The Ugly Truth

A quick review of The Ugly Truth, a slightly patchy rom-com with an interesting premise that fades in the final third. Gerard Butler is a boorish, blokey TV presenter hiding a sensitive soul, while Katherine Heigl is, er, Katherine Heigl, a role she seems to be playing regularly these days.

I quite liked the film. There is a cringingly embarrassing scene involving vibrating underwear, which you kind of know is going to be a car crash, but you can't tear your eyes away. There's a bit of crudity and a few swearwords. But generally it's a straightforward rom-com. You can see where it's heading from a few minutes in and there's no twists to surprise you.

Jongudmund's rating: 6/10 Wait for it to tip up on Movies on Demand. Or Lovefilm it. (If you're the kind of person who Lovefilms, eh Jo?)
