The Ugly Truth*Review*


"Abby(Katherine Heigl), an uptight television producer knows the 'perfect guy' is out there-Somewhere. Romantically challenged as she is, she refuses to give up that notion of that perfect guy(she even has a check list for potential Mr. Rights). That is, until her path crosses with a stubborn, chauvinistic guy named Mike(Gerard Butler) who runs a show, aptly named The Ugly Truth, all about what men really want from woman. Abby hates Mike from the moment she laid eyes on him(or was it the moment he opened his mouth?), but soon finds herself needing his help to land the perfect guy who happens to have moved into the house next door."

My Thoughts:

Okay. Three little words to describe this film: I. LOVE. IT. Seriously, the fact that two of my favorite actors starred in this film drew me in when I first saw the trailer, but when I saw the movie itself, everything about it just fell together into the perfect, little puzzle that had me in when the credits started rolling.

If you know me, you would know that I'm not a big fan of the comedy genre because none of the movies make me laugh! Very rarely will a film tickle my fancy (and funny bone), but I have not come across one that made me REALLY laugh. In The Ugly Truth, the humor is definitely crude and very sexual, but the whole time I was in the theater myself and everyone around me (and I do mean EVERYONE) were doubled over in hysterics! They were not kidding when they rated it R.

Of course it's one of those boy-meets-girl*boy-and-girl-loath-each-other*boy-and-girl-gradually-fall-in-love type movies, but the fact about that is the writers and director put a whole new spin on the concept-It was very refreshing, actually. Even though my favorite romantic movies start out with the characters hating each other, it gets old after awhile, you know? Let me tell you, I was SO not bored with this film!

This is most definitely one of my new favorites and I can't wait until it comes out on DVD! If you have a chance, don't walk-RUN to the theater and buy yourself a ticket to see The Ugly Truth.

**This is an opinion solely based on my thoughts and opinions of the movie in question and no one elses. I was not influenced one way or another to write the subject matter in this review, so if you don't like it or don't agree with it, that is your choice and I fully respect it so please extend me the same curtsy**
