      We can live well on our own

      It's a no-holds-barred family film, with lines full of American light-hearted humour and plenty of soothing jazz that sounds great.

      Dad Danny is an artist who became popular with the song "My One and Only". Mom Ann is an elegant and beautiful person. She pays attention to her manners at all times and maintains her manners no matter what happens. After she found out that her husband had an affair with the singer at home , took the child to start a journey of running around. They...

      Hey! MOVE ON!

      WOOO! What a mother and son! Stand up, applaud, to RENEE and Logan, great, great performance; applause also goes to this movie, full, dramatic, unique Route 66 movie.
      Since life can never be smooth sailing, how do we deal with setbacks?
      RENEE told us from the beginning, and kept reminding us in the film - DON'T LOOK THE MIRROR.
      Keep walking and everything will be fine.
      Typical American thinking that is optimistic, naive and full of human morality. A bad mother, a son who...

      to mom

          "My One and the Only"
       is ashamed, the heroine is not that pretty, but super confident. She failed many times to find a marriage partner, and she was nervous about money. She even went to pawn jewelry and a car, and even met a robber who hitchhiked, but she always smiled, even if her son George argued with her to go back to find his father and stay at her sister's house. Without erasing her smile and grace, this toughness reminds me of Scarlett, the protagonist of Gone with the...

    Creative background

    The film's story was inspired by an interview between Evening Entertainment host Merv Griffin and actor George Hamilton, who together retraced Hamilton's early days with his mother and previous experience. After listening to Hamilton's narration, Griffin realized that it was a good source of material, worthy of being brought to the big screen. Screenwriter Charlie Peters loved the story of the legendary character and was quick to build...

    Evaluation action

    Structurally, the film's script strictly adheres to the principles of a Hollywood comedy film, but it's generous enough to add some funny dialogue and gags to the story to make the audience smile, although there's very little to make the audience laugh. The jokes are also far apart. Richard Loncraine's directing is effective and perceptive, if a little imperceptible, but it represents a real improvement in his directing talent, which...

    Movie quotes

    • Bill Massey: As a man, there's only one thing you need to know about a woman.

      George Devereaux: What's that?

      Bill Massey: They're never the right temperature.

      George Devereaux: No?

      Bill Massey: Something to do with their plumbing. Reproduction. Whatever reason, most of the time... they're either too hot or too cold. Mostly too cold. So what you have to do... is carry a sweater or a jacket or something with you at all times. Something you can keep in the trunk of your car... or in your closet at work... for when their thermostat gets messed up.

      George Devereaux: What else?

      Bill Massey: That's it. Once you've got that covered... there's nothing else you need to know about a woman.

    • Paula: Have you ever seen breasts?

      George Devereaux: Sure... one.

      Paula: You saw one breast?

      George Devereaux: Two. I saw two, once...

      Paula: You wanna see mine?

      George Devereaux: Who? Me? Now?
