Fletcher Reede, a fast talking attorney, habitual liar, and divorced father is an incredibly successful lawyer who has built his career by lying. He has a habit of giving precedence to his job and always breaking promises to be with his young son Max, but Fletcher lets Max down once too often, for missing his own son's birthday party. But until then at 8:15 Max has decided to make an honest man out of him as he wishes for one whole day his dad couldn't tell a lie. When the wish comes true all Fletcher can do is tell the truth and cannot tell one lie. Uh-oh for Fletcher! Written by

Acoustic pop artists Jars of Clay wrote a song titled "Five Candles" that was intended to play during the end credits of the film. However, when the producers decided to include the outtake montage at the end, the song wasn't used. See more »
When Fletcher is wrestling with the pen, he pins his arm down and says "Write it or I'll break it off". He had no intention of breaking his own arm off, therefore this was a lie which he should not have been able to tell. See more »
Mrs. Cole, is this a copy of your driver's liscense?
It says here you are a blonde, are you? If you don't remember perhaps Mr. Faulk will.
Maybe if we play the tape again, maybe it's on there...
I'm a brunette!
Thank you. Now let's see... weight 105? Yeah, in your bra.
Your honor, I object.

True the plot is a little corny, my only criticism of the movie, but Jim Carrey's wonderfully energetic and most of the time hilarious performance more than compensates. Liar Liar is easily one of Carrey's better films, I do confess I will need to see a few more of his movies before concluding which one's his best to save bias. What Liar Liar manages to do is have a slightly corny though very interesting idea, and make into a good spirited and absolutely hilarious film. The script almost the whole time verged on hysterically funny, and there are many priceless scenes, especially the courtroom scene- I needed to go to the bathroom to check I hadn't wet myself from laughing so much. The other performances were great, Cary Elwes was excellent, and the boy was very sweet and charming. Overall, a hilarious movie, that does cheer you up considerably after a hard day, I still chuckle even thinking of it. There is so much to recommend this, but at the end of the day, it is Carrey's picture. 9.5/10 Bethany Cox
