Katherine Heigl was on the money when she called out Knocked Up for being sexist, a movie in which every woman is an emotional, irrational, fun-killing harpy. However, Heigl then made this mess, possibly the most hypocritical movie in Hollywood history. The Ugly Truth is a taming of the shrew fantasy where yet another lonely career woman finds herself by being dominated by a chauvinistic man. The worst part is that Heigl served as a producer on the film, so this time she had no one to blame but herself.
