One of Carrey's better performances and a good premise. Worth the watch for Carrey and comedy fans.

Although the premise makes for some somewhat contrived scenes, Jim Carrey's commitment to his role and comic energy elevates the film. The emotional conclusion actually feels fairly satisfying and believable, for a comedy.

One of Jim Carrey's best movies.

Liar Liar is a funny film. The movie is about a lawyer who never tells the truth. On his son's 5th birthday, Max makes a wish that his dad will not lie for one day.

Guess what it comes true. Some of Jim's scenes are hilarious especially when he his beating himself up. The other actors such as Maura Tierney and Jennifer Tilly do a good job. Though i've seen many Jim Carrey movies before , Liar Liar turned me into a mad fan of his. Liar Liar is the perfect comedy that can be also considered a drama because of the plot. Only Jim Carrey can act the way he acted in Liar Liar. He is definitely the king of comedy. This was my favorite Jim Carrey movie and I recommend this movie to all viewers who like Jim Carrey and like to laugh a whole lot.

On the night of Max's birthday, in which Fletcher promises to attend but gets 'caught up' at work, max wishes that his dad could for one day, not tell a lie.
What follows is the funniest day of his life. Being unable to tell a lie, Fletcher now must find a way to win the case and his son and ex-wife to his side. The court hearings are pure genius with Carrey as the lawyer acting opposite Jason Brenard as the judg...
