Jack Goes Confidential: Weekend Trifecta At The Movies!

A slew of new movies are on deck for this first (unofficial) Fall Film Premier Weekend!

My three picks include the clever and funny new comedy THE INVENTION OF LYING, set in a alternative reality where lying—even the concept of a lie—just doesn’t exist.

Enter down-on-his-luck loser Ricky Gervais who suddenly turns tables by developing the ability TO LIE!

Lots of great sidegags and funny signage pop up all through the picture.

My favorite: Pepsi When They Don’t Have Coke

Or some of the raunchy truths being tossed around like when Gervais is picking up Jennifer Garner for a first date and she volunteers “I’ve just been masturbating.” (You’ve got to love the truth.)

Sadly the picture doesn’t sustain its pace ’til the end.

It’s star-studded cast also includes Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, Rob Lowe, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Guest and Edward Norton.

THE INVENTION OF LYING for which I’m raising 3.5 out of 5 fingers.

I’m also recommending Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut film WHIP-IT starring JUNO’s Ellen Page who throws-in her small town beauty

    Being married to Ben Afleck, I’ll bet Jennifer Garner masturbates a lot.

    Right on smartman. …and being married to Ben Afleck, she watches Wheel of Fortune for the intellectual stimulation.

    What’s with all the masturbating with Jennifer Garner?. Just the thought of Emma Stone makes my manstick throb.

    Saw Whip It at a sneak preview last Saturday night and agree with you that it’s better then expected.
    About Adams Rib looking for a life saving investor I would think that the H.C. Christopher and S O N fortune could easily underwrite it and keep Overland Parkers porking out.
    How about it Hearne?

    Why is there a pic of Mila Kunis with Zombieland?

    Saw “ZOMBIELAND” last night and loved it. Based on your review will go see “INVENTION OF LYING” next. You haven’t let me down yet. Thanks Jack.

    The picture of Mila is SMOKIN!!! But she apparently has gotten herself enhanced as I don’t recall her being so large. What she sees in Caulkin I’ll never know but he is one lucky bas*ard.
