Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 09/17/2009
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The film is loads of fun and boasts an all star comic cast....Their spirited interaction with this clever script is worth the price of admission alone."
USA Today - 10/02/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "The film takes off with all pistons firing, fusing a more accessible IDIOCRACY with the absurdity of THE LIFE OF BRIAN."
Chicago Sun-Times - 09/30/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "In its amiable, quiet, PG-13 way, THE INVENTION OF LYING is a remarkably radical comedy."
A.V. Club - 10/01/2009
"Between laughs, LYING uses it skewed reality to comment on our own need to create useful fictions to wallpaper over the abyss."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/09/2009
"[T]he performances are razor sharp. And the ideas in this movie are, no kidding, big." -- Grade: B+

Product Description:

It's no surprise that Ricky Gervais would be able to assemble a cast of funnymen (and funnywomen) for his directorial debut, but THE OFFICE star truly impresses with this list: Jennifer Garner, Louis C.K., Tina Fey, Christopher Guest, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jonah Hill. THE INVENTION OF LYING stars Gervais (who co-directed and co-wrote the script with Matthew Robinson) as a man living in a world where no one tells lies. When he discovers that he doesn't have to always tell the truth, things begin to change with inevitably hilarious results.
