Fletcher Reede, a fast talking attorney, habitual liar, and divorced father is an incredibly successful lawyer who has built his career by lying. He has a habit of giving precedence to his job and always breaking promises to be with his young son Max, but Fletcher lets Max down once too often, for missing his own son's birthday party. But until then at 8:15 Max has decided to make an honest man out of him as he wishes for one whole day his dad couldn't tell a lie. When the wish comes true all Fletcher can do is tell the truth and cannot tell one lie. Uh-oh for Fletcher!Written by

Audrey takes Max's birthday cake directly out of the box and sets it on the edge of the table. In the next shot it's in the same position, but after that it's on top of a clear plate, and more in the center of the table. She never got a plate or lifted the cake. See more »
Audrey, great news! Both my legs are broken so they can't take me right to jail.

The US network TV version of this movie not only corrects bad language, but also removes all Tower Air titles from the Boeing 747 appearing in the "chase" scene in the end. The only remains on the aircraft are the word "Air" on the fuselage! See more »
This was perhaps my favorite Jim Carrey movie. I found it to be hysterically funny, and Carrey was perfect for the role. His son wishes Carrey can only tell the truth for 24 hours, and it comes true. Unfortunately for Jim, it comes just as he is about to embark on the court case of a lifetime. Watching him go through the motions was a treat, and i guarantee you will love it. You will have to see it to understand, because most of it is too difficult to describe with written words, but it was FUNNY!
