By day, Richard Haig (Pierce Brosnan) is a successful and well-respected English professor in the UK. By night, Richard indulges his own romantic fantasies with a steady stream of beautiful undergraduates. So when Kate (Jessica Alba), Richard’s stunning, athletic, 25-year-old American girlfriend tells him that she is pregnant, Richard is shocked. Putting his wandering eye behind him, he marries her and agrees to move to Los Angeles to start their family. It doesn't take long for Richard to realize that his past is hard to escape, as is the toll his strained relationship with his dysfunctional father has had on him. Kate told Richard, she likes someone else. They got divorced, but it didn't stop Richard moving on. Before he married Kate, he was in love with Olivia. So they started dating and got back together after his divorce.
