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

There are two celebrity cameos within the first two minutes of the film. 1) Chris Darden - As Fletcher Reede (Jim Carrey) is leaving the court building, he is asked "Hey Fletcher! How did it go in there?" by the real-life Chris Darden, the lawyer that prosecuted OJ Simpson. Fletcher replies "Just another victory for the wrongfully accused!" to which Darden comments "Yeah right!" which is a cynical play on OJ Simpson being "wrongfully accused" for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson. 2) Randall Craig "Tex" Cobb, who was in the original Ace Ventura as "Gruff Man" is seen going into the court building & asking if Fletcher wants his coat back See more »
When Fletcher tells Judge Stevens that he made a huge mistake, Stevens tries to brush it off with Fletcher then saying "Maybe you can tell that to the kids when they get adopted by the Manson family!" Although this was sarcastic it was still a lie, so Fletcher should not have been able to say it. See more »

Jim Carrey plays a liar lawyer called Fletcher Reede.His son Max (Justin Cooper) makes a birthday wish that his father can't tell a lie in 24 hours.And the wish comes true. That gets Fletcher in many embarrassing situations.It's hard to tell the truth all the time especially for a lawyer.That's not the only problem Fletcher is having.His ex-wife Audrey (Maura Tierney) is moving to Boston with his boyfriend Jerry (Cary Elwes).That must be stopped.Jim Carrey does incredible role work in this Tom Shadyac's 1997 comedy Liar Liar.Jim is amazing comedian.He can pull his face just like Jerry Lewis.This is completely a Jim Carrey show.There are many hilarious scenes in the courtroom.Liar Liar is for all you liars out there.
