The Ugly Truth: Katherine Heigl Walks Among Us
Following the grand tradition of late 70s television dramedy
, the protagonist of the new movie Eight is Enough , played by The Ugly Truth Katherine Heigl, works for a fictional news agency in Sacramento, California. In Eight is Enough the fictional news agency was the newspaper The Sacramento Register, while in The Ugly Truth it's a fictional news channel.
Surprised? I was when I heard the news today on
Jeffrey Callison's radio show , broadcast by our local Insight NPR affiliate, Capital Public Radio. But apparently the dogged reporters at had already broken the story, asking someone promoting the movie if Good Day Sacramento Good Day Sacramento was the inspiration for the film's plot. They were joking (sorry, I couldn't find the video), but there were also rumors that the characters in the movie played by Cheryl Hines and John Michael Higgins were based on real-life retired married co-anchors Dave Walker and Lois Hart. Heck, while we're at it, couldn't Gerard Butler's character, a chauvinistic media personality, be based on Rush Limbaugh, who got his start in Sacramento?
The movie's getting mixed reviews, so I'll probably wait till it comes out on DVD. Unless I hear next that
Deirdre Fitzpatrick is in it . . .
