Carrey's mugging glosses over some tough issues.

With a little more concentration on the script and a little more subdued Carrey, this could have been a much better film.

Essentially, the actor is miscast here. Unlike [Robin] Williams, he isn't good with children. In fact, you don't even sense that he likes his child co-star. There's no apparent rapport.

To his credit, Carrey is right for this sort of role, as his physical and facial contortions appropriately convey his character's shock and disbelief. But there are only so many jokes to be had with this as the film's centrifugal force.
| Original Score: 55/100

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

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.

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

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

I am gradually developing a suspicion, or perhaps it is a fear, that Jim Carrey is growing on me.

All-in-all, Liar Liar is pretty good fun, and it represents one of Carrey's most entertaining movies to date.

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.

Oh, I wasn't expecting much, really. And it was much better than Dumb and Dumber.

Unevenly acted, hatched from a one joke premise and trading precariously on a single performance, Liar Liar shouldn't be as funny as it is.

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.

Truth be told, the rapid-fire Liar, directed with unfussy flair by Tom Shadyac, is a one-joke movie. But it's a doozy.
