Gerard Butler scores a role as a Ukrainian goal keeper. Also, Nazis are there.
Hot on the heels of the really rather good Coriolanus, Gerard Butler is once again disappointing his public with the startlingly dull Machine Gun Preacher. But is there really a talented actor behind the gun-toting beardy meathead? We think so, and if you gather round closer we’ll tell you why…
Wow, it’s like The Ugly Truth never happened.
Take a romatically challenged, cynical workaholic and cross her with a victim of heartbreak who thinks with what’s in his pants. What do you get? True love apparently. Boy meets girl. Girl hates boy. Boy wins girl over. It’s nothing we’ve never seen before – The Ugly Truth is your typical boring battle of the sexes ‘romantic comedy’. Yet another sickly film to leave us with a floating outlook on relationships. And that’s the ugly truth.
