Some Kind of Beautiful


British literature professor Richard Haig (Pierce Brosnan) starts a new family with his much younger American girlfriend (Jessica Alba), but his first encounter with her fiery sister (Salma Hayek) is embarrassingā€¦ A romantic comedy that works above all as a vehicle for Brosnanā€™s charm. He seems to be enjoying himself, and so does Hayek, but theyā€™re stuck in a moronic story that constantly tries to find the right effortless tone; not easy to do when every joke falls flat. Still, reasonably well paced and benefits from its two locations, California and Cambridge in the UK.

2015-U.S. 99 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Tom Vaughan. Cast: Pierce Brosnan (Richard Haig), Salma Hayek (Olivia), Jessica Alba (Kate), Malcolm McDowell, Ben McKenzie, Merrin Dungeyā€¦ Marlee Matlin.

Trivia: Co-executive produced by Brosnan. Released in Canada as How to Make Love Like an Englishman and in Britain as Lessons in Love. Michelle Pfeiffer was allegedly considered as Olivia.
