August is often the time when last minute comedies come out to the theaters.  The Ugly Truth came out just before that time.  Yet for the most part it's quite an interesting film.  In spite of some of its flaws, we can look past them and appreciate the movie for what we get in and of itself.        Katherine Heigl plays Abby.  A shrewd, uptight, control freak of a woman.  She's very efficient in her job as a producer of a morning news cast.  …

There's also some good laughs related to "shock jocks" in the media and how they often say things many of us are scared to admit. There were some stupid scenes (the orgasm belt comes to mind) …

I'm an avid watcher and fan of Romantic comedies, but lately I've been feeling like there aren't any good ideas left in the genre. Well I'm happy to say that The Ugly Truth is a breath of fresh air in the long running and overly used Romantic Comedy genre.                The Ugly Truth is not Rom Com greatness but it does come pretty close to it . It holds up nicely under the raunchy undertones and the suggestive humor ,and then somewhere in between …
