Updated Title delivers perfectly
5 May 2001 | by (Los Angeles, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Now known as "Liar, Liar Pants On Fire" and playing the Independent screenings on weekends, I found the story and cast ensemble and continuity to be tightly woven and delightfully unpredictable -- to the point of not knowing who to cheer for as we (the viewers) subliminally take sides in issues of marriage and fidelity. The film never gets far from the "Liar, liar pants on fire" adage of childhood emotions. These emotions periodically percolate to the surface only to be submerged again as adult desire and innocent cover-ups make another round or two. Love and sex can be the same or separate or simultaneous human experiences.

The only flaw I experienced was a reference to specific dates in time in the story (i.e. 1999 and 2000). The script should have neutered itself and stayed with 'June', or 'August' or 'two years from now' since I had to reset my own clock to needlessly shave two years away from the story plot at a time I did not need any distraction.
