The Ugly Truth

Time Out says

1 out of 5 stars

It’s uglier than you think, as this romantic comedy offers the now de rigueur ritual humiliation of a professional woman (Heigl), while adding raunch to desperately shock life into a moribund genre. As a tightly wound television producer, Heigl flops around, by turns repressed, brassy, saucy and moronic. The Neanderthal on-air talent she hates (Butler) might as well have been written as “man who’s been hit with a two-by-four.” Hearing Heigl deliver banter about fellatio does not make this rom-com funny. Embarrassing, depressing, sexist and stupid? Sure. Charming? No.—Hank Sartin
