Ricky Gervais finds a way to lie in a world where everyone only knows how to tell the truth. Some funny, if very excepted jokes at the premise-setting phase and then as it usually goes with films of this formula, when the plot is supposed to go somewhere from there, it hits a wall and shows what it really has to offer, by turning in to this 'even though the main character has found a way to make the things go his way, he is unhappy because of living in a lie" type of thing. The biggest turning point in the plot was when Gervais makes up the "man in the sky" who has given him some rules over how people should live in order to get to the good place after they die, then everyone believes him and wants to live their lives based on these set of rules, without making any real decisions themselves. How very clever. They really came up with the most boring twist to the story they possibly could and then did close to nothing with it. And the kind of fun 'world without lying'-thing works just as a cover for the simple 'fat loser wants a woman "out of his league" to himself, by teaching her how to see behind the surface'-type story (he also uses some pretty cunning methods in order to get what he wants, but that's not even touched. I didn't want this to turn into that moral story either, but still). Rob Lowe was fun to watch almost always when he was on the screen, as was Jonah Hill. They managed to get some good actors in. Like Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jason Bateman both had one scene cameos. It's always fun to see Bateman after watching Arrested Development, because you always just see Michael Bluth and so he manages to be funny just by playing himself, basically. Kind of the same thing with Jeffrey Tambor, who was also in this.
