The Ugly Truth: The Art of Laughter - A Making of Hilarious Proportions

Synopsis: Bonus feature for the film 'The Ugly Truth' (2009).
Genre: Short



You change your mind

Like a girl changes clothes

Yeah, you PMS

Like a bitch

I would know

And you over-think

Always speak cryptically

I should know

That you're

no good for me

'Cause you're hot

Then you're cold

You're yes

Then you're no

You're in

Then you're out

You're up

Then you're down

You're wrong

When it's right

It's black

And it's white

We fight, we break up

We kiss, we make up

Are you alert?

Okay, well tell them...

But you don't really

Want to go


You're yes

Then you're no

You're in

Then you're out

I'll be there in about

Okay, thanks. Bye.


We used to be

Just like twins

So in synch

- Morning, Freddy.

Morning, Abby.

- You look awfully pretty today.

- Oh, is it that bad in there?

- Good morning. We got problems.

- Morning.

There are no problems, Joy,

only solutions.

The traffic camera is down

and we have no B-roll

for our traffic segment.

- That is a problem.

- Yeah.

Call Matt at Media Lab.

He's got some Skycams

and he owes me.

- Where are all my weathermen?

- Right here.

- [MAN]:

- Hello.

Thank you all for coming.

You guys look great.

Thanks for being here. Good.

Is there a reason

they're all overweight?

If they get

the forecast wrong,

research shows people

are more willing

to forgive a fat guy.

Abby, I hate to do this to you,

but I don't think that

I can work with her anymore.

It's bad enough I have

to take her criticism at home.

I'm not gonna

do it on the air.

- A man can only endure so much.

- Larry, you are not a man,

you are a newsman.

And newsmen are not defined

by the easy times,

they're defined

by the hard times.

Can you imagine

Ted Koppel or Tom Brokaw

working with their

wives as co-anchors? No.

Because they

couldn't handle it.

But you.

You, my friend,

have balls the size

of Volkswagens.

Don't think

I haven't noticed.

I only thought of them

as blue of late.

But you're right.

They're quite sizeable.

But not disproportionately


I like to think of them

as aesthetically pleasing.

Yeah, I think

I made my point.

- Are you kidding me right now?

- Josh, nobody in Sacramento

gives a crap about

the extinction rate

of the Brazilian slug worm.

It's not newsworthy.

All right. But knowing which

celebutante is in rehab

is of vital importance?

You know, the sound

of your voice makes...

Okay. He is trying to kill me.

- He knows I can't eat crab.

- It's Crab Rangoon.

Who doesn't eat Crab Rangoon?

Oh, my God. Does anybody

see this? Is that a hive?


Looks like syphilis to me.

You wouldn't know

what syphilis looks like

if it weren't for my story

on hot celebrity STDs.


- [MAN]:
Stand by to go to three.

- [ROCCO]:
Yeah, so some...

Cacciatore gets mushrooms,

garlic. Exactly.

- Yeah. Put the mushrooms in.

All right.

And whatever amount

of garlic you want.

- [LARRY]:

- [ROCCO]:
Can't have enough garlic.


You can.

I certainly can.

Do it every night.

I got a nice,

big spoon for you.


Excellent. Thanks.

- Here you go.

- Mm.

- Mm!

- That good?

I have to say, Rocco,

this is the best chicken

cacciatore I've ever tasted.

I knew you'd like it.

It's duck cacciatore, actually.

- [CLIFF]:
Oh, no.

- Did he just say "duck"?

And it's a great

alternative to chicken.

It kind of tastes

just like chicken, right?

- Mm-hm.

- Duck, like "quack, quack" duck?

Get ready to an early break.


- Whoa, duck.

- Yeah.

Man, we're a

chicken household.
