Last night I attended the advance VIP press preview of this OVER-INFLATED CONTRIVED VULGAR SEXIST CRASS 1.5hr 'comedy'. Can you imagine the sheer amount of BLATANT PROFANITY that is required for a 'romantic-comedy' to earn a R-rating??? The PREDICTABLE awful plot - full of COPY-CAT cliches - is absolutely VILE in both delivery and whatever passes for CRUDE humor - degrades women and promotes workplace sexual harassment. Both Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler suffered from serious cases of TRYING-WAY-TOO-HARD. There was nothing natural about their CONTRIVED OVER-ACTING. Whatever happened to INTELLIGENT comedies? A comedy DOES NOT need constant barrage of profanity to elicit laughs! THE UGLY TRUTH has stooped to a all-time new low. To be blunt - THE UGLY TRUTH is TOO UGLY for kids and families. VERDICT: Avoid this movie like the plague - or it's your money and time wasted. I'm GLAD I DID NOT pay nor waste my hard-earned $$ on crap like this! GRADE: D-for DUMB.

Crass and crudely unrealistic, predictable.

Though I love Katherine Heigel and Gerard Butler, this movie was trying too hard and was just not funny. I think I heard a chuckle or two at the premier. Just lots of crude humor... mostly just a lot of stupid, crass comments between coworkers. And an unrealistic and overly predictable story line. For $9.00 at the box office, I was really hoping for something a little more from these two. At least we all know now that Katherine Heigel does have the ability to cuss and make crude and inappropriate remarks. Now, on with the show.

The Ugly Truth

The Ugly Truth is that this movie is a waste of money, even with beautiful people like Heigl and Butler. What passes for humor is merely vulgar slang that should have stopped amusing us by the time we got out of middle school. The plot is overused and predictable. Have all the witty screenwriters retired?

My wife and I saw the sneak preview (premiere) of The Ugly Truth last night. We thought it was HILARIOUS! Very good plot and acting performances. Altohough this is a romantic comedy, there is more comedy than romance; which is perfect for the guys of the world that are dragged "kicking and screaming" to these types of movies by their ladies. Let me say it one more time: Women will love it, Men will like it alot. GO SEE IT!!!
