Pinch,punch,first day of the month! Welcome to another 405 Film Roundup! We have some awesome films for you to be checking out this week, from Foreign Drama to Ninja Action with some side splitting comedy thrown in for good measure.

The Invention Of Lying *The405 Pick Of The Day* Released:25th September, 2009 Directed by:Ricky Gervais, Matthew Robbinson Genre:Comedy Trailer:Click Here The Invention of Lying takes place in an alternate reality in which lying-even the concept of a lie-does not exist. Everyone-from politicians to advertisers to the man and woman on the street-speaks the truth and nothing but the truth with no thought of the consequences. But when a down-on-his-luck loser named Mark (Gervais) suddenly develops the ability to lie, he finds that dishonesty has its rewards. In a world where every word is assumed to be the absolute truth, Mark easily lies his way to fame and fortune. But lies have a way of spreading, and Mark begins to realize that things are getting a little out of control when some of his tallest tales are being taken as, well, gospel. With the entire world now hanging on his every word, there is only one thing Mark has not been able to lie his way into: the heart of the woman he loves. 2. Funny People Released:July 31st, 2009 Directed by:Judd Apatow Genre:Comedy Trailer:Click Here Over the past few years, writer/director Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up) has shown that nothing—not even losing your virginity or the miracle of childbirth—is sacred. About his third film behind the camera, he says, “I’m trying to make a very serious movie that is twice as funny as my other movies. Wish me luck!” Apatow directs Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Leslie Mann in Funny People, the story of a famous comedian who has a near-death experience.
