This week for Movie Monday I’m back with another comedy film. It’s Liar Liar!
Plot: The plot is okay, but keeps in line with the tone of other movies of Carrey’s that were released around the same time like Ace Ventura and Dumb and Dumber. Frankly it’s not that great as a story, with a very thin plot premise about not being able to lie at all, but it does well because of the cast.
Casting: The lead is of course Jim Carrey who plays Fletcher Reede, a lawyer and divorced father. Maura Tierney plays Audrey his ex. The cast is pretty good, but frankly Carrey carries, and pun sort of intended there, the movie with his exuberance and physicality that draws in the viewer more than almost any other character.
Cinematography: There isn’t any special effects worth noting really, but it wasn’t vomit inducing to watch so it doesn’t fail in terms of cinematography.
Music: The music fits the movie, which is all that needs be said. It’s not memorable, but it’s not something that made me want to bash my head against a wall to forget.
Overall: A fun movie, but somewhat forgettable.
For those who like: Comedy, Drama, Jim Carrey.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
