The premise behind The Invention of Lying caught my interest from the first commercial.  I even thought about seeing it in the theater.

It wasn’t until this past weekend that I saw it, renting the DVD from a local store, to watch while the snow fell.

It wasn’t as good as I had hoped it would be, but it was really enjoyable nevertheless.

The main flaw in this movie is that in a world where no one can lie, they apparently (according to the script writers) can’t refrain from telling people exactly what they’re thinking – even when no one asks.

Gervais, Garner and Lowe do good jobs as per usual.  I had never seen Louis C.K. prior to this flick, but he was entertaining.  There were also plenty of cameos in the film, so be on the lookout for that – especially the bartender.

I was happy I rented it, and I’d recommend this to just about anyone – unless you’re totally opposed to anything even remotely similar to a romantic comedy.
