Please let this be Jodelle's last foray into the comedy genre!
Verified purchase
As much as I would like to, I can't give every movie 5 stars simply because it stars Jodelle Ferland. Jodelle plays her part well in this particular role, but honestly her area of expertise is not comedy. She's more of a sci-fi/drama actor in my opinion. Regarding the movie itself, I was kind of shocked that it is marketed towards the younger audiences. The things they did in the movie would have gotten them arrested or thrown in jail. I realize it was a comedy, but what lessons is the movie really teaching young people? That it is okay to lie (if you have a good reason) and it is okay to terrorize someone (once again, if you have a good reason)? And of course, feel no remorse afterwards. Just smile and chuckle. It will all be fine, and you will even be rewarded in the end. My rating for any Jodelle Ferland film goes as follows: start out with 5 stars and go downwards based on poor story/plot. I had to give the movie 3 stars because of the cringey lessons being taught throughout the movie.

Liars never win - Family friendly fun with Bigger Fatter Liar
Verified purchase
A remake of the teen comedy Big Fat Liar (which starred Frankie Muniz and Amanda Bynes) We have Ricky Garcia and Jodelle Ferland taking over the Muniz and Bynes roles. There have been lots of negative reviews about this movie but I can say that there is nothing offensive or off putting about any of the jokes in the movie. I can even go as far as saying it is like a Disney movie that hasn't been made by Disney (it's that family friendly). This movie deals with the world of mobile gaming and the theft of a new gaming concept by a corporate executive. The best parts of the movie is that the two leads remain friends and don't end up as girlfriend / boyfriend at the end of the movie and that the boy has a reasonable motivation for his (white) lying.

The worst
Verified purchase
Don't bother watching. Being a big fat liar goes on for too long -- no redemption happened before we couldn't stand to watch another minute. I felt like crying after watching this; it was such a waste of time.

Good flick
Verified purchase
Great flick where two kids visit a tycoon in San Fran because he stole the idea for a video game and find a way to make him pay for it.

Simple but fun sequel
Verified purchase
Not a bad sequel. A little bit close to the original film but still has some good slapstick comedy.
