More salacious than I remember it to be, embarrassing with kids

Saw this years ago with people my own age and thought it was funny, was hoping to watch 'dumb and dumber' on Netflix with the kids but not available so we watched 'Liar Liar' instead. Cringy and embarrassing a lot of the time with my 9 and 13 year old sons, a lot of sex talk, too much for even my 13 year old like, 'You're so pathetic you couldn't even get a porn star off' which had him giving me strange looks, like what was it I had him watching. Lots of stuff like that. Funny, but uncomfortable watching.

Would be a great family film if they hadn't added all the adult themes and sex

This could be a great family movie if they removed the sexual discussions and moaning recording. It has a great message about being truthful and appreciating your family and time with family. I think the sex scenes and discussions of sex are out of place in a family movie about a kid wishing his dad would spend more time with him and be more reliable. It should really be rated over age 13.

a mixed message

I'd give this 2 1/2 stars if I could. It's all well and good that Max wishes, for his birthday, that his father (Jim Carrey's character), Fletcher, would go through an entire day without telling a lie and only tell the truth, and it's also well and good that Fletcher is able to do just that. But that should be done every day, not just one day a year. The message of this movie is morally ambiguous. Know your young adolescent before renting this movie.

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.

Not for young viewers

There is a recording in court of sex sounds and there is some other sexual content. A lot of language too. It get's a heavy PG-13.

very entertaining/well-acted...BUT it's PG-13 for a reason

I made the mistake (on a recommendation from my 8yo kid's friend's mom) of showing this to my 8 and 10yo kids. i'm no prude, but i was shocked...prob because i was expecting a PG experience...this was my fault for going on a recommendation instead of following through w researching it myself. we got through 1/3 of it and my kids basically asked me to turn it off... swear words? was not cool but ok (for my kids) ass pinching? was weird for my kids full on mounting and one person stripping the clothes off the other (in a "violent" manner) was disturbing for my kids to watch (esp my 10yo)...and it was at this point I turned it off. and looked at the rating. and saw I had made a mistake.
