How to Make Love Like an Englishman

Every good love story has three sides


How to Make Love Like an Englishman
Also known as ''Some Kind Of Beautiful'', this has been described as Hollywood Britsploitation. A successful college professor gives up a steady stream of one-night stands and beautiful undergrads for fatherhood with much younger woman. Three years later when she falls in love with someone else and moves out, she sends her sister to make sure he is properly caring for their son. Assuming that he is back to his irresponsible playboy lifestyle, the sister is shocked when she starts to fall in love with him herself. The critics were generally underwhelmed.
