It's a world where everyone tells the truth - and just about anything they're thinking. Mark Bellison is a screenwriter, about to be fired. He's short and chunky with a flat nose - a genetic setup that means he won't get to first base with Anna, the woman he loves. At a bank, on the spur of the moment he blurts out a fib, with eye-popping results. Then, when his mother's on her deathbed, frightened of the eternal void awaiting her, Mark invents fiction. The hospital staff overhear his description of Heaven, believe every word, and tell others. Soon Mark is a prophet, his first inventive screenplay makes him rich, and he's basically a good guy. But will that be enough for Anna?Written by
The main character's name as it appears on his office door is M. Bellison. This may be a play on the French word embelli'son, which means "someone who beautifies reality or embellishes." See more »
When Greg and Mark are being pulled over by the motorcycle cop, the rearward shot clearly shows that they are on a 4 lane street with buildings on each side, and he stops in the left lane near the center line. But in the remainder of the scene they are stopped in the right lane of a long bridge.
Also, the lights on the police motorcycle are still flashing as the officer walks up to confront the driver of the car. Later in the scene, the lights on the motorcycle are not on anymore. See more »
I thought this movie was fantastic, The truth is that people at their core are to that extent superficial and "rude" to put it lightly. This movie revolves around how the world would word if absolutely everything you thought to say but suppressed out of courtesy instead came flying off your tongue without a thought. To put it bluntly I think this movie was being far too kind compared to what would really happen if a world like this actually existed, but on top of that the actors in it played perfectly. It had just the right mix of comedy and drama to make it a success.
Ten out of ten, I recommend you don't miss this one.
