(mbc.net) Abby Richter's (Katherine Heigl) talk show is in a ratings slump, prompting executives to hire Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler) as a show correspondent. Chadway is known for his blunt, chauvinistic dating advice that primarily involves inflating a man's ego.  Abby is disgusted by Mike's presence, but nonetheless makes a bet with him: if his tactics can help her win a next-door neighbor's heart, she will accept him as a cohost.  If Mike's tips fail however, he must leave the show.

Mike agrees with the proposition and his tricks prove effective, but there's one problem: Abby has fallen for the wrong man.

The Ugly Truth was nominated for two Teen Choice Awards.  The picture earned $205 million at theaters, more than five times its budget.
