Storyline

Gilby Smalls is having a meltdown. He's just been fired from his job, lost his apartment in a fire and his girlfriend gave him the boot. And it's only Wednesday. Now, at the ripe old age of thirty-something, he is forced to move in with May, his booze-swindling man-obsessed mother. This is the last straw. Gilby's life is bleak until best friend Kevin drags him to a family get-together, where he meets Rachel, Kevin's very beautiful but very married sister. Rachel is the very thing Gilby needs to get his life back on track. Desperate to impress her, Gilby starts to weave a web of lies; one bigger than the next. Now in a sticky mess, Gilby is forced to face the uncomfortable truth about himself before he can find a way out of his very own Lies. The Truth About Lies explores the potent role lying plays in relationships and life with some surprising results!

Charming and Smart
16 November 2017 | by halleydurr-26684See all my reviews

The Truth About Lies has just joined my list of great romantic comedies. This movie is great because it's not just funny and cute, it's well written, and has a phenomenal cast with amazing chemistry. This movie reminded me how smart, witty, and charming romantic comedies can be. It deals with relationships beyond romance and gets deep into family, friendship, and dealing with life in general. You get to see the main character, Gilby grow as a character in his journey of self-discovery. The film does this all while still being hilarious. The sarcastic, dry humor in the movie had me laughing until my stomach hurt, and the witty banter between the main love interests reminded me of a Woody Allen movie. I seriously cannot recommend this movie enough, and it's a must see for anyone who loves a great romantic comedy.
