Billed as a family film, only very young children will be able to dive into the story without banging their heads.

A lame collection of dumber-than-dumb gags, the quality of Big Fat Liar is on par with that of the worst television sit-com gorged to four times its normal size.

It's a feature best viewed on mute. Or not at all.

Feels at times like a giant commercial for Universal Studios, where much of the action takes place.

Big Fat Liar is just futile silliness looking to tap into the kiddie sensibilities.

So farfetched...

Not a whiff of satire is to be found; rather, the excesses and idiocies of Hollywood are celebrated.

A harmless and mildly amusing family comedy.

It's no surprise, alas, that Mr. Muniz and Ms. Bynes seem considerably smarter than the frantic knockabout comedy in which they find themselves trapped.

The sort of movie that hands critics a dagger and invites them to plunge right in.

A bland, obnoxious 88-minute infomercial for Universal Studios and its ancillary products.

Collapses after 30 minutes into a slap-happy series of adolescent violence.

The movie thinks it's being funny simply by throwing concepts up on the screen.
