I watched The Ugly Truth from 2009 and I really enjoyed it. It’s a typical romantic comedy but once the characters started developing I became invested in them.
The movie is about a TV producer, Abby, played by Katherine Heigl. A new guy named Mike, played by Gerard Butler, comes to work at her station. The two butt heads a lot because Abby is a high-strung prude and Mike is an extremely blunt “man whore.” They eventually become friends and Mike helps Abby snag a guy but starts to fall for her. The ending is as predictable as ever, you know the drill.
It was completely unbelievable to have Katherine Heigl play an uncharismatic, annoying, can’t-get-a-guy, desperate woman. But if you can get past that the movie’s good. A plus was all the eye candy in the movie. Gerard Butler is amazing and Eric Winter from “Brothers and Sisters” is soo handsome! I liked how both characters, Abby and Mike, make significant changes by the end of the movie. Abby learned how to let loose and have fun, while Mike learned that personality is actually under the skin, not just under the clothes.
