Above average romcom
- The Ugly Truth review by Rob S
Excellent rom com with good performances (especially from Gerard Butler). The plot revolves around a TV station trying to boost ratings by employing Butler as a kind of life agony uncle who is in no way PC. Heigl is his producer with her own relationship hang ups and that's the basis for the film - how the two get along (or don't). I would say that this is more appealing to a male audience than most films of this genre. It does have a number of laughs in it and receives a warm recommendation.
