The Ugly Truth

Low-minded relationship comedy in which a romantically inept TV producer (Katherine Heigl) enlists the help of the boorish new star (Gerard Butler) of her morning news program - a shock jock who proclaims the supposed ugly truth that all men are sex-obsessed animals - to inveigle her gentlemanly neighbor (Eric Winter) into a relationship. As directed by Robert Luketic, the formulaic odd-couple proceedings feature a relentless barrage of raunchy humor.

Watch out for: rief graphic premarital sexual activity, fleeting rear nudity, pervasive sexual humor and references, much rough and crude language, and a few uses of profanity.

Rated: USCCB: O; MPAA: R.
