zellweger's Ann Deveraux are the pit stops.

feels like a black-and-white rerun on late-night TV.

Even if it isn't as singular -- or as memorable -- as its title might suggest, it's sweet enough and soft enough around the edges to make it a diverting little road trip.

A pleasant trifle of a movie that doesn't let facts interfere with a good fable.

In the midst of blockbusters that involve giant robots and teen wizards, "My One and Only" is an enjoyable film that got lost in the cinematic shuffle of 2009.

You don't have to care anything about George Hamilton in order to enjoy this surprisingly entertaining little movie that will remind you why you once liked Renée Zellweger.

Depressing tale of a mother's love, or at least what she thinks love is.

What could have been a maddening portrait of spoiled self-entitlement is, instead, a plucky tale... Zellweger creates a nice portrait of chin-keeping-up-erness combined with encroaching self-awareness....

Scripter Charlie Peters falters when it comes to the big picture.

Melodramatic, starting and stopping without achieving a flow.

Zellweger does a nice job keeping her character more sympathetic than pathetic, as the realization that she is no longer an ingénue lets her become something more.

A sweet, sentimental, occasionally naughty, attractively mounted piece of old-fashioned hokum that will appeal to audiences, mostly female, of a certain age.

This vintage set road comedy has enough amiable charms to make it across the finish line for those who like their movies to stay out of the fast lane.

My One and Only reveals the man behind the tan - and George Hamilton's feisty ma, too.
