Movie Review – The Invention of Lying (Netflix)


Movie Blurb:

A comedy set in a world where no one has ever lied, until a writer seizes the opportunity for personal gain.            

My Review:



Somewhat basic characters, but intriguing and entertaining.



Not the most entertaining plot from a bird’s eye view, but this one really grew on me. The more I watched, the more I liked it.



Flow is pretty good. Seamless for the most part.

Overall Impression

Fun fact, I found this movie on Netflix and thought it was new. When I found out it came out in 2009, I had a “you coulda had a V8” moment.

The characters in this movie were simple, but I couldn’t take my eyes off of them. I’m not the biggest fan of Gervais or C.K., but I love Lowe, Garner, and Fey, so that worked out really well for me. I loved all the laughs in this movie.

Plot, like the characters, was simple, but again, entertaining. I liked this parallel universe where almost nobody could lie and thought it was a great unique concept.

In the end, I really enjoyed this one. Definitely worth a watch!
