  • There was a lot of chemistry between the lead actors, but Butler is so much more entertaining than Heigl is, in my opinion
  • There is nothing wrong with her acting, but he is so sarcastic and brooding, that I enjoyed his character a great deal
  • Of course, there is the usual love triangle, with Heigl’s character dating a steady but boring doctor, so of course it takes until the end of the movie for the lead actors’ love to flourish
  • I think Butler’s character’s lines, and his droll delivery of them, is the best part of this film
  • For a good laugh and some interesting observations, rent The Ugly Truth

      I had heard a lot of talk about the movie The Ugly Truth. Mainly, Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl were said to have a lot of on-screen chemistry. Still, it was supposed to be a chick flick, with a bit of an edge, and I would say that the edge makes this film better than your average chick flick.

      so sarcastic and brooding, that I enjoyed his character a great deal. I also enjoyed the storyline-Butler’s character is a tell-it-like-it-is television personality, who is abrasive but somehow charming, and Heigl’s lonely character is attracted to him, despite her initial feelings. While this plot is fairly cliché in romantic comedies, there is an element of political incorrectness that is highly entertaining and endearing.

      • the lead actors’ love to flourish. I think Butler’s character’s lines, and his droll delivery of them, is the best part of this film; there is enough risqué dialogue to appeal to the audience and save this movie from being too predictable. Certainly, the ‘truths’ that Butler’s character speaks of are pretty close to being insightful and accurate statements about the differences between men and women. I especially found the scenes where Butler is instructing Heigl, through an earpiece, on what to say and how to act while she is dating her
        potential mate, entertaining and very realistic. There are enough humorous insights on what men and women really want and what they really mean to make this movie fun and interesting.

        The Ugly Truth will appeal to all women who aren’t overly sensitive about gender issues, and are not afraid to hear some perhaps politically incorrect observations on relationships. Men will like this movie as well, as there are plenty of slightly sexist lines, and Butler’s character is certainly not a feminist. For a good laugh and some interesting observations, rent The Ugly Truth.
