George Hamilton's mom movie debuts in Berlin

Based loosely on the first half of George Hamilton's memoir, "Don't Mind If I Do" (which I reviewed here), the new film "My One and Only," starring Renee Zellweger and Kevin Bacon, debuted at the Berlin Film Festival over the weekend.

It follows Zellwegger, who plays Hamilton's mother, as she ditches her philandering husband and packs her two sons in the car and sets off on a cross-country trek to find them a step-father.

Variety, as usual, does its damnest not to end up on the poster. "[The film] should appeal not only to an older femme demographic but also to anyone who relishes queeny dialogue."

Or how 'bout this: "'My One and Only' will require some aggressive marketing and strong critical support to reverse Zellweger's sliding B.O. appeal in wake the poor performance of "New in Town."

Stinky.
