In a world where everyone can only tell the truth... This guy can lie.
Set in a world where the concept of lying doesn't exist, a loser changes his lot when he invents lying and uses it to get ahead.

I like the idea of the movie and it's really interesting, but it would been better if people were telling the truth normally, most of them looked like robots talking. It was almost like they couldn't lie and they had no feeling at all. If the characthers told the truth like normal people, for me, it would been so much better.

I liked this movie much more than I expected. I believe the low rating here and on IMDb is due to angry religious people that don't like the atheism concept thrown in their faces.
Plot is a little weird, but is good acted and directed. It is funny indeed. At least a 7 is well deserved.

BTW: I did not for one second believe that love connection between Ricky Gervais and Jennifer Garner. There was no chemistry between them whatsoever. In that aspect did the movie fail miserably. Enough to give it a weak sauce.
