I'll be the first to admit that I'm a true sucker for chick flicks. It's a not-so-guilty pleasure of mine, so when I saw a film with Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl, I couldn't wait to see it. (I have no idea why I waited until DVD though...) Anyway, the film follows Abby, the stereotypical beautiful cat lady completely disillusioned with love, and Mike Chadway, an equally disillusioned ego maniacal man hell-bent on changing Abby's perception of the perfect romance.
The Ugly Truth has all the makings of a great chick flick - hot leading man, relatable leading lady, and a plot that sounds fun and entertaining. That's about where it stopped for me though. I don't know if you guys have ever watched How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, but I'm pretty sure that's the greatest modern chick flick. It seamlessly blends innuendos, hilarity, and enough drama to keep you on your toes. The Ugly Truth, on the other hand, was just crass...and vulgar...and although funny at points...really really obnoxious.
I was honestly really disappointed in this film, but maybe I was just expecting something too different when I started it. I give this film a 3 out of 5 because the actors played their parts well, even if I didn't really like the general script. I'd recommend this only for mature audiences (lots of swearing etc.) Below is the trailer for those who've yet to see the film.
