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

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.

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.
