Katherine Heigl Deserved Better Orgasms in The Ugly Truth
A lot has changed over the past decade and if you want solid cinematic proof of that look no further than The sad truth, now available on Netflix. The romantic comedy Katherine Heigl / Gerrard Butler was inspired by the boom in men who called themselves “Pickup Artists”. You see, the mid-2000s was a time when, for some strange reason, as a society we thought men’s opinions on relationships and advice to women were really worth listening to. LOL, us! Butler is playing the role of Mike, another one of those d-bags who tried to convince us that his abrasive, obnoxious, and offensive advice was actually charming or factual in any way. Heigl’s Abby is a morning show producer who is rightly disgusted with him, until she follows his advice on attracting a sexy doctor who seems to have it all on the side and maybe it works? Unfortunately for Abby, the sexy doctor doesn’t have everything, and she ends up softening / falling in love with Mike. Sigh.
But that’s not even the most disturbing part of this movie. Sure, it comes with a script whose heart was in the right place, but was probably confused by some studio executives who were sadly influenced by these so called silly artists of the time. We will therefore not go into the “Does The sad truth heist? ”argument because 2019 is a time when we realize that many of our favorite pop culture tunes just don’t hold up now that we’re a little more enlightened or at least aware of the problematic themes. offensive about this movie is that it prevents Abby from enjoying her own orgasms, and shame on you for that, The sad truth.
This movie’s most infamous orgasm comes (wink) during a restaurant scene, but you already know that because before you could even finish typing the words “The Ugly Truth” on YouTube (and I was looking for just the trailer), “The Ugly Truth Restaurant Scene” is suggested. Abby was supposed to have a date with Doctor Colin (Eric Winter) and at the last minute she slipped out of her cute white underwear and instead tried on the vibrant black underwear Mike gave her as a “gift” – and oh not for her, for her “bean.” Except there’s a knock on the door, and it’s Mike and his boss who come pick her up for a dinner with “company.” With absolutely NO free time, Abby is unable to get back to the right underwear and instead throws control in her purse over the underwear she is wearing. , there is so much more to unbox here that it’s not even worth getting rightly excited that no woman would dare never wear those black underwear under such a tight and immaculate dress. A serious fashion crime has been committed and it only gets worse from there.
Let’s go ahead and understand that this scene is meant to be comedic and look just past the fact that in the end, yes, she put on the underwear, but the trip to completion didn’t was technically not even the one she consented to. Because the remote control for the underwear does not just come out of his purse, but in the hands of a CHILD. Sure, it’s meant to be innocent or funny, but instead it looks CREEPY AF. As the child shakes the remote control and raises it to its highest level (he does “warm-up”, “paradise”, “ecstasy”, then “ecstasy”), Heigl is forced to cross her legs, to pretend to be enthusiastic. is for the ceviche and discusses the channel’s “new teaser campaign” next week, until the force of the orgasm makes her stand up and catch her breath. And while Mike clearly enjoys this show, Abby absolutely doesn’t. The feeling may be good, but the situation not. It turns out that, as if you were pretending to be having an orgasm, pretend to be do not to have one, it sucks too! To make him suppress his sexual pleasure is rude. If she’s having an orgasm she should have sex somewhere she can scream on rooftops (just, you know, be careful if you do it on a rooftop).
So that Abby is doing weird… okay? amused? by the fact that a child was playing with the remote control of his underwear, this is not how women should, or ultimately want, to experience orgasms. Have to hide what’s going on, reduce your pleasure and be in the company of “corporate” people? Yuck! What’s fun or sexy about all of this? Clearly, When Harry meets Sally is an inspiration for this tabletop display, but while Sally didn’t quite pull it off, she was having fun in the process. The exact opposite is true of our poor Abby here.
And that’s not even the only orgasm that robs Abby of her pleasure! A scene is added at the end of the film, after Mike confesses his feelings for her in a hot air balloon on a very romantic ride through a green screen, which finds them both in bed. We hear him moan and pretend, “Oh, you’re a god!” And when the lights come on, Mike sure is sweaty but Abby, well, a lot less. “Am I really that good or are you just faking it?” ” he asks. She laughs and says, “You will never know.” Okay, she’s laughing at him and teasing him here, I get it. But my beauty, you only joke with yourself if you are pretending. He clearly had a much more physically strenuous time during that frolic in the bag, but like, don’t be afraid to mess up that makeup and get yours for REAL too, Abby! Even a pickup would tell you that if you don’t put your fun first, why would anyone else? If Abby is in control of the rest of her life that much, she should also be in control of her damn orgasms.
