A fantastic movie, overshadowed by low budget and little to no promotion/recognition
30 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved Telling Lies. The only reason I got this movie to begin with was because I am a huge Spice Girls fan and I saw Melanie Brown was in it, so I just had to watch it sometime. The movie itself was really great and exciting. I did not look away from the screen once, because the movie sucks you in from the very beginning and keeps you completely interested through out the rest of the film.

The acting might have gotten slightly poor at times, but it was never terrible, and the plot was wonderful for a movie of this standards. All the characters were amazingly interesting too, such as Maggie, Faith, and Eve, which Eve was one of my favorite characters. It has a decent scipt and overall excellent entertainment value, which I think makes it a gem among anyone who is able to see it.

Overall I thought this movie delivered, and it is a shame that it was not as popular and appreciated as it was, because it was an excellent movie, which really the only problems it had were because of low budget and little to no promotion, recognition or advertising, because I can understand why it would not be a hit, but still, it deserved a lot more appreciation than it got. I recommend you see it immediately.
