The Ugly Truth Movie Trailer #2

The Ugly Truth

Columbia Pictures has released the trailer for the Robert Luketic (21, Legally Blonde) directed romantic comedy The Ugly Truth. Katherine Heigl plays Abby Richter, a romantically challenged morning show producer whose search for Mr. Perfect has left her hopelessly single.  She’s in for a rude awakening when her bosses team her with Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler), a hardcore TV personality who promises to spill the ugly truth on what makes men and women tick.

Basically, we have your paint by numbers romantic comedy, complete with the cute-yet-somewhat-bitchy female lead who is able to change the asshole-yet-”extremely hot” male lead into a somewhat like-able caring guy by the time the credits roll. And normally I’d just write this film off, but the screenwriters involved wrote 10 Things I Hate About You, which was one of my favorite high school romantic comedies of all time.

At ShoWest, Sony screened a scene from the film in which through a series of convoluted yet somewhat believable events, Heigl’s character ends up wearing remote controlled vibrating panties to a business meeting. The remote falls out of Heigl’s purse, and finds its way into the hands of a child at one of the other tables, who begins to play with it. The result is an orgasmic comedic restaurant scene which makes the infamous scene from When Harry Met Sally look like a Disney movie. Listen, I’m not saying the film is going to be hilarious, but the scene they showed was pretty damn funny. The trailer on the other hand, not so much. You can watch the trailer below, and tell me what you think in the comments.

The Ugly Truth Movie Trailer

From Robert Luketic, the director of 21, Monster-in-Law, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! and Legally Blonde, comes a new romantic comedy called The Ugly Truth. Katherine Heigl plays Abby Richter, a romantically challenged morning show producer whose search for Mr. Perfect has left her hopelessly single.  She’s in for a rude awakening when her bosses team her with Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler), a hardcore TV personality who promises to spill the ugly truth on what makes men and women tick.

Basically, we have your paint by numbers romantic comedy, complete with the cute-yet-somewhat-bitchy female lead who is able to change the asshole-yet-”extremely hot” male lead into a somewhat like-able caring guy by the time the credits roll. It’s your basic female wish-fulfillment fantasy.  But who knows, it could be different. The screenwriters involved wrote 10 Things I Hate About You, which was one of my favorite high school romantic comedies of all time. Watch the trailer below, and tell me what you think in the comments.

21 Movie Trailer

21

I first read the book Bringing Down the House a couple years back, and knew instantly that Hollywood would make a movie about this real life tale of how six M.I.T. Students took Vegas for Millions. The feature film version is titled 21 and stars Across the Universe‘s Jim Sturgess in the lead, Kevin Spacey as the teacher/leader, in addition to Kate Bosworth, Laurence Fishburne, and Aaron Yoo. Sure, director Robert Luketic (Legally Blonde, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!, Monster-in-Law) doesn’t instill confidence, but it’s hard to mess up a heist film (although Oceans 12 accomplished that feat). The new movie trailer makes the movie look very fun. Check out he trailer after the jump.
