“The Ugly Truth”
Release Date: July 24, 2009
This has to be Katherine Heigl’s best film. Now, Gerard Butler carries the rest of the movie, but Heigl is absolutely hilarious in this romantic comedy. Heigl plays a romantically challenged news producer who has a checklist about the perfect man. With her news program on the verge of getting the ax, Abby’s boss decides to hire a local guy, Mike Chadway, who tells the ugly truth…that sex is the only thing that can really hold a relationship together. Abby finally finds a man that meets all the requirements on her checklist and reluctantly, Abby agrees to let Mike help her out in setting Abby and her neighbor up.
There will be several moments in the movie that will have you laughing out loud uncontrollably, if you do not take this film that serious and just relax and not critique every little thing. Butler and Heigl form a great duo for a rom com. Sure, some people may find this movie offensive, but if you are looking for a good laugh, some romance or a little bit of both, then this is the movie for you.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
