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 »

Our Very Own Has Too Many Plots and Sub-Plots **
11 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A story taking place in Shelbyville, Tennessee, this is the film "Our Very Own." It's the usual coming of age film with teenagers growing up and doing some silly things along the way.

The two bright stars in the film are Keith Carradine and Alison Janney, both of whom give splendid performances as dysfunctional parents. Carradine is emulating his dead alcoholic brother. His drinking has cost him his job and further threatens the stability of his disintegrating marriage. As the suffering wife, Janney turns in a powerhouse performance. Her mood swings convey the desperation she faces.

The "kids" performing in a high school show is amateurish at best. Carradine and Janney should have been used more. Their on screen chemistry is just great to see on the screen.
