Trailer for Ricky Gervais in The Invention of Lying

I’m not always a big Ricky Gervais fan. Some of his stuff is really funny, but other stuff falls flat for me. His upcoming movie The Invention of Lying looks like it might fall somewhere in the middle. It’s got a good premise though. It’s set in a world where everyone has to tell the truth, all the time. As you can imagine, that leads to some awkward situations. But Gervais’ character figures out how to lie. Since everyone always tells the truth, people assume he’s telling the truth, even when he’s lying. See, I told you it was a good premise. Check out the trailer:

The Invention of Lying comes to theaters September 25th.
