Should be hilarious. In a world where fiction and lies simply just don't exist, one man discovers that he can lie.

Ricky Gervais keeps a blog on the production of the movie.

http://www.rickygervais.com/thissideofthetruth.php

Recently said that Karl Pilkington was on the set, so it'll be funny to see the balded headed manc twat in the movie somewhere. He may have just been on one of his holidays, Ricky didn't really clarify.

They've also got Rob Lowe, Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner on board.

According to Ricky Gervais' blog, this movie is in the final stages of editing... I'm not sure if it's actually coming next year, or this...

Yeah I know, cause he was saying how Karl doesn't want to do podcasts anymore because people are saying they are scripted and Karl is really an actor. Then he went off on how he not an acting and that would be what they had advertised if they had hired an actor.

I was Just watching a clip where they were thinking or song titles about New York with out New York in the title and Karl couldn't think of anything and they kept giving him shit and he just go, "I don't want to play anymore." It was halarious!

The one at the top of the Ricky Gervais blog is pretty funny. It's part of monkey news. Not his best monkey news, but good none-the-less.

tsk, it's so easy to do a Karl joke... you just put 'nthat...' after whatever the joke is.

That picture's pretty funny though.

Ricky Gervais writing/directing/starring, awesome.

Christopher Guest? Double awesome.

Tina Fey? Ugh. Drops down in points big time. At least she's not writing it.

No way man, we need to leave it so everytime somebody sees it, and sees there was already a thread, they'll be all like, "HAHA, HECK! made a thread when there already was a thread. What a dork." Then they'll take a puff of their inhaler and adjust their pocket protector.

I started a third thread, and put it in the t.v. section, cause Tina Fey is in it.

Name of this movie has changed to The Invention of Lying. I hate the name, but Ricky Gervais said it'll make more sense after you see it. It makes sense already, I just think it's lame.

I keep seeing previews for this flick. Can't wait. Louis CK is also in it. Dude is a great comedian.

Gervais looks great in this movie. Bring it.

Should be awesome. Ricky Gervais is something else entirely. Never fails to crack me up.

Watched this last night. 'Twas everything I hoped for and more.

The supporting stars weren't in it that much, it was very focused on Ricky Gervais. Which was brilliant, of course, because the whole thing worked so well.

My favorite bit was when he was going on about the man in the sky, and the man in the sky decides who dies, and if you're good you go to the happiest place you can think of. Then they just went on and on asking questions. I cracked up.

But it was good from the start, especially Jennifer Garner's stuff during her date with Ricky Gervais. Love it.

Watched it last night. Good movie, very funny in parts. I get the whole people not being able to lie, but don't understand why they say everything they are thinking. Like when he arrives for the date and she says he's early, she didn't have to follow that with the fact that she was masterbating. And then he didn't have to tell her that that made him think of her vagina. Or would not saying it be lying by omission? I guess it wouldn't be as funny if they didn't say it though cause that part did have me cracking up.

That was hilarious. My favorite part was when everyone in the crowd was like "FUCK THE MAN IN THE SKY!" "YEAH!" That whole bit with him explaining it all to the crowd was classic.

Haha yeah. I was telling Jamie about the movie this morning. I was I telling that part. And I siad that the dude was like "Fuck the man in the sky!" and I just busted out laughing, because in context it was h alarious. He didn't tell me I'm going to hell or anything so I think he may give the movie a shot.

This was alright, could've been funnier, I reckon there was a lot more potential in the story than they actually put on screen. Thought there would've been more from the other characters, it gives Gervais & Garner 90% of the screentime, which I guess is OK, I just wasn't expecting that. The ending was a bit predictable, but cute and sweet.

The Coke TV commercial made me laugh:
