Liar Liar Reviews

March 21, 2017
Carrey has never been better - that is to say funnier, or more controlled. He's reached a higher performance plateau here, playing a real human being we care about rather than a goon figure.

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.
June 24, 2006
Pretty rudimentary, but it keeps Carrey's occasional over-exuberance in check and delivers likeable, effective, but decidedly mainstream comedy.

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.

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

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

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.

This is Carrey's most mature (and mainstream) comic turn, with flashes of introspection and tenderness.

Its premise is flimsy, but its payoff is riotously funny.

Well into his tumultuous career, Mr. Carrey finally turns up in a straightforward comic vehicle, and the results are much wilder and funnier than this mundane material should have allowed.
