Mike Chadway: Now, we have to teach you flirting.
Abby Richter: I know how to flirt.
Mike Chadway: You know how to flirt. "Oh, my name's Abby and I love reading Tolstoy. I also love cats, gardening, and romantic picnics." I don't think so.

Witty, funny, fun!
2 July 2012 | by ipekmineSee all my reviews

The Ugly Truth is a fun movie with a very good flow, a well-chosen pair to reflect the leading characters successfully and many funny (even hilarious) parts that make you laugh out loud. It lasts about 1 and a half hour only, and still manages to deliver the plot in its entirety, make sense and certainly entertain you. Almost each and every dialogue between Abby (Katherine Heigl) and Mike (Gerard Butler) is filled with adult jokes or implies sexual content, but it achieves to keep it at a good quality and does not go down to a cheap level or end up in boring clichés. I for one would recommend it to all those looking for a light, fun movie anyday, just to have a good laugh (or two).
