I saw this movie a few days ago, and have read the reviews here, and I think the naysayers here have missed the point.

Firstly, there has to be "willing suspension of disbelief." If you can't plant yourself in the universe that Gervais has created, and align it to your own "real" world, you're doomed to not like this movie. Start there and then move on...

Gervais is not telling us religion is a lie. His character created his own lie to comfort his mother in her dying moments. In much the same way that Brian in Monty Pythons Life of Bryan is mistaken as the Messiah, the main protagonist here becomes a victim of his lies, finding he has to spin an ever increasing web to keep people happy and the people are hungry for more. If you notice he becomes very reluctant to say more about "The Man in the Sky" because he doesn't like the way things have panned out from the moment in the hospital.

The moral is lying does not bring him happiness, and telling the truth does - it gets him the woman he loves. I also think in an obscure way, he is making the point that religion, in all its faiths, has become the root of a lot of problems in our society.

This is a lovely fun little film, and deserves an open mind. It appears to me that as soon as anyone introduces religion into something, viewers become remarkably blinkered to what is being told in the story. Get off your soapboxes and take another look.

Format: DVD
Rich Bellison lives in a world where nobody lies, and his eyes are set on Anna, young, pretty, and totally out of his league. Not only do people not lie, they do not censor their thoughts, and therefore what's said can seem absurdly insensitive. Nobody ever questions the truth, because there is nothing other than the truth to question.

When her mother calls mid date Anna says she does not find Rich attractive, and she will not be having sex with him, as he is not a genetic match, and she does not want her children having snub noses. We get to know Rich by his reaction. In fact he is the one person in this world who does not have to say everything he thinks.

As events unfold disastrously for Rick, he finds himself in the position where he becomes the first liar. Telling the lie opens up opportunities, and ultimately becomes the path to fame and fortune if not to his hearts desire. It's an exploration of truth and lies, and not a glorification of either one.

Ultimately, he becomes the first person to posit thoughts about the afterlife, which everyone believes without question. However, he recognises that lying to Anna, while it would work will yield only a hollow victory. Is it possible to win Anna from the clutches of the perfect match without lying?

While Ricky Gervais may not be your typical leading man, he does have a tremendous and admirable creative ability, as evidenced by his creating the The Office Collection and Extras: The Complete Series (Includes Series Finale), and a tremendous understanding of comedy.

Definitely worth checking out. I thought this movie was the funniest thing I'd seen all year until I saw the review from the bloke who asked if Ricky Gervais was accusing the "50 people" who wrote the Bible of being liars. Hilarious, now that's comedy. It's tragic and frightening that there are people that ignorant on this planet. Anyway, I'll be brief, if you love Ricky Gervais's original and brilliant mind then you will love this movie, a brave and brilliant film with some stellar talent to enjoy too. Do not believe the creationist and fundamentalist propaganda, their vituperative vitriol is rather ironic considering that this is in fact a movie and they are supposed to have "faith". Sit back and enjoy one of the funniest men on the planet and judge for yourselves rather than listen to the science denying rabble who believe in evil fairy tales written by ignoramuses from the bronze age.

Ricky Gervais' outrageously funny satire of the human condition proved too bitter and cynical for mainstream audiences, but anyone who has ever found themselves on the outside looking in will find much to appreciate here. "The Sermon of the Pizza Boxes" is a comic gem!!!

By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER on Aug. 9 2010
Format: Blu-ray
This movie is for the most part a standard formula romantic comedy with an added twist that sort of went awry. Anna McDoogles (Jennifer Garner) is attracted to Mark Bellison (Ricky Gervais) however; his pudgy physique and plug nose would not contribute properly to the gene pool. Therefore, he would not make a suitable mate.

But wait, we live in a world where lying is impossible. But wait still, Mark has discovered the secret. He tests his ability on a lady in the street; "the world is going to end if we don't have sex right now." Armed with this knowledge will Mark explained to Anna that being rich and successful will change his gene pool capabilities?

The movie goes steaming along until it is bogged down in a pizza box scene. Here Mark experiments with lying to the masses. It is time to press the fast forward button as what could have been interesting turns out to be a Monty Python question-and-answer knockoff. (Of course, if you are a fan of Monty Python you might appreciate this intercourse.)

Will market the girl?
Will the masses get Mark's hide?
Will we get the point?
Do we really care?

I have only seen the Blu-Ray version so I cannot compare to other versions. However, there are some extra goodies including a cave man version of the story.

Overall, it is worth the watch. However, do not plan on anything exceptional.
