The Ugly Truth

Katherine Heigl (Knocked Up, 27 Dresses) and Gerard Butler (PS I Love You, Law Abiding Citizen) star in this sexually unsophisticated romcom from writer/ director Robert Luketic (Monster-in-Law, Legally Blonde).

When a TV morning show's ratings fail to impress the suits, its producer Abby Richter (Heigl) finds herself having to welcome a new, and hopefully ratings-boosting, host - Mike Chadaway (Butler).

Trouble is, she's a control-freak perfectionist, while he's the chauvinistic former host of a freewheeling, late-night chat show, who's used to living in the moment. The two are destined from the start not to get along.

And so it proves. But when Abby falls for an attractive doctor (Eric Winter), she takes the questionable decision to follow Mike's dating advice.

Cue a succession of crude and, for Abby, humiliating set-pieces as she aims to snag her man...
