Trailer: Ricky Gervais's THE INVENTION OF LYING

I’ve been waiting for this trailer and it doesn’t disappoint. The Invention of Lying (formerly known as This Side of the Truth) has such an amazing cast, I don’t know how it can not be funny. No one can take a to-his-face insult like Ricky Gervais.

Besides the people seen in the trailer—Gervais, Jennifer Garner, Rob Lowe, Tina Fey, Christopher Guest, et al.—Jeffrey Tambor, Patrick Stewart and Jason Bateman are also in this movie. If that’s not enough, Gervais says on his blog there are “great cameo surprises.”

Co-written and co-directed by Gervais with Matthew Robinson, Lying opens September 25, 2009 in the U.S. and October 2 in the U.K.

    You are so trendy! I hadn’t heard of this film and now it’s at the top of my can’t-wait list. Thanks so much!

    Elizabeth, I’ve never thought of myself as trendy (currently wearing 5-year-old Levi’s and old T-shirt) but thank you!

    le0pard13 and Shelley P, I’m having a laugh right with you! I’ve watched the trailer 4 times because it keeps cracking me up.

    Seems amazing. I, as Elizabeth, had not heard of the movie until this post, and now I can’t wait for it to come out!

    And I do think you’re kind’a trendy… I mean, you are the one who puts most of my pop-culture-knowledge to the day!

    Thank you! And keep up the trend!

      OK, Poncho, if you insist I’m trendy, I’ll just have to shut up and take it! Thank you.

    That was some funny stuff!! And I’m not lying. I have been waiting for Gervais to do make a really funny movie. He’s talented, but always seems to just miss the mark when it comes to films.

    Thanks for giving me SOMETHING to look forward to in this upcoming crop of films, PCN!
