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.

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.

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.

I have to admit that I generally don't like Jim Carrey but I thoroughly enjoyed Liar, Liar.
July 12, 2001
If you're NOT a Carrey fan, I recommend you see this & THEN pass judgement on his talent & his ability to hold a movie together with something other than his butt.He rocks.

While the humor is absolutely hilarious, the sentiment is overly sappy, and several times that conflict risks sinking this otherwise sturdy vehicle.

February 14, 2001 Liar Liar proves one more time, there is probably no more consistently funny performer working in film today.
