Entertaining, Not Surprising
7 October 2016 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

From ticket-fixing in our police departments to test-score scandals in our schools, from our elected leaders' extra-marital affairs to financial schemes undermining our economy, dishonesty seems to be a ubiquitous part of the news.

By no means was I surprised by anything in this film. Lying is everywhere, and in many ways encouraged by society. Even when not encouraged outright, a small lie or an exaggeration that has little chance of being caught is something perhaps worth the gamble if you have something to gain. Is it moral? In some cases, is it legal? Despite nothing really new here, I loved the host and his sense of humor. He made the material entertaining and presented some studies that show us that the majority of people are dishonest... but within certain parameters. Perhaps the funniest part is when he explains the gender differences.
