The Ugly Truth

High-Def Digest

15 November 2009
  • Conclusion: It's a romantic comedy; so don't expect much beyond the typical battle of the sexes with the requisite sentimental ending. The film is mildly enjoyable but not entirely worth repeated viewings, and that's the real truth. Product Details

The Ugly Truth

Cinema Blend
24 July 2009
  • Excerpt: To some extent we pay good money to not be surprised in a romantic comedy. Writers can come up with new ways to meet cute all they like, but the goods of the romantic comedy remain the same-- the bickering, the furtive glances, the moment of revelation, the final clinch.

In Theaters: The Ugly Truth

movieline
21 July 2009
