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.

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.
