We’ve got an exclusive clip from Ricky Gervais’ upcoming comedy The Invention of Lying, about a man in a hilarious world of unfiltered, unfettered honesty who suddenly realizes that he can say things that are completely untrue and everyone will always believe him. Of course, he uses that to his advantage and improves his schlubby life dramatically. In this clip, Gervais has managed to score a date with Jennifer Garner, and not only does the waiter at the restaurant (Martin Starr) has to comment on how impossible it is that that could have happened, but he then has to listen to Garner’s brutally honest conversation with her mother on the phone.
