Trivia

On Our Own was financed by Murfreesboro, Tennessee philanthropist Robert W. McLean, who earned less than $20,000 in five years but obtained $40 million in loans and borrowed another $10 million. In 2007, McLean became the target of an investigation by several federal agencies and was forced into involuntary bankruptcy by hundreds of creditors who claimed he owed them more than $20 million they invested with him. Later that year he committed suicide. See more »

Goofs

Early in the film when Clancy and Bobbie are sitting at the diner bar, Bobbie's glass of tea changes from full, to less-than-full, to full again. The scene shot from in front of the counter shows a full glass while the takes shot from behind the counter show a less-the-full glass. See more »

A film for all of us
24 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was very much drawn to the hometown feel of this film. I've actually been to Shelbyville, Tennessee, where the film takes place and the director, Cameron Watson, captures the town quite well.

A lot of the acting is quite good as well. Allison Janney can do no wrong as she breathes life into her character throughout every moment. Jason Ritter's simplicity is something to aspire to as an actor. Character actress, Beth Grant, forces you to watch her as closely as you can to see what she'll do next; her most subtle movements are her most brilliant and truthful. And newcomer, Autumn Reeser, lights up the screen whenever she appears; overflowing with charm and grace, you cannot help but root for her to win. I expect to see a lot more of her in the near future.
