Liar Liar

Let me tell you, in the ’90s and early ’00s, Jim Carrey could do no wrong, he was a comedy machine and I ate up everything he did, even The Cable Guy! He is such a talented actor and he has just got better and better as the years have gone on. I have gotten a massive kick out of him playing Dr. Robotnik in the Sonic the Hedgehog movies.

Reviewing Liar Liar: A 90s Comedy

Liar Liar is another fun Jim Carrey movie from the 90s, but this one is not going to top the likes of Dumb and Dumber, Me, Myself and Irene, or Ace Ventura. Do not get me wrong, this is a very funny movie, but in comparison to the other movies that Jim Carrey did at the time. I must admit, Liar Liar is one that often slips my mind when I think of the movies he made during this period.

The Story of Fletcher Reede

Jim Carrey plays a defense attorney called Fletcher. Fletcher is amazing at his job and has a real knack for getting his clients off. While he is great at his job, Fletcher is also a loving dad to his son Max, but he often neglects him, putting work first. This always crushes Max as he loves his dad and when they are together it is great. They do a great job of showing the bond between Max and Fletcher, especially with the wrestling stuff which I loved.

The Wish That Changed Everything

Max’s ex, Audrey hates seeing Max get disappointed all the time. She has a new boyfriend and he is a good man and he is good to Max so she decides they are going to move with him to Boston! Fletcher misses Max’s birthday party and Max makes a wish that his dad cannot lie for a whole day and it comes true!

Hilarious Consequences of Truth

Lying is a huge part of Fletcher’s job and also his life and it puts his current case that he is working on in real jeopardy. We get some hilarious scenes where Fletcher is forced to tell the truth. My favorite scene in this movie is actually one of my all-time favorite Jim Carrey scenes.

The Climactic Resolution

Realizing that he cannot lie to get out of the trial where he cannot lie for his client. Fletcher has the great idea to “kick his own ass” and get so hurt that the trial will have to be called off. This scene always makes me laugh and I cannot think of Jim Carrey without thinking of this scene. By a mile, it is my favorite part of the movie.

Reflecting on Liar Liar’s Legacy

Look, you know where Liar Liar is going and it is one of the more predictable movies when it comes to Jim Carrey in the 90s. He, of course, realizes that it is better to tell the truth and he decides that he will always put Max first. This is great and a nice message, but I do feel that the movie goes a bit overboard with the super happy ending! If you have seen it, you know what I am talking about.

I watched Liar Liar for the first time in many years recently and I thought that it was a lot of fun. I feel that 1998’s The Truman Show and 1999’s Man on the Moon showed that Jim Carrey could do far more than just comedy. However, I also feel that he got to do a little bit more dramatic acting in Liar Liar as well that he does not get the credit for, especially the stuff with him being a good dad to Max.
