Formula can be fun, as it is here.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Daring and dirty, making it so delicious.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 7, 2009
By the end, you actually want these two cardboard cutouts to get together.

August 7, 2009
This fails to achieve anything special or spectacular and what we're left with is a rather run-of-the-mill, albeit more raunchy and definitely enjoyable, tale of opposites attracting.

August 7, 2009
This is a romcom made very much in the ribald spirit of lad-centric comedies such as The Hangover, and it makes a refreshing change. Sappy, it ain't.
| Original Score: 4/5
August 7, 2009
Romantic comedies aren't meant to be believable, but this one really stretches it. Nevertheless there is some enjoyment to be found.

August 7, 2009
Legally Blonde director Luketic keeps the film light and frothy, and the script (penned by three women) isn't afraid to flavour the romance with a little raunch.
August 7, 2009
Surprisingly sharp and sassy, this romcom for grown-ups is like many a romantic dalliance - the thrill of the chase is more fun than the catch.

If you're expecting a sophisticated battle of the sexes comedy with smart, witty dialogue, you'll be disappointed, but there's genuine chemistry between Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler, and in director Robert Luketic's hands, there's fun to be had
July 24, 2009
Left to her own devices, Heigl drowns in the role, but Butler always steps in with a life preserver of comedic timing and saves most of the scenes.

Despite the fact that it swims in a veritable ocean of romantic comedy clichés, The Ugly Truth should manage to captivate and charm men and women alike.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
July 24, 2009
The ugly truth about The Ugly Truth is the fact that -- funny though it is -- it could have been a whole lot funnier.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 24, 2009
As rom-coms go, this isn't the weakest you'll see this year or month, and the unusual R rating allows it to slip into moments of refreshing edginess.

July 24, 2009
The Ugly Truth stands or falls on the farce skills of Heigl. I like her, and I liked her in this movie.

What appeared to be another cliché romantic comedy, The Ugly Truth adds the raunchy angle and delivers some very decent laughs with your expected ending.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 24, 2009
A crass, simple-minded and highly contrived R-rated comedy that's nonetheless outrageously funny and irresistibly entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.1/10
July 23, 2009
This must-see date movie provides valuable insights into the mysteries of what makes men and women tick.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
July 23, 2009
Butler almost made me forget a naked Leonidas. Here is the benchmark for charisma and chemistry with a co-star.

July 23, 2009
Under the direction of Robert Luketic, The Ugly Truth is pleasingly glossy, refreshingly snarky and startlingly sexy.
July 23, 2009
The script is crude and obvious, but there is a good idea here -- inverting the classic Cyrano de Bergerac story with a gender switch.
Full Review | Original Score: B
