The Ugly Truth
The story begins when romantically challenged morning show producer (Katherine Heigl) agrees to a series of outrageous tests by her male correspondent (Gerard Butler) to prove his theories on relationships and allows her to find love. His clever ploys, however, lead to the totally unexpected result—she finds love at the same time that he falls in love with her. I know what they mean by "never listen to what reviews say or write and they only get paid to tell whether or not the movie is worth watching. Well, I don't get paid by the productions companies to state my opinion (yet). Which is why I'm going to tell the honest truth and it may even be the ugly truth but I liked it. The characters were not supposed to have chemistry! The whole film is based on them hating each other but secretly falling in love with one another. The situations they worked into the movie were outrageously hilarious and I don't think anyone in the theatre didn't like it. Do yourselves a favor and watch this if you want a good laugh. Come on, Katherine Heigl is in it! That alone led me to go see The Ugly Truth. 3 out of 4 stars.
