This review is from: Liar Liar [DVD]  (DVD)
Whether you love or hate this film will all depend on whether you love or hate Jim Carey. So obviously written as a vehicle for the rubber faced star this film gives Carey ample opportunity to show of his own particular brand of comic goofing around and take advantage of this he certainly does. Hardly a scene goes by without him playing up to his slapstick best and pulling a multitude of awesome facial expressions.
Both the plot and the other cast members are simply scenery to the outrageous Carey and although you could analyse the plot's morality on the subject of how many lies the average adult tells, it is really nothing more than a backdrop to how many crazy situations the film makers can place Carey's character. The supporting cast are fine in the small roles they have, Justin Cooper as Carey's son puts on a great performance for one so young (nice haircut by the way!) and I though Cary Elwes as Carey's ex-wife's new boyfriend provided the one or two poignant moments very nicely.
But there is no doubt who the star is and Carey certainly is on top form in this film. I began the review by saying you would love it or hate depending on your feelings about Carey, but I would challenge even the most ardent critic of Jim Carey to get through this film without laughing. Good Fun!

What a load of rubbish! To not like this film you must be a boring, miserable person.
This is hilarious. Easily Jims best film ever.
