The Hollywood romantic comedy hits an astonishing new low with this disastrous pairing for Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek.
Justin Chang, Variety, 2015-08-23
Mainly the comic outcomes of these setups are painfully predictable and when they aren't ... they border on the offensive.
Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail, 2015-08-21
A 99-minute film that seems to last for three hours ... one of the worst films to sport the label "romantic comedy."
Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2015-08-20
A string of hackneyed situations and faux "edgy" humor you wouldn't find on even the worst episode of "Frasier."
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 2015-08-20
The sentimental side of the back half of the film doesn't fit with the bedroom farce sensibilities going before.
Linda Barnard, Toronto Star, 2015-08-20
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.
Liz Braun, Toronto Sun, 2015-08-20
Some Kind Of Beautiful has a fine cast, but they're stuck doing shtick.
Noel Murray, AV Club, 2015-08-20
Hayek swings for the fences, but none of the gags she's tasked with delivering are funny, not even when she desperately pantomimes various breathless expressions men make when they orgasm.
