Katherine Heigl stars as a lovelorn television producer who's made to run a gauntlet of romantic exploits by a pig-headed morning-show host (played by Gerard Butler) as a way to prove whose romantic methods are more accurate. Legally Blonde's Robert Luketic directs from a script by Karen McCullah Lutz, Kirsten Smith, and Nicole Eastman. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"We're left with a few giggles and the option to be offended by the gender stereotypes - if we can be bothered."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"The Ugly Truth has a nice moment here and there, but there is much more ugliness than truth."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"The screenplay is written by three females, who write women like they hate them and men like they've never met a real one."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"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."
‑ Simon Foster, sbs.com.au
"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."
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
"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."
‑ Christopher Orr, The New Republic
"Aside from being relational science-fiction, The Ugly Truth feels about 150 years out of date -- or it would, if the script weren't so clinically dependent on the topics of masturbation and genitalia and raunch."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"The ugly truth about this film is that it may convince males out there that it's okay to be a pig."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"The Ugly Truth has all the honesty and romance of an Axe body spray commercial."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"...a mildly diverting yet thoroughly uninvolving romantic comedy..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It's just not believable."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"Say no to Hollywood hackery and cynical, demographic-courting filmmaking. Say no to movies made by people who condescend and treat you like bleating sheep. Say no to The Ugly Truth."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"[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."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"...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."
‑ Rubin Safaya, Cinemalogue.com
