    Toss this ugly-ass crap to the curb, along with the other multiplex garbage, and see a romance that gets it right. I'm talking "(500) Days of Summer." show more

    Despite its appealing stars, The Ugly Truth is a charmless romantic comedy. show more

    Wall Street Journal

    If the movie had even a moment of freshness or wit, one honest laugh. It doesn't--and that's the ugly truth. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Screenwriters Nicole Eastman and the "Blonde" team of Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith provide dialogue that has the propriety of the locker room. show more

    A movie without a moment of truth to be found. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    A romantic comedy depends, of course, on the chemistry between the leads, and here the film is more successful. Both Heigl and Butler find the appeal in very flawed characters. show more

    The Ugly Truth serves up yet another tightly wound career woman, ripe for chopping up, tenderizing and ravishing by an alpha male who knows what's good for her. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    The only thing that differentiates it from far too many other uninspired rom-coms is that some of the material is funny and there is an occasional edge to the repartee. Beyond that, however, it's a cookie-cutter movie, and the cookies are pretty stale. show more

    The comedy bogs down in relentless predictability and the puzzling overuse of naughty words. show more

    This was probably the funniest movie ever.... I don't know how you say it's not... Instead of being a complete chick flick it actually had some crude humor in it which made it that much better... Good for both guys and girls
