Carrey's mugging glosses over some tough issues.

A sickly soft-swirl confection of low laughs and smarmy sentiment...

A lot of fun, especially when Carrey reels off an entire lifetime's worth of driving offences to a nearby cop.

Close to an ideal jumping-off point for Carrey, who spends the better part of an hour grotesquely physicalizing his scummy lawyer's struggle with being obliged to utter cold, hard facts.

Pretty rudimentary, but it keeps Carrey's occasional over-exuberance in check and delivers likeable, effective, but decidedly mainstream comedy.

Carrey truly works his *** off to get a laugh.

A product that has nothing, zero, zip going for it besides the presence of its star.

After a while, Jim Carey's character making a fool of himself is becoming annoying and the ultra-sentimental finale doesn't ring a little bit true.

Entregando-se com uma energia assustadoramente feroz ao personagem, Jim Carrey comprova mais uma vez seu dom para a comédia física e transforma O Mentiroso em um filme simplesmente hilário.
| Original Score: 4/5

Strong on premise, the film is short on plot.

Like Robin Williams, Carrey has learned to do his side-splitting shtick in character. He's not only under control, but funnier than ever as the truth-impaired Fletcher Reede.

While the ending is a little too syrupy for my taste, it is still a very funny film, mostly because of Carrey's antics.

...Liar Liar stands to make a liar out of those who predicted that Carrey's career was on the skids.

The effect is surprisingly touching. No matter what you think of his humor, by gum, the man works hard.

Finds an amusing premise and beats the hell out of it, propelling it into one hysterically funny situation after another.

Carrey's willingness to do anything for a laugh, like pounding his head with a toilet seat, almost pays off.

...Jim Carrey makes a wild and remarkable comeback to cheerfulness...

...just hilarious enough to restore trust in the star's bankability.

I have to admit that I generally don't like Jim Carrey but I thoroughly enjoyed Liar, Liar.

As Carrey's celebrated rubber does its patented act, the flick turns into a gyrational marathon -- mildly funny but seriously exhausting.
