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 Reede.Written by

When Fletcher is having the pen war in his office, he comes up from behind the desk with the word Blue written all over his face. On his left jaw, "B.B. King" is written amongst all the blues. See more »

Randall 'Tex' Cobb's role (as "Skull) was considerably shortened prior to release. Originally filmed was a courtroom prologue where Fletcher successfully defends Skull using his usual, less-than-truthful tactics. Also filmed was a sequence in the jail where Fletcher meets Skull again in jail. The courtroom prologue was dropped entirely, but remnants of it still remain in the original theatrical trailers. The jail-cell scene was shortened, so much so that Cobb only has one line in the entire film, despite a prominent billing. The prologue is featured in the 'deleted scenes' section of the Special Edition DVD release. See more »
This was perhaps my favorite Jim Carrey movie. I found it to be hysterically funny, and Carrey was perfect for the role. His son wishes Carrey can only tell the truth for 24 hours, and it comes true. Unfortunately for Jim, it comes just as he is about to embark on the court case of a lifetime. Watching him go through the motions was a treat, and i guarantee you will love it. You will have to see it to understand, because most of it is too difficult to describe with written words, but it was FUNNY!
