Storyline Heading

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a romantic comedy with primarily female and date movie appeal, but the humor is often a bit raunchy--hence the R rating. Sex gags and strong language make the film inappropriate for children. Fans of stars Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler will be pleased by this showcase vehicle for the both of them.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average One thing The Ugly Truth has going for it is that, unlike many romantic comedies, this one is actually funny - not consistently, but there are enough laughter-inducing scenes to keep things from becoming too tedious.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average At its conclusion, I am forced to report, it provides abundant evidence of my belief that a good movie has rarely featured a hot-air balloon.

USA Today Full Review
Average Despite its appealing stars, The Ugly Truth is a charmless romantic comedy.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 165 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS FROM ALL AGES, BOTH MALES AND FEMALES! There were some average and below average reviews, but they make up a relatively small percentage of the total. I suspect that many of the lower reviews are due to the somewhat strong sexual content. If the sexual content doesn't bother you I'm confident that you will agree with the majority of moviegoers and think "The Ugly Truth" is great and VERY FUNNY!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Abby Richter (Heigl) is an ambitious morning talk show producer on "A.M. Sacramento” who prides herself on being able to find an instant solution to any problem – any problem that is except her own unhappily single status. When it comes to dating, the always-in-control Abby has a flawless track record of failure. When her show suffers a ratings slump, Abby is forced to team with the newly recruited special correspondent Mike Chadway (Butler), a man who couldn't push more of her buttons. His "The Ugly Truth” segment promises to spill the beans on what makes men really tick. But his outrageously racy, gleefully chauvinistic, "shock jock” style rubs Abby in all the wrong ways and to make matters worse, becomes an instant ratings bonanza, sealing his network status. Then Abby meets Colin, her neighbor, and he's a single doctor! He's everything Mike Chadway isn't –suave, polite, not remotely into jello wrestling -- and this time, Abby doesn't want to blow it. She hates to admit it, but she needs Mike's insight into the male mind to make the right moves. Now, as Mike coaches Abby and Abby puts Mike's provocative seduction theories to the test, they are both about to discover an ironic truth: as different as we might be, men and women share some of our most secret feelings in common.
