Even the most well-written and original films will suffer with Gervais in the lead role. :eek:

One man's wastepaper basket is another man's Christmas dinner. Or something.

What I mean is, if this didn't have Ricky Gervais's name on it I probably wouldn't even look twice.

I don't mind Ricky Gervais. I found Extras funny, but him as a person is just really annoying. :p I might watch it.

Never heard of it. I'll probably go and see it, sit through the whole thing with a straight face and then walk out, feeling depressed over my wasted 2 hours and entry fee. Just like every other comedy.

I think you're confusing Ricky Gervais for Jonathan Ross TRL ;). Ricky Gervais is brilliant.

Cheers for the heads up t-raider26, it looks like a good movie :tmb:

Spong, you could be the world's best comedian :D :p.

I think the concept sounds really good but it's Ricky Gervais that completely puts me off the film. I may watch it for the other actors though.

i like the honesty better than the lie

"Did you get better looking? Did you buy better clothes? Did you go to the gym?"

It almost seems as if the UK doesn't like Ricky Gervais? Why?

And people like Jennifer Garner & Rob Lowe put me off. Luckily RG will more than make up for that.

Jealousy.
I honestly think he's great. He let the fame of The Office go to his head and he got a bit arrogant for a while though.

Ricky Gervais is what is putting me off this movie. The plot itself seems promising. Shame

It seems kinda funny... Its also funny how many Hollywood movies are about the end of the world, climate change, and now lying for personal gain aka corporations and banks that caused the economic mess and also Bernie Madoff lol :p
