The Invention of Lying Reviews
09.30.09 by REELZ
Based on early reviews, The Invention of Lying might be the best (or at least best-reviewed) comedy of 2009. Take a look.
"...the performances are razor sharp. And the ideas in this movie are, no kidding, big."
— Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"While it never tops the explosive hilarity of its first 20 minutes, The Invention of Lying is a smartly written, nicely layered comedy..."
— Justin Chang, Variety
"One of the fall's funniest films — honest."
— Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"...brushes more big ideas than commonplace comedies, but hasn't taken those ideas through enough drafts to work out their implications or — harder still — make them killingly funny."
— Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
