#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – It’s a world where everyone tells the truth – and just about anything they’re thinking. Mark Bellison is a screenwriter, about to be fired. He’s short and chunky with a flat nose – a genetic setup that means he won’t get to first base with Anna, the woman he loves. At a bank, on the spur of the moment he blurts out a fib, with eye-popping results. Then, when his mother’s on her deathbed, frightened of the eternal void awaiting her, Mark invents fiction. The hospital staff overhear his description of Heaven, believe every word, and tell others. Soon Mark is a prophet, his first inventive screenplay makes him rich, and he’s basically a good guy. But will that be enough for Anna?
Plot: Set in a world where the concept of lying doesn’t exist, a loser changes his lot when he invents lying and uses it to get ahead.

Brilliant concept and terrific execution. Wonderful casting.
Ricky Gervais and Jennifer Garner are absolutely believable throughout their respective characters’ evolution, and they play off each other very well. In fact, everyone’s performance is spot on. And the cinematography beautifully plays up (or down, rather) the fictional world which is the story’s setting.
If you’re hoping for non-stop one-liners and ridiculousness throughout, this is not your film. While this film’s cheeky, pointed story is loaded with wit – including some side-splitting scenes (I cried with laughter watching Ricky Gervais’ character face questions from a credulous crowd) – it has a real and rather serious plot. There is a point to this fiction, indeed.
Good vehicle for (and by) Gervais
I was pleasantly surprised by this film. From a simple premise as “lying doesn’t exist” it develops into a thoughtful tale with a touch of satire. On the one hand it exposes early on the basic first impressions we all have of each other and of situations we find ourselves in. On the other, it touches on the importance of being honest about what we know and especially honest about what we don’t know.
I could examine all the inconsistencies inherent to a concept like this. One would think that without the concept of duplicity, we should be far more advanced than we currently are. One would also think that without lying, there would be no imagination and therefore very few scientific discoveries and advances. The story requires that you don’t think about that too much, just to enjoy the script as it moves along.
Gervais carries the film along as planned, in his quiet, self-effacing way. The humor won’t have you rolling on the floor, but the frankness of the casual insights should make anyone snicker with self-awareness at the truth of it all.
