Summary: The Ugly Truth about this movie is that it didn't work. The story is about a producer looking for the perfect man. Mike Alexander is a chauvinistic personality on the show. When the higher-ups decide to team the two up to test theories on relationships, an unlikely truth will be revealed. Gerard Butler character is so unlikable and forgettable, The story has way to much cliches in it.
Summary: Abby Richter (Katherine Heigl) is a high maintenance dater, producer of a lowly rated morning show about to be canceled. Her boss hires male chauvinist call-in show host Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler). Mike and Abby clash even before their first meeting. On the opposite end, she thinks her new hot doctor neighbor Colin (Eric Winter) fits the bill perfectly. This character actually fits Heigl's persona. So it has some potential right off the bat.
Excerpt: Katherine Heigl plays Abby, an uptight "control freak" TV producer whose magazine programme is going down the tubes until, against her wishes, the crass chauvinistic Mike (Gerard Butler) is brought on board with his segment “The Ugly Truth” in which he examines relationships in a crude, sensationalist way. Needless to say Abby isn't exactly happy.
Summary: Katherine Heigl (Abby Richter) and Gerard Butler (Mike Alexander) have good on-screen presence, some romantic comedies need this vital element. Solid performances from the 2 leads. The script was cleverly written, musical background and cinematography was okay. Nothing too special about this film though, I feel its the same league as He's Just Not That Into You and Sex in the City.
Summary: There is likable chemistry between the two leads, but nothing short of the rough outlines of a plot. Butler's character goes from jerk to hero in too short of a time to sympathize and the sappy coincidences that plague the third act of the film are too laughable to forgive.
Excerpt: It may not be the best romantic comedy out there, but I think this is a good movie. The movie is funny. I think some people may find the movie a little bit vulgar o may see men as the only thing they want for a woman is sex but I mean it's movie they always exagerate some facts and I think it what makes the movie funny how Heigl character try to be sexier to have lucky with men.
