Theater Thursday

Every Thursday I feature a movie that I really love. Usually it's something from the 1980's or even the 90's but recently I've found some great new movies worth mentioning. Enjoy this week's edition of...
This week's featured movie is The Ugly Truth. 

I hadn't seen The Ugly Truth until a few weeks ago and I loved it. I thought it was a really cute romantic comedy. The Ugly Truth follows the life of Abby Richter (Katherine Heigl), who's a morning show producer in Sacramento, California. When the rates of her news program aren't able to compete with everything else on tv and she faces getting cancelled, her boss brings in a new person to spice things up. 

The boss brings in Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler), who's been hosting a late night show on public access called The Ugly Truth. During his show, he lays out the ugly truth about what men think and why women are alone, etc. Instantly, Abby and Mike to do not get along. She believes that everything he says is sexist and untrue. Mike instantly wants to show her he's right and challenges her to follow his rules of dating. 

Since Abby is interested in her new neighbor she figures she'll give it a try to prove him wrong. In the mean time her and Mike start getting closer, the ratings start to rise and so does the heat between them. 

If you like comedies and romance. Check this one out. It's surprisingly refreshing.
