The Invention of Lying review

Mark Bellison (Ricky Gervais) becomes unemployed and gets evicted by his landlord. He falls for a wealthy attractive girl Anna McDoogles (Jennifer Garner), who then gets engaged with a good looking Brad Kessler (Rob Lowe). The love of Mark and Anna just wasn't authentic for me, to the point of ruining a wedding in church. So many dragging scenes coupled with a realistic approach of how Mark and Anna end up together. The Invention of Lying didn't appeal to me because of its execution, lack of natural humor despite its popular cast and the idea of using a lie to become rich and famous. it makes you ponder after watching this picture, does it mean that the first man to lie was even rewarded?

Fantastic

This is one of those rare cases where someone being original actually wasn't them doing anything odd and avant gard they could in order to come off simply as 'original' but was actually extraordinarily good. The concept, while it might seem odd and far fetched at first is excellent. This almost feels like a completely unexplored genre. I really had thought that I had seen enough movies by now that nothing much would really come along and be as completely refreshing as this was. The amount of detail in the story devoted to a 'world without lies' really shows us just how much we do lie everyday and don't even know it. Originality to me is now synonymous with crap as it is usually used to describe something done for the sole purpose of it's originality and as we all should know by now,...
