The battle of the sexes heats up in this romantic-comedy following Abby Richter (Knocked Up's Katherine Heigl) - a romantically challenged morning show producer whose search for Mr Perfect has left her hopelessly single. Abby has a rude awakening when her bosses team her with chauvinist Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler), a hardcore TV personality who promises to spill the ugly truth on what makes men and women tick. More

Variety

An arch, contrived, entirely predictable romantic comedy assembled with sufficient audience-friendly elements to put it over as both a good girls' night attraction and a date-night lure raunchy enough to leave couples in the right mood afterward.

Surprisingly sharp and sassy, this romcom for grown-ups is like many a romantic dalliance – the thrill of the chase is more fun than the catch.

A cynical, clumsy, aptly titled attempt to cross the female-oriented romantic comedy with the male-oriented gross-out comedy that is interesting on several levels, none having to do with cinema.

The comedy bogs down in relentless predictability and the puzzling overuse of naughty words.

Hollywood Reporter

A romantic comedy depends, of course, on the chemistry between the leads, and here the film is more successful. Both Heigl and Butler find the appeal in very flawed characters.

It's not as risqué as it wishes it were, nor as likable as it should be. Butler's rarely been better-cast, but the material's too patchy to support him .
