The Invention of Lying

"In a world where no one fibs, fiction doesn't exist and people take each other at their literal word, unsuccessful screenwriter Mark (Ricky Gervais) gains fame and fortune -- and maybe the girl of his dreams (Jennifer Garner) -- by saying things that aren't true. Gervais co-writes and co-directs this original comedy that co-stars Rob Lowe. Look for cameos by Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, Louis C.K. and Philip Seymour Hoffman." courtesy of netflix
I wasn't sure I was going to like this movie because sometimes Ricky Gervais movies are a little too dull for me (that english humour i guess) but this was actually pretty hilarious, and the cast is surprinsigly large, the story itself is hilarious. people dont just tell the truth, they are thinking outloud, and the idea that everyone just says what they feel and no one gets mad about it is really refreshing. because then i started thinking the first lie was probaby told to avoid anger or conflict (which is why most people lie in the first place) its a very fun idea - I'm going to add the trailer of the movie because I think it sums up everything I want to say. its just a good laugh movie. definitley worth watching! :)
