The Ugly Truth – Review


I am a sucker for Romantic comedies. Oh boy, I just love them. Ugly truth was one of the movies that stood up on my pending list. Was lucky enough to catch up on it! I won’t be able to give justice in writing a review to this movie. However, I shall give it a try. Like I say; a half-baked effort. 😀

The movie has the perfect ingredients. Katheine Hiegl is a wonderful actress whom I loved in Knocked up and 27 Dresses. Gerard Butler is wonderfully amazing in the movie 300. He took my by quite a surprise when he played a rather mushy and a charming person in P.S.I Love you. Well much of it has to be attributed to his Scottish accent.

Movie starts off with a control freak TV producer – Abby (Katherine), who has lots of conceptions or rather misconceptions about her Man. She is something a man doesn’t want to be with. Ridicules, argues, controls. OMG!!! Her hilarious nature can be seen when she goes to date someone and makes a fool out of herself over there. The chief suggests a change to her boring show by bringing in the crude and charming Mike Chadway (Gerrard Butler) into the show. She objects as usual. However, in the trial show the ratings skyrocket. Their Tom and Jerry journey starts. They keep on ridiculing each other and pulling legs.

Story takes a turn when Abby meets the hot next door doctor Colin (Eric Winter). Mike gives the helping hand and takes control over the situation. He guides her into the way Colin would want her to be. They get quite close on the way. They start liking each other’s company and even start appreciating each other. Proceeding further will get me the tag of ‘The Bloody Spoiler’:D

It is a movie where timing comic timing matter; which has been like clockwork. The movie has been packed with a lot of subtle sequences which brings about a laugh or a smile in your face. Other scenes are a laugh riot.

Katherine Hiegl & Gerrard Butler compliments each other quite well and their chemistry is awesome. The supporting cast has chipped in well. The way Butler handles the show is awesome and his revelations.

Scenes to watch out for: Team party scene, which reminds you of a scene in ‘Harry met Sally’; Climax; & the First show of ‘The Ugly Truth’.

Final Rating: 4/5
