– The Ugly Truth..2009

Directed by Robert Luketic

rohit SAYS, 

  It is movies like these that remind us now and then that even the American audiences are not that smart after all. If a movie such as this is nearing the 100 million mark, it is a condolence in disguise to the smarter Indian movie man.

   The movie has a chauvinistic male lead and a female lead who is patronized throughout the movie about the theory of human relations. But, don’t make any complicated assumptions from that line. It is a simple, zero surprise movie which you might wanna watch in case you are having a bad day so that a lot less attention can be paid to the movie and you can still bear to sit in the theatre.

   Abby Richter (Katherine Heigl) is an award winning TV producer who decides never to play the cheaper tricks to improve the show’s ratings. However, of late her ratings start getting drastic blows because of the purely commercial shows of other TV networks.

   Here comes in the anchor of ‘The Ugly Truth’ – Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler) who has his show on a small local TV network. Mike’s show is something where gives people advice about the ugly reality of human relationships.  Abby’s boss gets Mike to be a part of Abby’s show. As expected Mike’s presence on the show gives the show super boosted ratings and eventually even Abby starts taking Mike’s advice on dating her neighbouring doctor.

   The movie rolls on with good enough humour until the moment every viewer in the theatre knows is going to happen – the scene where Mike and Abby fall in love.

   The movie ain’t that bad a watch after all. There are plenty of laughs to be had in the movie becausethe_ugly_truth_2 of which you can forgive the clichéd screenplay and actually give it a try. And also the movie had come at such a time where no other movie in town is remotely watchable.

   Give it a try if you have some free time.

Rating – √√ – neither bad nor great
