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 leaves an important story assignment entitled "Big Fat Liar" in movie producer Marty Wolf's limo, which Marty then turns into a film. When Jason sees a movie preview of his story, he and his best friend, Kaylee, travel to Los Angeles to make Marty confess to using his story, to clear his name, and to get him out of having to attend summer school. Jason then has to match wits with Marty, who also turns out to be a big liar.Written by
Marty Wolf tells Jason that he'll tell his father he wrote Erin Brockovich (2000) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Much like the movie within the movie, both films were inspired by true stories. (Though some of the events of Saving Private Ryan (1998) are fictional, it was loosely inspired by a similar event during World War II.) Another reason why Marty Wolf at least mentioned Saving Private Ryan (1998) is probably because he was in that movie before this one. See more »
In the classroom in the beginning, the boom mic is clearly visible for a significant amount of time. See more »
The DVD contains a few deleted and extended scenes, including an extended scene of when they are filming the chicken movie, an extended scene at Marty's party, a deleted scene at the end were a big crate falls on Marty's car, and an additional scene that is part of the takedown sequence where the gatekeeper won't let Marty into the studio.

When a 14 year old boy has an accident with one of Hollywood's biggest producers, he soon finds that the producer has begun to make a movie off of an English paper story he left in his car. When no one believes the kid he takes his best friend and they go to Hollywood to get the producer to admit that the kid created the story and they are willing to do anything to make sure he admits it. Although this is more for kids it is still a fun comedy for all ages. A good acting job by the young actors. ** out of ****.
