Mindless teen hijinks; mild slapstick action, cursing.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Bigger Fatter Liar is a follow-up movie to the successful Big Fat Liar, a 2002 family comedy. This new movie is not a sequel; rather it's the same story as the original set in a different cultural arena. Big Fat Liar pitted a teen against a Hollywood mogul who had stolen his idea. This film pits a teen against a video game executive who steals his idea. There's slapstick action throughout -- some falls, a wild car ride, suspense created by an oncoming train, a fight, a car hitting a teen. There are no injuries, and nothing is to be taken seriously. Expect mild cursing ("smart-ass," "crap") and some insults and potty language ("idiots," "moron," "pee," "dummy"). One scene takes place in a down-and-dirty bar with drinking and menacing characters. The teen heroes spike the villain's smoothie with a knockout drug. Honesty and trustworthiness are the values promoted; however, most of the film shows the various characters behaving dishonestly and unethically and breaking the law. This film is not recommended.
