I agree with the reviewer below (sort of) — 2 years ago
It’s true this film is slotted as a “comedy”. There is in fact, a distinct lack of funny in this movie. Although Matt Damon does a great job being this guy and you utterly believe him to be this dweeby, self important, compulsive liar. I have to give this movie major points for the treatment of this “real life story”. It really takes the “based on true life” film genre into new territory. But successfully? Not so much. This film falls flat in a lot of areas and really drags on with unimportant details. Some serious editing was desperately needed.
