Review of The Invention of Lying

In honor of 'The Invention of Lying', I will write this review in the style of the movie:
I was excited to watch this film as I hadn't seen it before. I like Ricky Gervais although I believe he is a pompous arsehole who has an over inflated sense of self worth. That said he is very funny. The film kicked off and I found the premise that no one could lie inviting and intriguing; although i'm sure those are synonyms. After 5 minutes of the cast's refreshing honesty I found it tedious and tiresome; again another synonym which I fear is revealing my inexperience in technical writing. The film trundled along at a reasonable pace until the invention of lying. This twist then gave a refreshing outlook on the film which made me enjoy it more. However Ricky Gervais is undoubtedly 1 dimensional which is ok if you enjoy his brand of humor, which I do, but at 100 minutes long I found myself getting bored once again. I laughed out loud twice. I realised way too late that I have actually seen this film before but was too lazy to get up from the seat I had been sitting in for 10 hours straight to turn it over. It wasn't a total waste of time, i suppose I enjoyed it, but it was hardly the greatest film ever made. I am sometimes confused about my sexuality.
