Movie Info

By day, Richard Haig is a successful and well-respected English professor at renowned Trinity College in Cambridge. By night, Richard indulges his own romantic fantasies with a steady stream of beautiful undergraduates. But Richard has grown tired of the game and is looking for something more meaningful and lasting. So when Kate, Richard's tanned, athletic, 25-year-old American girlfriend tells him that she is pregnant, Richard is thrilled. He looks forward to having a family of his own, being a father his children could be proud of, not some sex-fueled bobcat. There is only one problem. Richard's not in love with Kate. Richard is in love with Kate's sister, Olivia. He had been in love with her ever since he first saw her.

Critic Reviews for Some Kind of Beautiful

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (8)

The Hollywood romantic comedy hits an astonishing new low with this disastrous pairing for Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek.

Top Critic

Mainly the comic outcomes of these setups are painfully predictable and when they aren't ... they border on the offensive.

August 21, 2015 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

A 99-minute film that seems to last for three hours ... one of the worst films to sport the label "romantic comedy."

August 20, 2015 | Full Review…

A string of hackneyed situations and faux "edgy" humor you wouldn't find on even the worst episode of "Frasier."

August 20, 2015 | Full Review…

The sentimental side of the back half of the film doesn't fit with the bedroom farce sensibilities going before.

August 20, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Sometimes, [the film] wants to be light farce, all repartee and two-dimensional characters; other times it wants to be a contender, with deathbed scenes and motivating lectures on romantic poetry. At all times it's a tremendous waste of talent.

Audience Reviews for Some Kind of Beautiful

½

Some Kind of Beautiful is a quirky romantic comedy that's kind of fun. After learning that his girlfriend is pregnant poetry professor Richard Haig gives up his teaching position in order to start a family, but when the relationship falls apart he tries to work something out that will allow him to stay in his son's life. Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek, and Jessica Alba lead the cast and do a fairly good job at handling the lighthearted comedy. But the writing is rather weak, relying on a lot of tropes and needless plot contrivances. And the jokes can be a little hit-and-miss. Still, Some Kind of Beautiful is an entertaining film that has a bit of charm to it.

I have to say this was not as bad as I thought it would be. With solid performances throughout and a great performance from Pierce Brosnan this romantic comedy has more going for it than most where it counts.
