The Ugly Truth (2009)
Critic Consensus: Despite the best efforts of Butler and Heigl, The Ugly Truth suffers from a weak script that relies on romantic comedy formula, with little charm or comedic payoff.

Critic Reviews for The Ugly Truth
We're left with a few giggles and the option to be offended by the gender stereotypes - if we can be bothered.
I think it's safe to say that the concerns about sexism in cinema that Heigl voiced so ardently after her career-making turn in Knocked Up have ebbed in direct proportion to the increases in her subsequent paychecks.
The Ugly Truth has a nice moment here and there, but there is much more ugliness than truth.
Aside from being relational science-fiction, The Ugly Truth feels about 150 years out of date -- or it would, if the script weren't so clinically dependent on the topics of masturbation and genitalia and raunch.
Audience Reviews for The Ugly Truth
This was so funny. First ten minutes or so didn't think it was going to be very good, but then it really picks up. Good chick flick . Couldn't stop laughing at a few of the bits in this. Didn't really like Gerard Butler, but I could overlook that.
The Ugly Truth has all the honesty and romance of an Axe body spray commercial.
Not that funny at all, formulaic, and unlikely. All the sexist, raunchy jokes are just not that funny and while these actors can act, they're just given crap to work with.
