The screenplay is written by three females, who write women like they hate them and men like they've never met a real one.

The ugly truth about this film is that it may convince males out there that it's okay to be a pig.

[It] attempts to be hip and edgy by featuring plenty of discussions about boy parts and girl parts and how they become friends with one another. However, the makers of this film clearly have no idea about how men and women actually interact.

If all you need is a fix of puerile smut and puddle-deep romantic giggles and can't wait for the next episode of Two and a Half Men, The Ugly Truth should do the trick.

The Ugly Truth has all the honesty and romance of an Axe body spray commercial.

...there's no finesse or scarcity to lend impact to the vulgarity. It's handled with all the craftsmanship of an infant wielding an arc welder.

A putative romantic comedy about the fundamental differences between men and women, it reduces both genders to emotional cripples while failing to find any humor in the situation.

...a mildly diverting yet thoroughly uninvolving romantic comedy...

As a girls'-night-out movie for those in the right frame of mind, it gets some laughs, even a few big ones. But this opposites-attract comedy is wildly uneven: There are long stretches of down time, and some of the humor is so crude it backfires.

Apparently, the ugly truth is that neither sex needs or deserves respect. How romantic. The 'Sex and the City' gals would be proud.

Formula can be fun, as it is here.

This lackluster, stereotypical movie attempts to update its shopworn formula with a stream of four letter words and sexually crude phrases in Judd Apatow fashion but ends up turning off everyone in the process.

Allowing the characters to talk dirty adds nothing to the chick flick formula.

THE UGLY TRUTH isn't as painfully predictable as THE PROPOSAL, and it's funnier too. That doesn't mean it's a complete success. I never really wanted the two leads to end up with each other, and the transition in which they fall in love is clunky.

Yet another wearying "battle-of-the-sexes" romp that's sure to please dumb people but didn't please me.

Daring and dirty, making it so delicious.

Heigl is said to have fallen out with Apatow since the making of Knocked Up. Maybe she should reconnect with him.

It's hard to believe the script is attributed to three women, because this could send the Women's Movement back sixty years.
