Storyline

Simon has been a compulsive liar since childhood. His family, friends and colleagues organize an intervention to tell him that enough is enough and that he must stop. Unfortunately, it turns into a confrontation and Simon denies having told all these lies. The next morning, he wakes up in a reality where all the lies he has ever told are proven facts: his car always has a flat tire, his colleague is sleeping at work, his sister-in-law has a crush on him. - In the eyes of others, this reality has always been like that. Fortunately, Simon's twin brother is also aware that this reality is not their original reality and he pushes Simon to face his problem in order to get out of this bad situation.

What if all your lies suddenly became reality?
24 August 2019 | by klusebaSee all my reviews

Menteur, internationally known as Compulsuve Liar, is a highly entertaining comedy movie featuring many famous actors and comedians from Quebec. The story revolves around compulsive liar Simon whose lies become reality one day and teach him that facing and telling the truth is important in life.

Not every gag works out and the opening sequences feel slightly rushed but about twenty minutes into the movie, things start getting truly hilarious. My personal highlight of the movie was Simon's boss played by a hilarious Geneviève Schmidt who changed from being strict, organized and influential to a confused drunkard overnight.

Menteur is hilarious entertainment for the whole family and a wonderful introduction to Quebec's comedy culture. In addition to this, the movie even presents valuable life lessons in a light-hearted way. Menteur isn't memorable enough for becoming movie of the year but certainly worth to be checked out at your local cinema.
