'Liar Liar'

Scene from this movie In "Liar Liar," Jim Carrey comes back with a likable vengeance. Although his character has moral problems, thereís a good person just bursting to come out. Heís Fletcher Reede, a chipper, insincere attorney who coaxes his clients into bending the truth, plays the sycophantic game with his superiors, lies to his own secretary and -- worst of all -- avoids family responsibilities.

His wife, Audrey, has divorced him. His son, Max, still adores his father, but even the kid has learned that Dadís an undependable liar. So Max makes a birthday wish that changes things forever: If only Daddy would tell the truth for one day. -- Desson Howe
