Not a bad film & not a bad price, but Ricky Gervais is so so overated.

Is Ricky Gervais funny? Discuss.

I loved this film....see how easy it is to lie?

I find Ricky Gervais funny, but I can understand why he's not everyone's cup of tea

Wrong forums dont discuss here.

I thought this was an brilliant film totally original and will defo take a place in my collection. Too many re-makes of films so its nice to see something fresh and original

Gervais is a genius, but crap film.

Absolutely awful film. Avoid.

Bit pedantic maybe? He didn't say every single review, he said 'everywhere'. There's Starbucks everywhere but not every shop in the hight street is one... :roll:

First half hour is ok but it's down hill fast for the rest of the movie and i really like Ricky usually.:roll:

Blimey, I was only joking! :whistling:

I saw this last night and have to be honest I thought it was really funny. I'm no Gervais fan at all either.

Wouldn't do for us all to be the same - some will really like this film, some will hate it.

No he isn't. End of discussion.

Oh yes he is. End of discussion now.:roll:

Story line is brilliant, and gervais's atheism is shining through, which is great.

Its more of a comical **** take out of relgion, which is why there are lots of bad reviews.

Two words, Karl Pilkington - you'll worship Ricky Gervais once you've heard an hour or so of this bald mancunian's drivel :thumbsup:
As for the film, i hear it's okay; but i guess cinema just isn't Ricky's forte

An interesting high-concept type of film, but ultimately, it isn't that successful. The funniest moments are usually background items like the signs on buildings.

Blurting out the truth in a Tourette's style stream of consciousness stylee, volunteering unasked for information is NOT the opposite of lying. However, without that, the film would be even less funny than it is.

A brave try though.

no , the bad reviews are mainly because the film is bad. bad film=bad reviews.

The concept of this film is pretty good, and is better suited to a Jim Carrey film (its essentially the opposite of Liar Liar) or a sitcom. Watching it feels a bit like a first draft of a student screenplay - there are so many places it could have gone, it doesn't take advantage of many of the opportunities at all, and the jokes are spread very, very thin. Would never want to watch again, there is something very irritating about watching it, especially Jennifer Garner, the 'honest' characters all come across as slightly retarded.

One of the best comedies since Borat. My expectations were low, admittedly, as I'm not a Gervais fan. Essentially it's a satire on American manners and systems of faith, with a rom-com element thrown in to cater to the mass market. If you've been to the States in the last twenty or so years you can't help but find the first part hilarious - anyone who's been in a restaurant over there and left being told 'I'll be missing you' will know exactly what this is about. But Gervais builds upon this - the skit on religion is almost as strong as Life of Brian, from which it draws inspiration. As for all this talk of bad reviews, check out the one in the Guardian. The tabloids were less favourable, but then that was of little surprise. Superb and a bargain at this price.

Like it or not its a good price for a new release DVD - voted hot

Actually if we're in the subject of lying....this is a great film - a must watch. Honestly.... you will not feel that you have just spent £8 on a new release that you wish you hadn't even spent 8p on....

Started watching this film last night, had to switch it off after 30mins.. it's terrible!!! And I do like Ricky Gervias.

The bad reviews are warming me to this film. Not going to rush to see it but will watch it with an open mind when I do.

Sounds like one to watch via lovefilm.
