Some Kind of Beautiful [DVD + Digital]

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 12/1/15

I enjoyed this fun little romantic comedy. It's largely carried by the charm of Pierce Brosnan. Fortunately, I love him and watch all of his movies.  He's older but still gorgeous. He plays an English professor who's a bit of a womanizer (he sort of takes after his dad, played by the always-great Malcolm McDowell). He marries a very young woman (a student in his class), and they have a wonderful son. Later, he gets involved with her sister. 

Basically, the movie is about a middle-aged (or slightly older) guy who's realized that he's made mistakes (by acting like his father) and has to get his act together when terrible things happen as a result of his stupidity.  But that makes it sound too heavy. There are a lot of jokes and fun in the movie.

The two women are played by Jessica Alba and Salma Hayek. They do a great job, particularly Hayek, but most of the movie is Brosnan. Ben McKenzie, another favorite actor of mine, also has a small but memorable role. It's an enjoyable little film.

Witness the hilarious romantic comedy about finding love in all the wrong places when it arrives on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD December 1 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

SANTA MONICA, CA (September 21, 2015) -From the director of What Happens In Vegas, comes a hilarious romantic comedy about finding love in all the wrong places as Some Kind of Beautiful arrives on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD December 1 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The film is currently available On Demand. Starring an exceptional cast including Pierce Brosnan (Die Another Day), Salma Hayek (Frida) and Jessica Alba (Sin City franchise), life is about to get complicated in this charming love triangle. 
Richard (Brosnan) is a successful college professor who gives up a steady stream of one-night-stands and beautiful undergrads for fatherhood with much younger Kate (Alba).  Three years later when Kate falls in love with someone else and moves out, she sends her sister, Olivia (Hayek), to make sure Richard is properly caring for there son. Assuming Richard is back to his irresponsible playboy lifestyle, Olivia is shocked when she starts to fall in love with him, herself.
