Long television experience, the Scottish director Tom Vaughn is an honest professional and operates with a fluid hand each inzeppata of pretexts and implications not too credible. But the starting point is fun; and we are in the summer season that cinematically inclined to choose the genre refreshing, better if slightly old-fashioned, preferably undemanding and never mind if in essence dimwitted.
The important thing is that light it is a star for sure, albeit mature charm, as Brosnan which also form a contrasting pair guessed - he perfectly british, she deeply Latin - with the impetuous, passionate Salma Hayek. The Alba has a less well-defined, but it embodies with grace; the child Duncan Joiner inspires tenderness and Malcolm McDowell gives a nice personality surly human side to the character of the father of Richard.

When he is cornered between two sisters she is forced to grow. " To my sister's boyfriend , Pierce Brosnan is also a producer: "Yes, and it took years to turn this story into film. The idea I liked immediately: a prof womanizer who moves to Los Angeles for love, doing what he had never managed, ie he leaves his father and safeties academic. You can be born into a the-boyfriend-of-my-sister-436492dynasty in womanizing and decide to say enough? Watch the film to find out.

And this time I was not able to say the jokes: the first scene, when we meet at the Savoy Hotel in London, I could not concentrate so I was seduced by his presence! She was so beautiful, cheerful, spontaneous that I was stiff as a light pole. "

L ' man is a hunter. You are allergic to marriage, children, and monogamy yet the greatest writers of romance novels and the founders of the Romantic thought are men.
There is therefore a contradiction between the theoretical and the love that is lived in everyday life?
Yes, answer this question Richard Haig (Brosnan), the protagonist of our story, fascinating and brilliant professor of Romantic literature al'Università of Cambridge and at the same time inveterate playboy who nell'edonista and selfish father Gordon ( McDowell ), his mentor since childhood.
Richard is happy with his life, he went from one relationship to another, teaches and enjoys life. Until the beautiful young American student Kate (Alba) becomes pregnant sconvolgendogli life.
Before a lunch organized to meet the family of Kate, Richard was struck the bar from fascinating Olvia (Hayek) , flirting with her s enza know the blood tie that binds the bride, is the half-sister .
Do some initial confusion, the man decides to shoulder its responsibility and to marry Kate, and moved to California to grow the adored son Jake .

Start no way for the protagonist of a series of comic situations and romantic, aimed to get the necessary "green card" to stay in America.
A comedy that, although American, he and tones mostly British, showing a potential narrative interesting, but almost lost in the development co mpletamente momentum and intensity because of dialogues empty and little engraved dia i will.
The same storyline is forced on one side and the other side, in many scenes, the characters move according cliché discounted and banal.
The direction is quite educational and cutting television, without particular acute and creative flashes.
Like settings, alternating on the screen the rainy and elegant London with solar and hectic Los Angeles.
The weight of the film rests on the talent and glamor English Pierce Brosnan gigioneggia with class, making it believable as aged Peter Pan and managing to create, paired with the gorgeous Salma Hayek, a good chemistry and empathy, giving a hint of emotion and smiles to the viewer.
If it is anonymous and flat performance of Jessica Alba in the role of capricious sister, you can not fail to mention the sparkling performance of Mc Dowell, deliberately excessive and yet very real in the telling as many people think and act.
The final, hasty, forced and feel-good, does turn up their nose to the viewer, happy to see a play on the whole fresh and summery, but also sorry to have witnessed also the festival of obviousness and already seen on love, although it is a theme nuanced and potential, at least on paper.

Has anyone on this board seen the movie yet? Just curious. It's currently out in Italy, Greece, Turkey and on DirecTV. I don't have DirecTV, so I need to wait another few weeks for it to be out on VOD (or hopefully in a theater near me).
The few tweets I've seen on it have all been positive, and the foreign critics seem to like it well enough.

Pierce Brosnan, the former James Bond, playing the card of self-mockery in Teach Me Love.
Teach me love ** Tom Vaughan, with Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek, Jessica Alba and Malcolm McDowell. 1:40. Friday release in e-cinema.
He chose to let go. The privilege of age, experience gained during thirty-five years of career or an irrepressible desire lightness? Pierce Brosnan has nothing more to prove. Now head of his own production company, Irish Dream Time, the Irish actor of 62 years doing what he wants. For if he embodied the gentlemen in the series of surveys Remington Steele, the saga James Bond or Thomas Crown (1999), he proved that he also loved to make fun of his image of Playboy, in Mars Attacks! (1996) in Mamma Mia! (2008). Brushing impeccable, bright smile and open shirt chest out there again with Teach Me Love , romantic comedy in which he plays Richard, a professor at Cambridge University and inveterate seducer who falls in love with Kate (Jessica Alba), a of his students.
When she tells him she's pregnant, Richard assumes its responsibilities and moved to Los Angeles with his young companion for a family. Everything would be fine if he had not succumbed to the devastating charm of Olivia (Salma Hayek), the sister of Kate ... Despite a scenario sewn with white thread, the film is appreciated for its lead actors, the exuberant Salma Hayek makes its number and Pierce Brosnan coasting in a sometimes burlesque register. "I turned at the same time The November Man , a spy thriller with lots of action scenes. Besides, Teach Me Love seemed like a cakewalk. My job is exciting, I spend my time turning me . I am at a point in my life where I can experiment and almost all afford."
"There is more physical contact or embrace"
As mauling his legendary sophistication, "inherited from Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, Warren Beatty, Spencer Tracy, Cary Grant and Marlon Brando, who forged my cinema vocabulary. It produces stars, but beneath the veneer there are human beings . The public knows my true face. " In this case, that of a hopeless romantic who cries every time before Casablanca (1942). "Women have shaped my life. Unfortunately, relationships have changed because of new technologies. We opened the Pandora's box. Courtesy disappeared. Easier to send an SMS to phone. It is connected but we do not talk more, we operate, we cannibalize in a world governed by agitation, confusion, fear, religion and terrorism. We exchange on Skype, there is no physical contact or to embrace. Everything is abstract. "
Evidence of behavior change, Teach Me Love will be available in VOD, but Pierce Brosnan promotes as if the feature film enjoyed a traditional theatrical release. "What is important is to find the audience, wherever it is. I have to follow suit, no choice. There is no dividing line. But I have no ego problem . "
That may be part of it, Willi, but different countries sometimes get different edits of the same film. I noticed that the Middle Eastern trailer for this film left off the very last bit with the boy and the panties. So, I imagine that with a 15 minute difference, there is probably some actual footage that is missing in the US version. Guess we'll have to see about getting copies of both the european and the US versions to compare. :/
The version showing in Dubai is 96 minutes according to this ...
