Fletcher Reede is a fast-talking attorney and habitual liar. When his son Max blows out the candles on his fifth birthday he has just one wish - that his dad will stop lying for 24 hours. When Max's wish comes true, Fletcher discovers that his mouth has suddenly become his biggest liability.
I do like Jim Carrey, but this film was a disappointment. Carrey's face twisting gets kinda old after Mask and you need something else to make a good film and this film just didn't have that something else. The plot is also kinda plain and I don't really get the whole idea of "rude honesty" in the film. Who says you need to confess farting in the lift in the name of honesty if nobody asks? The little boy's wish that he's dad couldn't lie is cute, though, but they could have made a much, much better film out of it.
