The Ugly Truth (2009)
Critic Consensus: Despite the best efforts of Butler and Heigl, The Ugly Truth suffers from a weak script that relies on romantic comedy formula, with little charm or comedic payoff.

Critic Reviews for The Ugly Truth
Heigl is said to have fallen out with Apatow since the making of Knocked Up. Maybe she should reconnect with him.
The film is desperate to be edgy, but its attempts at adult humour are woefully misjudged.
The ugly truth about this insipid romcom is that Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler are entirely wasted.
It's not as risqué as it wishes it were, nor as likable as it should be. Butler's rarely been better-cast, but the material's too patchy to support him .
We're left with a few giggles and the option to be offended by the gender stereotypes - if we can be bothered.
Audience Reviews for The Ugly Truth
This was so funny. First ten minutes or so didn't think it was going to be very good, but then it really picks up. Good chick flick . Couldn't stop laughing at a few of the bits in this. Didn't really like Gerard Butler, but I could overlook that.
The Ugly Truth has all the honesty and romance of an Axe body spray commercial.
Not that funny at all, formulaic, and unlikely. All the sexist, raunchy jokes are just not that funny and while these actors can act, they're just given crap to work with.
