Set in an era where superheroes are commonly known and accepted, young William Stronghold, the son of the Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.
Identical twins, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, discover each other for the first time at summer camp and make a plan to bring their wayward parents back together.
A take on the classic tale 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf', this is the story of a 14-year-old boy named Jason Shephard who lies for the fun of it. He loses an important story assignment entitled 'Big Fat Liar' in movie producer Marty Wolf's limo, which Wolf then turns into a film. When Jason sees a movie preview of his story, he and his best friend Kaylee go to Los Angeles to make Wolf confess to using his story, to clear his name, and to get him out of having to attend summer school. The teen liar then has to match wits with Wolf, who also turns out to be a big liar. Written by
as himself acting in Marty Wolf's latest movie. Wolf never does learn his name, condescendingly and erroneously referring to him as "Urkel", to which White gets angry, saying that "Urkel is a character I played when I was a child!". Jaleel White played Steve Urkel on the hit TV show Family Matters (1989), which brought him much success but ultimately cursed him with typecasting, to the point that he once said that if anyone ever saw him in Urkel's outfit again, to just shoot him and put him out of his misery.

When Jason is talking to the people who hate Marty Wolf, and Kaylee starts talking about making him cry, she is standing next to Jason, but in the shot right before she starts talking, she is standing on the other side of the screen, next to Monty. See more »
[speaking to Vince about the stunt]
It was good, but I think I liked it better the first time I saw it... in 1942, you dinosaur!

Okay, I'll admit that if I didn't have kids, I never would have seen this film and would never see it. But, considering all the rotten kids movies I have seen (such as SPY KIDS 2 or BABE: PIG IN THE CITY), this is a significant improvement. And, it had enough in it that I wasn't totally bored out of my skull or contemplated suicide (something I did repeatedly in the other two movies). Sure, the performances are pretty broad and the plot is kinda silly--but it IS a kids film. And, compared with other films in the genre, this is definitely better than average. Frankie Muniz and Amanda Bines actually appear to have some talent and probably will continue to have careers after puberty--at least on infomercials or doing voice-overs.
So, if you are looking for a film to see with your kids, you certainly could do a lot worse!
