Goofs

The letter to Richard Haig at the end of the film is addressed to 170 Trinity Lane, Cambridge CB2 TTB. There are barely a handful of buildings on Trinity Lane to come close to 170 (most aren't numbered anyway, just college names). Also, the postcode looks like it was incorrectly transcribed by the researcher - Trinity Lane postcodes are CB2 1T* See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Richard: 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.
[we see that he is talking to a young boy]
Richard: Look, I owe you an explanation, but honestly, I don't know where to begin.

An infuriating film with obnoxious characters
24 August 2015 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about a British university professor who falls on love with an American student. She becomes pregnant, they all move to USA to start a new life, by unfortunately things go wrong and they separate soon afterwards.

"How to Make Love Like an Englishman" has a comedic title, but it is not comedic at all. The three main characters are not only unsympathetic, but actually obnoxious. No one remains faithful to their partners, everyone is foul mouthed. People act irresponsibly at just about every occasion, such as ruining the alcoholic anonymous meeting, or playing with the sister when the green card appointment is in a few days. If Richard really wants to stay in USA, he should at least act a bit more responsibly. Many things in the film don't make sense either, such as Kate staying at the house next door to let her sister take care of the son.

Avoid this film. It's not funny at all, actually it's infuriating to watch.
