Pitting kids against grown-ups has always been a reliable source of comedy, and Big Fat Liar indulges the "smart kid vs dumb adult" fantasy with infectious enthusiasm. In this case it's Frankie Muniz from TV's Malcolm in the Middle, playing a Michigan eighth-grader whose penchant for lying results in parental scorn when he claims that a Hollywood movie mogul (ace character actor Paul Giamatti) has stolen the kid's hastily written English essay and turned it into his upcoming summer blockbuster. The kid only wants to prove his honesty and recruits his girlfriend (spunky TV star Amanda Bynes) to beat the honcho on his Hollywood turf. Elaborate practical jokes and slapstick gags turn this kid stuff (scripted and produced by two former child stars) into an enjoyable send-up of Hollywood absurdity. When combined with Giamatti's mastery of slow-burning megalomania, the show-biz in-jokes and Home Alone-style anarchy make this a harmless diversion for the young and young-at-heart. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Fat Liar - you must see 3 Dec 2002
To all comedy lovers,
This film is brilliant and do not be turned off that it is aimed at kids cos i'm not one and me and my friend could not stop laughing right the way through this film. If you haven't seen the Malcolm In the Middle star in this, then you have not seen him at his funniest. His plan to get the director who stole his story to tell the truth to his dad, maybe, i agree be a bit chilidish but you don't really remember this while watching his plans being hatched to actually get to talk to the director and the revenge he gets on him. The only down side i would say is at the end, between the two main characters, but i'll let you watch it to find out!! Its definetly a must see or a must buy for anyone who wants a good laugh, so much so that your cheeks and stomach are hurting by the end of it and of course hours after, while recalling all the funniest parts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Fat Liar 29 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Jason Shepherd is a habitual liar, making up cheeky and imaginative stories, usually to get out of trouble. He's quite hurt when his parents (understandably) don't believe him when he actually tells the bizarre truth - an unscrupulous Hollywood producer has plagiarised Jason's creative writing assignment and used it as the storyline for a make-or-break potential blockbuster. When Jason encounters the producer, Marty Wolf, it is clear both are accomplished liars and Wolf is like an older version of Jason. But there's one huge difference. Jason lies to get out of homework, but has not one ounce of greed or unpleasantness in him. He doesn't want money or credit for the movie, only that his folks believe him. Wolf lies in persuit of money and success, he is mean and rude, and bullies and tramples people, albeit probably not deliberately. For example to a veteran stuntman: 'See, this is the movie business, Grandpa, the talkies, you know - and you can take your personal day in a year or two, when you're dead.' Jason has the courage of his convictions and persuades best friend Kaylee to help him. They set off on a daring adventure to Hollywood to confront Wolf and make him admit the truth. Jason is so trusting and genuinely believes Wolf will do so. Facing Wolf's ruthlessness and the frustration of not being believed, Jason is almost in tears, and it's hard not to feel sorry for him. Unfortunately in real life it is often hard to find allies or even be believed when wronged. The premise of the movie is at first serious and potentially depressing, but without giving too much away, these plucky teenagers are not going to give up without a fight! They set out to bite Wolf back - BIG TIME!

The movie's comedic side is huge, humorous characters and situations abound, so it's actually hugely enjoyable.
