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
The blue dye was tattoo ink that was sprayed in several layers on his body occasionally throughout the day to keep it topped up. According to Paul Giamatti (Marty Wolf), it was fairly easy to apply, but was a bit more difficult to get off, particularly his feet, for some reason. They stayed blue for several months. See more »
The shade of blue on Marty Wolf throughout the movie changes inconsistently. See more »

I told you, Wolf. The only way to shoot this scene is from 12 different camera angles, with birds flying around. By the by, Confucius say, "Kastang! You're busted!" Rock and Roll, Baby!

This is a hilarious movie about a kid who just wants to earn his dad's trust back. Frankie Muniz, Paul Giamatti, and especially Amanda Bynes all provide excellent performances. It's a well-written story with some very important messages. Much of it seems to be set in Universal Studios, on lots one can see during one of the tours, which makes the movie even more enjoyable. I haven't laughed this much in a long time.
