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.

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. If you feel like insulting a loved one or in a mood for a nice date movie then this is for you.

A chick movie that guys will love!

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. Neurotic and controlling she hasn't been on an exciting date for eleven months so Mike makes her a deal--he will help her nab the doctor of her dreams who moved in next door in exchange for her approval or quit. She does not like Mike’s outspokenness but much to Abby’s surprise, the ratings skyrocket so she reluctantly agrees to let him help her.

Of course the typical romantic comedy formula takes over and Abby and Mike eventually start falli...

There's a Bird In My Dressing Room

Nicole Eastman needs a nod of approval for her silly romantic comedy about the differences between men and women. When Gerard Butler's face appeared on the screen in his ridiculous try for an American dialect, I just about wanted to walk out. But who can walk out on Katherine Heigl. She's just adorable, idn't she? So I watched and laughed and laughed and laugned. This was truly one of the funniest movies of the summer, poking fun at relationships, newsmen, men, women, and the ugly truth that guides us all. I loved the amount of sexual innuendos poked at each, without it going over the top or becoming too...dare I say it..."Watiting"-ish. A fine line was walked but never crossed at an inappropriate moment. Even if you don't like the premise, the movie is made by the hysterical Cher...
