-Bridging the comedy chasm
Fletcher Reede, a fast talking attorney, habitual liar, and divorced father is an incredibly successful lawyer who has built his career by lying. He has a habit of giving precedence to his job and always breaking promises to be with his young son Max, but Fletcher lets Max down once too often, for missing his own son's birthday party. But until then at 8:15 Max has decided to make an honest man out of him as he wishes for one whole day his dad couldn't tell a lie. When the wish comes true all Fletcher can do is tell the truth and cannot tell one lie. Uh-oh for Fletcher!

When all of this takes place, Jim Carrey's character is in the middle of a major court case where honesty is the opposite of what he needs in order to win. Soon a whole collection of humorous situations arise as a result of his inability to lie to friends, co-workers, bosses, judges, spouse, etc.
Although the film was an entertaining comedy, I must report that Universal has done a pretty sub-standard job with the video quality of this disc. I looks like a standard definition DVD, not like an HD DVD should (and, by the way, I should mention that the bluray looks no better than the HD DVD does).
When it comes to Universal Studios titles, some of their discs look absolutely spectacular and others took pretty darned terrible--and there seems to be no way to tell which of the two it will be without first buying the disc, putting it into your player and just plain seeing what it looks like.
This is one of the lesser quality ones. So, be warned that if you already have the DVD and are looking to upgrade the picture quality, you may be disappointed by either the HD DVD or the bluray version; stick with what you've already got unless Universal does a full remaster first. On the other hand, if you don't have this movie at all--and you can get the hi-def version at virtually the same price as the DVD--you may as well go for it.

A successful lawyer (Jim Carrey) is always missing meetings with his son. Over many times, his son and his ex. wife (Maura Tierney) is upset by this. So his son wishes that on his birthday that his dad couldn't tell a lie for a day. Amazingly, this comes true, and his dad is entered into a void of problems and doesn't play this well. What happens next?
The lead, Jim Carrey, could have played this straight, but its much better in an overacting physical comedy angle. Its a kids movie but it makes me laugh as its so over - the -top. The story is simple, linearly written, and other cast members add a straight balance to this which also works very well. It's not the best film but it's amusing and in these times it, all the better for this!
A great idea as the kid is forever being let down by his Dad but not so good as Jim is in court the following day.
The case he is on looks set to fail as he is unable to lie but he uses his wits in an attempt to win the case for his client.
Well worth watching in my humble opinion.
Not only is Carrey utterly hilarious, incredibly quick, and just plain crazy in this movie, but he is also surrounded by an excellent cast, and all are expertly directed. In fact, everything is just perfect - the camera angles are spot on, the editing is a masterpiece in timing, the script is inspired, and the soundtrack supports it all excellently.
...but enough of the analysis! This movie is a non-stop hoot, yet it is also touching and tender, and even a little philosophical - but ultimately, I watch it again and again to experience Carrey's explosively preposterous comedy - I just have to think of him and it brightens up even the most trying day!
It's a must-see - you'll never forget it, and always grin at recalling it!
This is one of the most funniest films you’ll ever see, and it has also got emotional moments in it too. But not too much, and you’ll probably have red cheeks by the end of the film from all the laughter that proceeded.
Thank you to the makers of this film for making it. Thank you to the sellers who gave me this exhilarating Blu-ray. I used to own this film on VHS, and I still have the DVD copy of it.
