I was able to watch this last saturday and I must say that I enjoyed the movie. Well, one big factor was Gerard Butler! I just love him (especially after watching him in “300”).
It’s a romantic story about a local tv show producer, Abby, and a man named Mike, who is host of a segment, “Ugly Truth”. Abby, after coming from a disastrous date, just so happened to watch Mike on TV. She ended up calling him, and arguing with him over the air regarding their thoughts on relationships.
The next day, the station owner hired mike so he could help save Abby’s show from being cancelled. They hated each other.
Finally, Abby met the man of his dreams. She and Mike reached an agreement. The agreement is, Mike will teach Abby how to get the man of his dreams. If he is successful, Abby will work with him. Otherwise, Mike will quite the show.
It worked! Let me share with you what Mike taught Abby, girls might find this useful (hehe!):
- Don’t Criticize
- Laugh a Lot!
- Guys love to visualize – so look your best!
- Don’t talk about your problems
- Guys love long-haired girls
Somehow, Abby realized that the guy of her dreams learned to love her because of pretentions (religiously following Mike’s lessons). So they broke up. In the end, Mike and Abby fell in love with each other. How? You have to watch it! I don’t want to give too much spoilers (thought I kinda shared the whole story already :P)
Great lesson taught here. Yes, there are effective ways to get the man of your dreams but will you be happy by pretending to be that perfect girl?
My Rating for The Ugly Truth: 4 out of 5 stars.
