Movie Preview: Gervais, Garner, Fey in The Invention of Lying

According to Ricky Gervais's blog, J.J. Abrams has seen Gervais's movie The Invention of Lying and is raving about it. Whether Gervais is joking or not remains to be seen, but he writes:

J.J. Abrams (Star Trek director) watched The Invention of Lying and said it was one of his favourite films. I know I shouldn't care what people think — some people will like it, some will hate it, and some won't care either way. But the reason I'm so excited in this instance is that I think J.J. is one of the most exciting directors out there at the moment.

Well, that's a nice endorsement. The movie (previously titled This Side of the Truth) certainly does look interesting, and it's chock-full of fun people like Tina Fey, Jennifer Garner, Jonah Hill, Rob Lowe, and more. Of course, Gervais himself is also in the movie, as the central character who lives in a world in which everyone only ever tells the truth — always. The movie shows what happens when lies are introduced to such a world. Naturally, Gervais's character is the inventor of lying. The movie opens today. Check out the trailer below.

leighgill245 I am totally confused as to what you are trying to say! Like most actresses, she plays the best parts that she is offered. I don't think most actors are at a point where they say" I think I'll take this part to play up my "whatever" side! There just aren't enough (good) parts out there for them to be able to be to shape an "image". And yes, I think 13 going on 30 proved that she is an excellent comedic actress. I think she was afraid of being typecast as a strong kick but actress after Alias, so its good to see she is able to do other parts.

I luv this; it's so original and funny! I luv Ricky Gervais, Jennifer Garner, and Rob Lowe; although I don't like Tina Fey nor Jonah Hill. I especially luv the song they used; it's the same one from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind which gave me that same good, quirky feeling...
