My One and Only DVD Review By John C.

***1/2 (out of 4)

In 1953, Anne Deveraux (Renée Zellweger) left her cheating husband in New York, and took her two sons on a road trip, trying to find a place to settle down. The story is loosely based on the life of George Hamilton. The adventures that ensue are in equal amounts quirky and sweet, and each scene is worth watching.

The acting is all excellent. In particular Logan Lerman as the younger son, George. But it is Mark Rendall, as older brother Robbie, who steals every scene he’s in.

This is a wonderfully funny and touching film, that truly is a small gem. My One and Only is one of the nicest surprises of this year. This one is well worth looking out for on DVD.

The DVD includes behind the scenes and making-of featurettes.


My One and Only DVD Review By Erin V.

***3/4 (out of 4)

In My One and Only, Renée Zellweger plays Anne Deveraux, a mother of two teenage sons who takes them, and leaves her cheating husband behind, to take a road trip across the country to start a new life.

The main character of the story, if you will, is actually the younger son, George, who is played quite well by Logan Lerman. He is the narrator off and on, and right from the opening scene he’s in, trying to buy a car, I knew I would really like this movie. The opening credits with old tv jingles was also quite fun and fitting.

As you can probably tell, I really liked My One and Only. The film had a certain charm and heart about it. The ‘50’s style felt real, and all of the actors gave great performances. Notably, Mark Rendall as Robbie, and Logan Lerman as George - both are young and talented actors. I would definitely recommend this one! _____________________________________________
