Nov 30, 2010Agreeable comedy follows a mother as she attempts to find a new father for her two young sons after catching her husband with another woman. Actor George Hamilton's real life reminiscences on The Merv Griffin Show form the basis of this road movie about his childhood. Renée Zellweger plays the self absorbed woman who unrealistically thinks she can simply get by on charm alone. She is the matriarch of this rather eccentric family of three and their slight adventures form the bulk of this occasionally entertaining film. Despite her capriciousness, she remains a likable character and the best reason to see the film. Period detail of the 1950s is painstakingly recreated.Mark H Super Reviewer
Nov 28, 2010Anne Deverauxer (Renee Zelweger) is a glamorous southern belle and mother of two teenage boys who walks in on her philandering husband Dan Devereaux, musician and band director (Kevin Bacon) in bed with another woman. <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=3133nzo" target="_blank"><img src="http://i55.tinypic.com/3133nzo.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> Fed up, she packs her bags, cleans out the couple's safety deposit box and walks out taking the boys with her. One of her sons is the 15 year old Logan Lerman as George Devereaux aka George Hamilton, whom she instructs to buy a car. He is the narrator of the story. When he shows up at a Cadillac dealership with a wad of money to buy a car, the salesmen are flabbergasted, but it all makes sense when his mother shows up and purchases a 1953 blue Cadillac Eldorado convertible as they need a new car to leave town. She embarks on an adventurous road-trip hoping to find a man who would take care of them. <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=wbujkk" target="_blank"><img src="http://i52.tinypic.com/wbujkk.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> The further away they go from NY, the more the mother learns about her family and herself. Her determination to search for a new life is inspiring as she is humiliated, arrested, and dumped a bunch of times but always manages to keep her chin up. In the end she learns the most valuable lesson, that the best person to take care of you is yourself. <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=107tbao" target="_blank"><img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/107tbao.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a>Deb S Super Reviewer
Sep 17, 2010Logan Lerman's performance is the best reason to watch this film. He steals the movie. Logan happens to be a fast rising star in Hollywood with impressive performances in 3:10 to Yuma and Percy Jackson. He reminds me of a young Tobey Maguire. He should have gotten the Spider Man role in the Spider Man reboot. In this film, Logan really shines. The film is well cast, with an nice ensemble. Renee Zellweger is ok playing Logan's mother. The film kind of reminded me of a Neil Simon kind of film. The dialog is sharp and well written. The big problem with the movie is the pacing, which is completely off. Had they fixed the pacing up, then the film would have been much better. However, despite the pacing problem, the film is worth checking out, especially for Logan Lerman's performance.
Jul 08, 2010I thought it was very cute and funny. The story was enjoyable, the acting was great. I enjoyed myself. I was expecting that Renee's character Ann would end up with her husband again even though I was really rooting for Nick Stahl's character Bud. I have to say I was actually surprised by the way it turned out. I don't think it was the most perfect movie. Sometimes it seemed a little cheesy, but overall it was good. And what a wonderful cast to boot. I would recommend giving this a try.
