The Invention of Lying

The Invention of Lying [2009]

Director: Ricky Gervais, Matthew Robinson

Starring:Ricky Gervais, Jennifer Garner
IMDB Rating: 6.6
My Rating: 8.0

A movie resides in a world where everybody tells the truth, until a guy discovered 'lie'. There is absolutely no lies in this world, so much that the word 'truth' does not exist. And then how the world unfolds in front of this man.

Having watched this, I would like to say kudos to the makers of this film. It's original, funny and profound. This has got to be the most original comedy movie I have seen in a long time. Although the movie suggest that religion and god is fake and a lie, and is probably going to be offensive to some people. But I find the idea to be rather mind bending and 'Inventive'. This movie may not be your funniest, most entertaining movie, but it will surely be one that is going to be in your head for a very long time.
