After KNOCKED UP and 27 DRESSES, Katherine Heigl continues her reign as queen of the romantic comedies with this film from director Robert Luketic (LEGALLY BLONDE, 21). Katherine Heigl is Abby, a TV producer in Sacramento, California. Gerard Butler (300, ROCKNROLLA) is Mike Chadway, a local anchorman who hosts 'The Ugly Truth', a sassy show about relationships. After the umpteenth failed date, Abby finds herself disillusioned and upset in front of the telly, watching, bizarrely enough, Mike's programme. Outraged by the man's cynicism, she calls into the studio and starts arguing with him on-air only to find out, the day after, that her network intends to hire Mike to revitalize Abby's show's meagre shares. The two have many difficulties getting along, but eventually end up calling a truce when Abby meets her handsome new neighbour Colin. Mike offers to help her 'conquer' him, promising that, if his plan fails, he will leave the show. Quite surprisingly everything seems to be going by the book, but is Abby being truthful to herself or is she just acting a part? And will Mike be able to fight back his growing feelings for the beautiful but demanding producer?
