Black SplatLiar Liar (1997)

"You Liar!"

Liar Liar - Car Troubles

Description - Jim Carrey as Fletcher Reede expresses his true feelings to a motor pool guy who claims he didn't scratch Fletcher's car in the motion picture Liar Liar (1997). Fletcher's full rant:

“YOU LIAR! You know what I’m going to do about this...Absolutely nothing, because if I go to court, it’ll just drain eight hours of my life I’ll never get back, and you’ll probably stiff me anyway. So I’m just going to moan and complain like some impotent jerk, and take it up the tailpipe”

Fletcher is a lawyer and an habitual liar. At home, he constantly promises his son he will do things with him, but he inevitably forgets because he is too busy at work.

Max Reede:
My dad? He's..a liar.
A liar? I'm sure you don't mean a liar.
Max Reede:
Well, he wears a suit and goes to court and talks to the judge.
Oh, you mean he's a lawyer.

Well, one day, Fletcher fails to come to his son's birthday party, as promised and so when Max blows out the candles on his birthday cake, he makes simple wish - that for only one day, his dad couldn't tell a lie. And do you know what? The wish came true, much to the chagrin of Fletcher whose life as a lawyer was about to be turned upside down.

The next day, as Fletcher passes his coworkers, he can no longer lie to them. When a fat coworker says. "What's up?" Fletcher says "Your cholesterol, fatty! Dead man walkin'!" Another coworker asks, "Do you like my new dress?" and Fletcher replies, "What ever takes the focus off your head!" And when a client who had robbed an ATM at knife point calls for legal advice, Fletcher picks up the phone and shouts, "Stop breaking the law, asshole!"

Liar Liar - Fletcher gets a ticket

On the street, Fletcher is pulled over by a policeman. When the officer asks, "Do you know why I pulled you over?" poor Fletcher couldn't help but tell the truth:

"Here goes: I sped. I followed too closely. I ran a stop sign. I almost hit a Chevy. I sped some more. I failed to yield at a crosswalk. I changed lanes at the intersection. I changed lanes without signaling while running a red light and *speeding*!

"Is that all?" The policeman inquired. "No... I have unpaid parking tickets," added Fletcher. Groaning Fletcher pleads, "Be gentle."

In court, Fletcher's inability to tell a lie really messes with his legal presentations. At one point, he calls the opposing council a hag. But it is in the corporate boardroom where Fletcher really goes crazy, calling his fellow lawyers all sorts of insulting names. Luckily, his boss takes his outrageous conduct as a big joke.

Liar Liar - Boardroom Antics

Well, what do you think of him?
He's a pedantic, pontificating, pretentious bastard, a belligerent old fart, a worthless steaming pile of cow dung, figuratively speaking.
Mr. Allen:
That's the funniest damn thing I've ever heard. You're a real card, Reede. I love a good roast! Do Simmons!
Simmons is old! He should've been out of the game years ago but he can't stay home because he hates his wife! You've met her at the Christmas parties. She's the one that gets plastered and calls him a retard! And you, Tom, you're the biggest brownnose I've ever seen! You've got your head so far up Mr. Allen's ass, I can't tell where you end and he begins!
Mr. Allen:
[roaring with laughter] Priceless!
You have bad breath caused by gingivitis. You couldn't get a porn star off. Your hairpiece looks like something that was killed crossing the highway. I don't know whether to comb it or scrape it off with a shovel and bury it in lime. Loser! Idiot! Wimp! Degenerate!
[to Miranda] *Slut*!
Mr. Allen:
I like your style, Reede! That's just what this stuffy company needs - a little irreverence!
Good! I'll see you later, dick-head!

At home, Max asks tells his dad "My teacher tells me beauty is on the inside. " Fletcher still under the spell confides, "That's just something ugly people say."

Eventually, the 24 hours pass and Fletcher is back to normal. But during that short time, Fletcher learned a valuable lessons about honesty and truth and keeping his word to his little boy.
