The Invention of Lying Reviews
It's a fairly simple premise and often those kind of movies can have make for surprising well-crafted stories. After all you don't need overly complicated plots to tell a great story. Unfortunately, this movie can't even get a simple concept right.
It's just two hours of pointless meandering coupled with some really ham-fisted morals and ideas. Really, there's no religion because no one can lie? Really?
Not only that, it shows that even without manipulation and deceit, we're still a pretty terrible lot.
I can't tell a lie, and the truth is this is one trip to honesty-vile I won't be taking again soon.
Weird, funny and feel good, just goes to show that lies can get you a long way for he greater good or bad.
* Film becomes less funny when you realise that "not lying" manifests itself as Truth Tourettes
* Ricky Gervais is great as the leading man, taking you on the journey of the character perfectly.
