Did You Know?


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 »


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 »

This is a Film for everyone who loves a great story!
10 April 2006 | by (Bradenton/Sarasota, FLORIDA) – See all my reviews

I completely recommend this film to anyone who wants to see a film w/ heart, soul & passion. I admit that walking into it I was skeptical, but I absolutely loved what Allison Janney & Jason Ritter brought to the production. Evey scene they are in, you can't help but pay attention to. Autumn Reeser is also a delightful surprise. I am only familiar to her work on the O.C. but after seeing her in this film, is relateable and completely an actor to watch out for in the future!

See this if it comes to a theatre near you! I'm glad that some of the stars as well as the Director & Producers were in attendance at the Sarasota Film Festival. It gave me a greater respect for their work on this project. Congratulations to them all for not making a Hollywood crap film. We All Thank you!
