The funniest movie ever
25 July 2003 | by shreeram_sSee all my reviews

This movie is absolutely hilarious, seamlessly combining the slapstick and the subtle to give a thoroughly enjoying experience. The plot is riveting, with its hilarious twists and turns that happen in the life of Harry Greaves, a compulsive liar. Harry lies to get himself out of sticky situations and also just for fun, with ,predictably, invidious results. Molina does very well in the role, his understated insouciance much more effective than any obstreperous Jim Carrey-esque hamming. The movie is a must see for all fans of great comedy!
