A group of friends from various places are hanging out in London. Their game of drunken adult truth-or-dare goes wrong and they wind up at the police station telling their stories.

This month is Nanowrimo and I take it very seriously. For those of you who don’t know, that stands for “National Novel Writing Month.” I use it as a way to flip off procrastination and power through writer’s blocks. 50,000 words in 30 days isn’t simple, but I’ll be damned if doesn’t work.

I’m writing this blog during day 3 at almost 1am. Once done, I intend to head to the 24 hour coffee shop and write for a few hours before the normal people get up and go to work. That’s when they usually kick me out because they need the table.

You may be asking yourself what that has to do with Liars All. I’m going to put it bluntly.

It’s November and I don’t have time for terrible, boring-ass movies that put me to sleep. I need to breath character development and cry caffeine for the next few weeks and Liars All did not help.

The story line was broken and had no twist at all. It was out of order and each part was told over and over again for an hour and half. It was like Brian Brightly (Man Camp, Home Run, Ironclad) tried to make it more realistic by removing any semblance of entertainment.

I like Matt Lanter (Disaster Movie, 90210, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) but he couldn’t save the film and Alice Evans (102 Dalmatians, The Vampire Diaries, Lost) spent the majority of the movie looking like she sucked on a lemon.

This movie was not worth the time I spent watching it.
