Carrey, unique among American stars, doesn't need story or writing to delight. He needs only room, and "Liar, Liar" gives him plenty.

Carrey fans the world over should rejoice at the squidgy-faced one's return to form -- this is quite possibly his best, most consistently funny film yet.
April 7, 2020
Carrey's frenzied physical and vocal contortions provide lots of amusing comic moments, as well as a few riotous ones, and the role is not only tailor-made for his rubber-faced antics but also gives him an opportunity to show a more human side.

Despite being way, way, way (way) over-the-top at times, Liar Liar is vintage Jim Carrey and a nice return to form. Honestly.

This is essentially a one-joke movie, but it's a nifty joke.

Pretty funny, at least during those moments when it doesn't turn into goo.

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.

Jim Carrey entertains himself mightily, and his enthusiasm is infectious.
December 14, 2008
A lot of fun, especially when Carrey reels off an entire lifetime's worth of driving offences to a nearby cop.
November 21, 2008
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.

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 comdia fsica e transforma O Mentiroso em um filme simplesmente hilrio.
May 20, 2003
Strong on premise, the film is short on plot.
April 26, 2003
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.
March 16, 2003
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.
September 10, 2002
Finds an amusing premise and beats the hell out of it, propelling it into one hysterically funny situation after another.
