Richard followed in his father's footsteps as Cambridge literature professor. Having fallen in love with LA socialite student Kate, he decides to move for her to California, enjoying a grand villa her father gave them but settling for a tacky position in a second-rate college. The relationship goes wrong, like his next with her bossy sister Olivia, but this time he's devoted to their darling son and caught up I a hedonistic lifestyle of mild (?) debauchery. Things are further complicated by new partners and his expiring immigration terms.Written by

It's important you understand, it's not you, it's me. What we have is so special. I love you more than I can say, but I'm sorry, truly, because, I fucked up.

Look, I owe you an explanation, but honestly, I don't know where to begin.

I like ROMCOM's, what else can I say? Solid 7 Stars from me!
Hayek, Alba and Brosnan work it out. I didn't have any idea what I was expecting with this movie, but I was pleasantly surprised and pleased. It had some good humor, which is the COM part and it had some intimacy, which is the ROM part. That sums it up for ROMCOM. It is an enjoyable, light-heart-ed movie. It is also a great date flick. Of course, I adore my Latinas! The little boy was excellent in his role as well. The acting was great, especially the father's eye's when he looked at his son (Brosnan) with great intent. I've never seen such a piercing set of eyes with intensity. I rated this a bit higher to see if we can get it to a Solid 6 Stars. I don't care for enjoyable movies being below 6 Stars. If you like ROMCOM's, you will enjoy it as well.
