Comedy
A montage of “greetings from” postcards and 50s advertising jingles kicks off this endlessly trite road movie, which is based on the memories of actor George Hamilton. After his mother (Renee Zellweger) catches his bandleader father (Kevin Bacon) with another woman in their Manhattan apartment, she packs George (Logan Lerman) and his effeminate stepbrother (Mark Rendall) into a brand new Cadillac and sets off across America in search of a good man. She meets plenty of bad ones (David Koechner as crazy bigamist, an egregiously miscast Chris Noth as a cruel military man) and one good one who’s too young for her (Nick Stahl doing a Marlon Brando routine). “You’re a lousy mother!” George tells her at one point, provoking her to slap him full in the face. It's hard to say whether Hamilton's life was this really this corny or 40 years of making bad movies have warped his memory. Richard Loncraine (Wimbledon) directed. PG-13, 108 min.
