03.07.15DVD Good cast but it wasn't funny. I never fully bought the core conceit of the film which was the whole world didn't know what lying is. It made for a few chuckly gags like Pepsi's slogan "For when they don't have Coke" but I don't think people would act that way even if they couldn't tell lies. This was more like unnecessarily-brutal-honesty world rather than no-lying world, so everyone's behavior kind of bugged me, then it was pretty one-note after that. There's also a bit of... so this is basically a superhero movie since he has a power that nobody else has, but just like that Adam Sandler movie Click I think I personally would use the power of lying WAY better than he did here, so for the whole movie I couldn't help but think about all the other cool stuff he could be doing with this power.
