What to know

critics consensus

Though there's nothing that offensive about Big Fat Liar, it is filled with Hollywood cliches and cartoonish slapstick, making it strictly for kids. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Who's afraid of the big bad Wolf? Not Jason Shepherd (Frankie Muniz), who has to prove that sleazy Hollywood producer Marty Wolf (Paul Giamatti) stole his class paper and turned it into a blockbuster hit movie, "Big Fat Liar." Traveling to Los Angeles with his best friend Kaylee (Amanda Bynes), Jason tries to break into show business -- literally. Through a hilarious series of pranks and ruses, Jason brings one of Hollywood's most powerful producers to his knees.

Audience Reviews for Big Fat Liar

  • Dec 19, 2011
    This isn't a life-changing movie; it's not an epic or anything like that. But it's entertaining, and it's fun. It's a film that the whole family can watch together, and at the moment there are precious few kid-suitable films that don't have a love story in them. It tells a good story in a lighthearted way without trying to dazzle the audience with over-the-top special effects, like lots of films these days are. The acting is quite good too, the actors look comfortable and believable in their surroundings, all the music that's been used fits in pretty well with the movie content and most importantly the jokes are kind of funny.

    I don't find this movie as funny as I did when I was nine. Frankie Muniz has never been in a good movie, and Amanda Bynes hasn't been in a lot, so that's to be expected. Paul Giamatti though? What are you doing here?
