The Invention of Lying Trailer

Formerly known as This Side of the Truth, the trailer for The Invention of Lying starring, written, and directed by British comedian Ricky Gervais has hit Yahoo today. Here's the concept: Imagine a world where everyone can only tell the truth. And no-one has ever lied. There are no big lies. There are no small lies. Not even white lies. Until one man discovered how to lie. It looks like a quirky, crazy, fun comedy, similar to Bruce Almighty, except this has Ricky Gervais instead of Jim Carrey. I'm not dying to see this, but it does look good. And if you want to see a slightly different trailer, a UK version hit earlier today as well.

Watch the first trailer for Ricky Gervais' The Invention of Lying:

    I read the script for this a while back, and it was pretty good. Looking forward to this. It doesn't hint at the ending at all ether, which is really good. I thought the ending was the weakest part: maybe they changed it; there's a few scenes in this trailer that weren't in the script that I read.
  • brayon
    we live in a world of retardnation
  • keicharones
    I will see that movie.
  • keicharones
    Hey, Brayon, I totally agree. I completely wish I was smart, a genius even, too bad I'm fucking dumb though.
  • do you mean retar DATION or retard nation, because if its retard nation then you didn't say it in the right way. You said "we live in a world of retardnation" which should be said like "we live in a retarted nation or a nation of retards". im sure you meant we live in a world of retardation. hopefully,so you dont sound retarted.

    Erik, Shut the fuck up.
  • Xerxex

  • dexter
    #8 I'm with you. I love everything he does. Will be there when the film comes around.
  • daniel
    I - want - to - go - to - that
  • I've never liked Ricky Gervais and though I might be biased, and only based on this trailer, this looks like shit. The concept is funny, but I don't think I have the stomach for an hour and a half of the man riffing on this concept.
  • Derek
    Prize goes to Daniel.
  • richard
    I think Brayon and Nem need to go back to schooooooooooool
  • Conrad
    This is one of the strangest series of comments I've ever read on a blog post....cool idea for movie! Like Maria said, looks original.....
  • dan
    i don't know what the haters are having a problem with. it's a clever plot idea and interesting to think about..........a world where NOBODY EVER LIES. and it looks crazy funny!
  • Kevin
    I agree with #2...we DO "live in a world of retardnation", as exemplified by "brayon" and by the obscene amount of money a shitty movie like Transformers 2 makes. Humanity is retarndeded.
  • Jon
    What is the name of the song in the trailer?
  • NEM!! you shut up. this doesnt look horrible,but im sure i wont see it in theatres.
  • Marty
    This classic Gervais. Jon !! The second song is ELO, Mr Blue Sky. Don't know what the first song it though.
  • coswell
    Sounds funny :) Ill be eager to see it when it comes out.
  • Mario
    I hope that jonah hill doesn't appear much in the film. and Louis C.K., always good to watch him.
  • Moviegimp
    I laughed. Looks pretty funny. Sex with Alex, the hot prosecutor from Law and Order, yes please.
  • esophus
    a bit confusing....why would the teller give him the 800 dollars?why would lying help if shes looking at his bank account on the screen?
  • Syphous
    23... this is not the movie for you. Anyways, looks great. Can't wait.
  • NotLookingforNoTrouble
    "a bit confusing….why would the teller give him the 800 dollars?why would lying help if shes looking at his bank account on the screen? esophus on Jun 27, 2009" Because the teller assumes the computer MUST be wrong. A glitch in the system.
  • Eddy
    ¨The world´s gonna end unless we have sex right now!¨ That´s awesome
  • jman571
    Wow, this is such an amazing concept. I love how they've taken the idea that people CAN'T lie, and extended all the implication of that. Of course, if this were true, the world would be COMPLETELY different, so I guess this is a funny take on it.
  • Toni
    Fucking hysterical. Gervais' talent lies not necessarily with the material (although, he's often written funny stuff), but rather, the delivery. I think it will be fun...comedy, a little romance, a little moral implication. Lookin' forward to it personally...
  • Syphous
    My previous comment (#25) was not meant towards #23, but rather #24 (esophus). I must have typo'd.
  • lego
    louis ck is awesome. hope he does more then just agree with ricky
  • Jason K
    a third take on liar liar
  • Seductive Flamingo
    18...Its Mr. Blue Sky by ELO. Looks interesting to say the least!
  • Sammi
    This movie looks really funny but I would see it just because Tina Fey is in it.<3
  • bob
    whats the song called after he gets the money from the lady?
  • Lynda Starwriter
    The first line out of Anna's (Jennifer Garner) mouth is something about masturbating as she greets her date, Mark (Ricky Gervais) for the first time. Whoa! She goes on to tell him that she's not finished with the job, she wants to go back upstairs, leave him sit there alone while she does her...bidness, warning him that he might not hear anything for awhile. I felt embarrassed for ANNA and disconcerted for Mark. I wondered why he just didn't leave, further begging the question of why me and my 13-year-old son were still sitting there, too. We kept waiting for the dialogue to become a little clearer...though the characters were evidently uttering truths, my son and I didn't get where the story was going. In light of our relative embarassment, our disbelief that an entire movie was based on this questionable premise -- we got up and went to the adjacent theatre 10 minutes into this movie and that was five minutes too long. Don't know how it ended and I don't care. Perhaps Anna goes back upstairs and continues to masturbate well into her golden cougar days.

    The teller gave him $800 dollars because there is no such thing as lying there isn't even a word for it so when she looks at the screen she thinks that the computer has made an error.
