The Invention of Lying 2009

description written by member Zara:

In a world where no one has ever lied, fiction does not exist and movies consist of actors simply reading historical facts, unsuccessful screenwriter Mark (Ricky Gervais) gains incredible personal power as he begins intentionally saying things that are not true. Gervais and Matthew Robinson co-write and co-direct this hilarious comedy that also stars Jason Bateman, Jennifer Garner, Rob Lowe, Tina Fey and Jonah Hill.

Release Date:October 2nd, 2009

The Invention of Lying Movie Review by Shannon (5/10/2012)

A what if story about a culture similar to ours except it isn't possible for anyone to lie (or even hold off on giving information to questions). . . until the character played by Ricky Gervais shows up. The imaginary culture says a lot to the audience about their culture. How and why we lie and the repercussions in being...

If I'm going to shuck any of my cynicism and play into the telling the truth factor that those people in the movie go through, I'll say...

The Invention of Lying Movie Review by Lloyd (10/17/2009)

I saw this movie in a snowstorm recently while visiting in Edmonton AB Canada. The movie is a bit long, it is nice to see the great phillip seymour hoffman in a bit role and tina fey as well, what is with jennifer garner's lips I still wonder to this day, and man is she skinny, typical of today's young female actresses. ...

The Invention of Lying Movie Review by Martin (10/16/2009)

"The Invention of lying" has all the ingredients to being the best movie ever. Theres an origanal idea, a top comedy actor in the lead, and there are even moments that are touching and bring a tear to the eye in this, but it all comes off like a mere just above average movie.

Basicly, in a world where everyone tells the...

The Invention of Lying Movie Review by Jarrod (10/3/2009)

'The Invention of Lying' has a brilliant premise; Ricky Gervais is Mark, a man who lives in a bland world where everyone tells the truth, except for him. He discovers this when he goes to the bank, and requests $800 from his account, when he knows he only has $300 available for withdrawal.

The teller believes him and...
