Ricky Gervais' 'The Invention of Lying': Truly optimistic?

Posted on

Ricky Gervais is the kind of comedy genius whose work inspires constant confidence: Is there anything he could write that I wouldn’t see? Nope, there is not. The trailer for his upcoming movie The Invention of Lying has finally hit the Internet, and while it doesn’t exactly set my soul on fire, I remain hopeful.

Gervais, Tina Fey, Louis CK, Jonah Hill, Rob Lowe, Christopher Guest, Jennifer Garner, Martin Starr — with the exception of my parents, is there anyone I love not in this movie?

What do you think, PopWatchers? Are you on board for Lying, or will you just stick to your box sets of The Office and Extras?
