Really likeable family comedy set in cutthroat Hollywood.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Big Fat Liar is a funny take on ruthlessness in Hollywood full of puerile pratfall humor and name-calling. There are instances of bullying throughout the film -- especially at the beginning -- and the character stereotypes (dumb jock, senile grandmother) are plentiful. While the madcap antics of Frankie Muniz, Amanda Bynes and Paul Giamatti will appeal to kids and grown-ups, lessons on the importance of being honest are found amid all the silliness.
