Strong acting from Jim Carrey
The film has an important message in it: it is good to be honest. The film tells a story about a lawyer, Fletcher Reede, a divorced man who is soon going to lose his son, and who also has a habit to lie every day. One day, his son makes a birthday-wish that his father would not lie in a single day. Fletcher has just a tough case at his job, and the next day will turn into a nightmare for him, or doesn't it? ...
The film contains a lot of heavy swearing and strong references to sex, including flirting and a tape where sex voices are played for more than ten seconds. The film is also a comedy, so it does not display it's good message very clearly. These three reasons makes this film not suitable for young children.
