trailer break: ‘The Ugly Truth’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Oh god, she’s one of those, isn’t she? Background checks before a first date. Assuming something a guy wrote in his online profile is the entire totality of his personality and tastes.

Oh god, he’s one of those, isn’t he? Women are fatties, unless they aren’t, which is when he likes them on top.

These are not charming people.

Ugh. Who writes these movies? Opposites don’t really attract, not in real life. And in the movies, it’s just super, super, super annoying to get saddled with characters like these two, no matter how charming Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler may be onscreen in general, and know that they’re going to fall madly for each other by the end of the movie. Because we never, ever get the followup of a few months later, when they’re ready to kill each other.

Ah, it turns out this one is actually written by three women: Nicole Eastman, and the team of Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith, who long ago wrote the delightful Legally Blonde, but more recently are responsible for such tripe as The House Bunny and Ella Enchanted.


The Ugly Truth opens in the U.S. on July 24 and the U.K. on August 7.
