I have to admit, I'm probably a little biased with this movie, as itcontains two of the things I love the most in any movie; court scenes andJim Carrey. I'll try my best to be objective in this review, though. Theplot is good, and as the film barely takes 90 minutes it's fairlyfast-paced(well, for a Jim Carrey comedy, anyway); I don't think there everpasses 5 minutes without one single joke. The acting is fairly good; JimCarrey is in his element, so it's no surprise that he's good, but I did findboth Maura Tierney and Cary Elwes pretty good too. I know that Elwes isEnglish, not American, and after seeing another movie in which he has astrong English accent(Robin Hood: Men in Tights), I was impressed at howwell he does American parts as well. The characters are well-written andcredible. The humor is great, partly because it's, well, Carrey, but alsobecause unlike some of Carrey's previous roles, this is fairly "clean", soteenagers and some kids will be able to enjoy it as well. The theme of thefilm is great; I mean, we all know that we lie several times a day(heck,it's even been scientifically proved), but what about if we, for one wholeday, couldn't tell one single lie? Great theme, provokes some thought and isexecuted fairly well in the film, though I do think it could have been donea tad better. Overall, I don't have any major complaints with the filmthough; I guess it could be argued that most of what Carrey does in thisfilm, the comedy and all, is stuff he's done before, but that's OK; it's notany less entertaining here, regardless of the fact that we've seen it(orsomething similar to it) earlier. The dialog is great, with some verymemorable and quotable lines. All in all, a typical Carrey film, which canbe a good thing as well as bad; Carrey does exactly what you expect him to,and he's very entertaining and all, but it never transcends the standardlevel of the typical Carrey comedy. On a final note, I think this(as well ashis other work) proves that Tom Shadyac is the best there is at bringing outCarrey's talents(he also directed Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and BruceAlmighty).I recommend it to any fan of Jim Carrey and/or Tom Shadyac.7/10

Not since Cary Grant mugged outrageously throughout 'Arsenic and Old Lace' has another actor accomplished what Jim Carrey does here. In one of his more plausible, more restrained comedy roles--(restrained???--well for Carrey anyway)--he does wonders with voice, looks, expressions and double takes. The storyline is a slim one--can a lawyer who tells lies (seemingly for a living) tell the truth for 24 hours? It's a cute premise and is given its full potential thanks to a witty script and the right actor in the lead. Nobody else in the cast registers strongly because it's pretty much a one man show. Carrey delivers a knockout performance.
It never pretends to be anything more than a lighthearted comedy--and it succeeds merrily. By all means, give it a whirl.
Jim Carrey proves once again his prowess for physical, slapstick comedy in this hysterically funny film about a lawyer who finds himself unable to lie. As a fan of the show, "In Living Color," I enjoyed Carrey immensely when he was at his zaniest, doing just about anything for a laugh. This movie allows him to let everything hang out without being overly silly (like in "Dumb and Dumber" and "The Mask", and he hits all the right marks. A perfect movie for when you want to just sit back and laugh, his performance is brilliant. Justin Cooper, the little boy who plays his son is absolutely adorable. Maura Tierney does a bang-up job as Carrey's ex, and she plays the straight role to a tee. Swoosie Kurtz and Jennifer Tilly, and Amanda Donohoe are tailor-made for their roles and add the perfect flavor to this delicious film. I loved it.
