Duration: 86 min
Cast: Jim Carrey, Maura Tierney, Justin Cooper, Cary Elwes
IMDB Rating : 6/10

The movie was designed for Jim Carrey, as are all his movies. “Liar, Liar” works very well at three different levels that make it complete, and that also differentiate this movie from any of his ealier works: satire, characters and depth. Yes, there is a “formula” plotline, but that’s the point: Jim Carrey is “satire” to the bone, and what better fun to have than to poke at a familiar 90’s theme without insulting it. The plot is almost identical to “Mrs. Doubtfire” where a great, talented and funny guy is trying to keep his relationship with his kids, while dealing with the ex-wife, keeping his job, etc. And then he goes through an unexpected transformation (here, he can’t lie for a whole day), that ends up teaching him a lesson and giving a happy ending.The emotion and depth in the movie comes from Carrey’s genuine and surprising ability to seem authentically concerned about the issues he’s faced with, from his kid to his career to his facing moral and ethical issues. He shows depth where we don’t expect it, even if only for a short time, and it works. This, in contrast to The Mask, for example, where there was no other interesting or important part of the movie, other than watching him go nuts. Add on top of that his ability to make us laugh through verbal wit, not just his traditional physical antics, and the movie exceeds expectations.
