Storyline

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 KGF Vissers

Different, not sweet and easy at all.
14 October 2015 | by kms-91461See all my reviews

I read reviews and expected disaster. In fact it's quite different from what one may expect. It is not a typical romantic comedy, there is a lot of satire on the American way of living, while the whole film should not be taken too seriously. It is a fun, beautiful places, good acting. Just some life reality, although shown from a little bit funny perspective. Just enjoy it, because you can. I am a real fan of Brosnan and think he delivers as usual. Handsome despite his age, keeps just a proper distance to himself and the guy he plays. All leading actors are just fine and convincing. Watch it and you will enjoy it. May by this is not an extremely ambitious and complicated movie, but don't we need some fun from time to time? In addition, the backdrop landscape is just so nice to watch. So why not give it a go.
