The Invention of Lying

PhotobucketPhotobucketContemptible critique presents an alternate world in which people unerringly tell the truth, save for one writer who learns to lie for his own personal gain. Schizophrenic movie starts out as nasty insult comedy, develops into an atheistic screed, and then lapses into a bland rom-com by the film’s end. According to the script, apparently when people must tell the truth, they become superficial and abusive. Despite this, our protagonist, Mark Bellison inexplicably spends the entire film pursuing a seemingly brainless and shallow love interest without any shred of likeability. Setting aside the blasphemous comparison of Jesus as a shameless con-artist, the biggest reason to not watch this film? It just isn’t funny.
