4.5 A good film ( I'm not lying ) Quagmire1984 | 12/04/2011 | See all Quagmire1984's reviews (25) QUICK REVIEW:Funny, Intelligent and a fantastic original film. Written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Matthew Robinson. It's about a man named Mark (Gervais) who lives in a world where you can only tell the truth, Mark is a pathetic loser when it comes to his work and love life. One day he manages to tell a lie and as lying as not yet been invented he gets away with it no questions asked. Now Mark can lie he takes himself from zero to hero with some very funny consequences (like inventing god) The film also includes a very funny cameo scene between Stephen Merchant and Sean Williamson (Barry). It is a feel good movie that combines romance with comedy but in a way even the manliest of men can enjoy.SPECIAL FEATURESThe usual stuff: Additional scenes , A making of featurette, Outtakes etc. But what is excellent is a feature called "Meet Karl Pilkington" (who is a legend in my eyes lol) It is about Ricky Gervais giving him a part as an extra in the film (basically the life of an extra) and you get to hear him moan all day and get picked on by Gervais.
