Katherine Heigl, Gerard Butler to Star in The Ugly Truth

Heigl and Gerard Team Up For Romantic Comedy

The basics:
Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler will star together in The Ugly Truth, which will center on "a romantically challenged morning show producer (Heigl) who is reluctantly embroiled by her chauvinistic correspondent (Butler) in a series of outrageous tests to prove his theories on relationships and help her find love."

It sounds . . . kind of ugly.
There's a successful woman whose life isn't complete until she finds a man and she turns to a chauvinistic dude for advice. This sounds totally less sexist than Knocked Up, Katherine Heigl. Surely these "outrageous tests" won't be humiliating at all.

Though there is some good news . . .
The Ugly Truth will reunite the creative team behind Legally Blonde: director Robert Luketic and writers Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith. I pretty much love Legally Blonde so this is encouraging.

What do you think of The Ugly Truth? Does it have potential? Will you probably still see it no matter what because Gerard Butler is in it? Discuss.
