The Invention of Lying is Ricky Gervais' most recent film, still currently playing in some markets. It also stars Jennifer Garner, Jonah Hill, Fionnula Flanagan, Jeffrey Tambor and Rob Lowe. Gervais directed along with Matthew Robinson. If you've seen it, what did you think of it? Not sure whether in general films are accorded their own threads on LPSG, I momentarily thought I might pose my question in a pre-existing thread (roughly dealing with the same question from another point of view; i.e., the invention of religion), but I searched the site and didn't find another reference to the film, which I thought was brilliant in Gervais' typically understated way (e.g., Ghost Town), and I thought the ensemble cast was great, too. I also don't want anyone to perceive me as a troll, however well the premise of the film might have fit in with the overheated, yet clearly warmed over, topic of the other thread. BTW, neither Pizza Hut nor Domino's for me, thank you. I, too, prefer a local Italian restaurant's version of a Pizza Margaretha with a home-made, semolina/duram wheat-flour crust, fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, but with the addition of fresh, chopped clams. Their clams in white sauce pizza is good, too, if you like lots of garlic.
