More About The Invention of Lying - Ricky Gervais
 
 
 
Overview

It's no surprise that Ricky Gervais would be able to assemble a cast of funnymen (and funnywomen) for his directorial debut, but THE OFFICE star truly impresses with this list: Jennifer Garner, Louis C.K., Tina Fey, Christopher Guest, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jonah Hill. THE INVENTION OF LYING stars Gervais (who co-directed and co-wrote the script with Matthew Robinson) as a man living in a world where no one tells lies. When he discovers that he doesn't have to always tell the truth, things begin to change with inevitably hilarious results.
