In this uproarious hit from the director and producers of The Nutty Professor, comic genius Jim Carrey stars as a fast-talking attorney and habitual liar who, forced by his son's birthday wish, must tell the truth for the next 24 hours. With Maura Tierney (ER) Jennifer Tilly, Swoosie Kurtz and Amanda Donohoe co-starring, this great film is a laugh-a-minute.

Goofy '90s Carrey comedy has lots of profanity, sex.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Liar Liar is a 1997 comedy starring Jim Carrey as an attorney who is both dishonest at work and at home and is taught a lesson when his son wishes that he be forced to tell the truth for one whole day. This film contains a scene in which a character beats himself up very badly. There is also a seduction scene, though without any nudity or actual sex. During a courtroom scene, a tape recording presented as evidence plays a man and a woman having loud and passionate sex. There is frequent profanity, including "s--t," and a series of euphemisms for sex. In an elevator, Fletcher makes suggestive comments about a woman's large breasts. At work, a coworker asks, "How's it hangin'?," and Fletcher says, "Short, shriveled, and a little to the left." Expect reckless driving in one scene. While Fletcher is in jail, his secretary makes a joke about prison molestation.
