Butler and Heigl do have great comic chemistry even if the film has so many cliches of every other guy-girl battle we've ever seen on screen. But, that is where Butler and Heigl's charm manages to save the day and makes The Ugly Truth worth watching.
We hope that Butler and Heigl reunite someday in another project that can further their talents and screen chemistry even further.
