Big Fat Liar

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.

Movie Info

Who's afraid of the big bad Wolf? Not Jason Shepherd. This 14-year-old thinks on his feet and when he has to prove that sleazy Hollywood producer Marty Wolf stole his class paper and is turning it into the blockbuster movie "Big Fat Liar", he is ready for battle. Traveling to Los Angeles from his home in Michigan with his best friend Kaylee, Jason tries to break into show business--literally. The result? 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?
