What I mean is that, men, you will enjoy this cookie cutter lookin’ chick flick that you probably will get dragged to this weekend. After bringing your chick to see Star Trek, Transformers, Public Enemies, ya know, a slew of testosterone driven flicks, you can walk into this one unafraid.
Starring Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl, the commercials would lead you to believe that;
Abby Richter is 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, a hardcore TV personality who promises to spill the ugly truth on what makes men and women tick. [Official Sony Pictures Synopsis]
But here is the kick, we got ourselves an R rating! Making no nudity, and no blood and guts, BUT, deliciously filthy banter between alpha male Butler and even some beatifully carved saphires (gems) out of the usually uptight and notoriously bigmouthed Heigl. Nothing you haven’t seen before, but a nice chemistry and great dialogue make this film rich with male friendly romance. Butler from his “300” fame is transitioning well (God knows why?) into romance movies, and in “Truth” plays Chadway with a badass, wily grit with nothing metro about himself. Except that he tells you the ugly truth(pun intended), guys want pussy and thats it. Girls want movie love, and that doesn’t exist…..until!!!!!!!! SPOILER ALERT……Uhhh I’m not sayin what happens because you can guess…
So don’t be scared, you will leave the theater feeling like your girl just learned a lesson in reality, and thats exactly how I felt. You may no longer need to beat around the bush, she’ll know that all a man really wants is to beat on it!!
Oh, this review is delightly ripe with shtick!
B- Would have been an A- if Heigl showed some more skin for once !
