The battle of the sexes heats up in THE UGLY TRUTH, a smart, sexy comedy about men, women and the giant chasm that stands between the ways we each think about, fantasize about and try to seduce the other.
Katherine Heigl (KNOCKED UP) and Gerard Butler (300) throw sparks as two co-workers destined to despise one another. She's out to find a sophisticated dream partner. He's on a mission to tell women to get real and admit that men have just one thing on their minds. But when he decides to help her get what she wants, they both learn something unexpected about how powerfully even the most defiant opposites attract.
Abby Richter (Heigl) is an ambitious morning talk show producer, She prides herself on being able to find an instant solution to any problem that comes her way with the exception of her own unhappily single status. When it comes to dating, the always-in-control Abby has a flawless track record of failure.
When her show slumps in the ratings, Abby is forced to team with the newly recruited special correspondent Mike Chadway (Butler), a man who couldn't push more of her buttons. His "The Ugly Truth" segment promises to spill the beans on what makes men really tick. But his outrageously racy, gleefully chauvinistic, "shock jock" style rubs Abby in all the wrong ways and to make matters worse, becomes an instant ratings bonanza, sealing his network status.
Then Abby meets her neighbour Colin (Eric Winter), who's a single doctor! He's everything Mike Chadway isn't -suave, polite, not remotely into jello wrestling - and this time, Abby doesn't want to blow it. She hates to admit it, but she needs Mike's insight into the male mind to make the right moves. Now, as Mike coaches Abby and Abby puts Mike's provocative seduction theories to the test, they are both about to discover an ironic truth: as different as we might be, men and women share some of our most secret feelings in common.
