Lying Liar

I can't believe it's been almost a year since I started my movie watch list!  Up next:

The Invention of Lying (2009)
Written and Directed by: Ricky Gervais & Matthew Robinson
Starring: Ricky Gervais, Jennifer Garner, Jonah Hill, Louis C.K., Rob Lowe, Jeffrey Tambor, Tina Fey, Fionnula Flanagan

Synopsis: Mark Bellison (Gervais) lives in a world where everyone always tells the truth. After losing his job and being threatened with eviction by his landlord, Mark -- now in dire straits -- tells the first ever lie and discovers that by not telling the truth he can get just about anything he wants. But is this new found power really all it's cracked up to be, and will lying help win over the girl he loves (Garner)?
