As evidenced during last Sunday's Emmys, Ricky Gervais can perk up any boorish affair. Written and directed by the star of the original "Office," the comedy is set in an alternate reality where no one has ever lied -- until one man decides to tell the first fib. More reasons to talk: Gervais' costars include funny people Tina Fey and Jonah Hill. (Friday) -- Denise Martin
