The Truth About The Ugly Truth

"I'll be honest here. I bought this movie for two main reasons: one, because I knew that Gerard Butler was in it, and two because I was semi-interested in watching it, not really knowing exactly what to expect. After I bought it and before I sat down to watch it, I decided to check out some reviews on amazon and other websites to see what I was in for. It appeared as though a lot of reviews were mentioning the fact that it is very raunchy. Normally, this would deter me from viewing such a movie. Even after having read some of the reviews, I was still at least somewhat unsure of what exactly to expect. I went ahead and watched the movie. After having seen it now, I can kind of see where some people were coming from in terms of their opinions and what not of the plotline. It definitely wasn't the best movie I've ever seen, but I wasn't exactly expecting it to fall into that category. It wasn't necessarily as bad as some people are saying. There were a few fleeting moments that were enjoyable to watch, most notably the very end. This is one of those movies that I honestly probably would not sit down and watch all the way through a second time. It's more the kind of movie that you'd pop in if you had like absolutely nothing else to do and you don't mind watching a movie that at times skews the male and female perspectives of the truth when it comes to dating and relationships. Katherine Heigl does an okay job in the movie, but it wasn't exactly what you'd call an Oscar-worthy performance. Gerard Butler was charming at times and a little funny and was the only reason that I wasn't bored while watching the movie. All things considered, I'd call this an okay movie--decent, but not great."
