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

This is Jason Bernard's second appearance in a movie about a lawyer under supernatural influence who ends up behaving like a maniac in court. The first was All of Me (1984) starring Steve Martin. See more »

He knocked over another ATM. This time at knife point. He needs your legal advice.

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 »
Jim Carrey is an attorney, who finds putting his family before his work to be a tough challenge, when he fails to show up at his son's birthday party; his son make a wish that prevents him from lying. With a huge career changing case that is based solely on lies about to go to trial, he is stuck in an unfamiliar position, that may just change his life.
Jim Carrey is on top form for this one, giving one of his most hilarious performances to date, he is well supported by the likes of Jennifer Tilly, Swoosie Kurtz and Amanda Donohue, and the winning concept of the movies theme realises its potential.
7/10 Great fun
