The Ugly Truth Trailer Now Online
Rom-com with Butler and Heigl

27 November 2008  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: The Ugly Truth

The first trailer for Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl’s rom-com, The Ugly Truth, has just gone online, and with it comes something of a surprise: the movie will be rated R for sexual content and language. And maybe, just maybe, Gerry Butler’s American accent.

In what seems like your standard rom-com set-up, Heigl plays a TV producer who take control of a show called The Ugly Truth, a no- nonsense self-help show presented by Butler’s boorish, unreconstructed chauvinist.

It’s hate at first sight, yadda yadda yadda, Heigl wants to take him down, he wants to take down her particulars, then she falls for a surgeon and they cut a deal: Butler will give her advice that will seal the deal. If it doesn’t work, he’ll quit the show. Cue hilarious hijinks that might – just might – bring our gorgeous pairing together.

So far, so conventional – but although the trailer for the movie, directed by Robert Luketic, is relatively laugh-free, there’s still enough hints that Heigl and Butler could generate significant chemistry. Heigl, of course, is the new queen of rom-com and Butler is charisma personified – although, with the best will in the world, we’d advise him to stick with his own Scottish accent, rather than wandering through all 50 states in one sentence.

And then, of course, there’s the intriguing R-rating, which suggests that this could get much raunchier than the trailer suggests. Let’s hope so, for this trailer hasn’t blown us away. Fnar fnar, etc. etc.

Well this is a cure for insomnia
King Leonidas and that broad does seem to click but the whole thing looks the typical American tedious rom-com. More

It Looks Good.
Okay, so it might not be everyone's taste and sounds like we have heard it all before but I think it looks good and funny. Katherine Hegil suits rom-coms, thats her forte. I am looking forward to seeing this, though it's not my type of movie but I'm going to see what happens and if the couple really do get together. More
