The Invention of Lying

(99 min) From Ricky Gervais, the award-winning creator and star of the original BBC series "The Office" and HBO's "Extras," comes the new romantic comedy "The Invention of Lying."

"The Invention of Lying" takes place in an alternate reality in which lying--even the concept of a lie--does not exist. Everyone--from politicians to advertisers to the man and woman on the street--speaks the truth and nothing but the truth with no thought of the consequences. But when a down-on-his-luck loser named Mark (Gervais) suddenly develops the ability to lie, he finds that dishonesty has its rewards. In a world where every word is assumed to be the absolute truth, Mark easily lies his way to fame and fortune. But lies have a way of spreading, and Mark begins to realize that things are getting a little out of control when some of his tallest tales are being taken as, well, gospel. With the entire world now hanging on his every word, there is only one thing Mark has not been able to lie his way into: the heart of the woman he loves.

    Fascinating, funny, provocative move. Kristen, as also, was a wonderful hostess.

    It was good, I arrived late so there were a lot of people and it was a little hard to find seats on a monday, but i cant complain since it was just one dollar.
    The people in the meetup group were very kind and social. The theatre is not totally quite like an actual movie theatre because it has a restaurant and people order things and the waiters and waitresses bring the food.

    Can't beat the price! The movie was only mildly amusing, but Jennifer Garner is a hottie. LOL
