The Ugly Truth

RT Freshness: 12%
Critic Consensus: “Despite the best efforts of Butler and Heigl, The Ugly Truth suffers from a weak script that relies on romantic comedy formula, with little charm or comedic payoff.”

Plot: A couple who recently lost an unborn child decide to adopt and find the seemingly perfect Esther. But it’s soon revealed that Esther has a dark side.
RT Freshness: 50%
Critic Consensus: “While it has moments of dark humor and the requisite scares, Orphan fails to build on its interesting premise and degenerates into a formulaic, sleazy horror/thriller.”
