Where did you watch this movie?

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 favorite 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!

Trust Me
Would I lie to you?
Coming soon. Honest.
Revealing Mistakes
In the scene where Fletcher encounters Miranda in the elevator, and flees through the stairwell, the false wall labeled "21st Floor Roof Access" visibly shakes as he bounces off it.

Revealing Mistakes
The toilet noticeably flexes seen when Fletcher smashes his head between it and the seat.

Audio/Video Mismatch
In the scene where Fletcher gets his car towed and arrives at his wife's house in a taxi, he throws cash at the driver from the back seat. The sound does not match the throwing of the cash.

In the scene where right before he gets pulled over by the police, Fletcher passes the same maroon Ford Taurus twice.

In the scene where Audrey is about to put candles on Max's Birthday cake, she takes the candles out of the box and puts them on the counter. In the next shot they're in the cake.

In the courtroom scene, Fletcher drinks 5 glasses of water. But the amount of water in the pitcher stays the same.

In the scene where Fletcher goes to the bathroom to beat himself up, he is clearly wearing a different suit than in the courtroom.

In the scene where Audrey tells Jerry about "the Claw", she's holding her right arm when seen from behind, but her left arm (almost at the wrist) when seen from the front.
Jim Carrey declined the role of Dr Evil in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997) so he could be committed only to this film.

In an interview with Jim Carrey, he says that the gag of Fletcher chasing his son as "The Claw" was something Carrey's father did to him and his siblings.

Steve Martin turned down the lead role in this film as he had scheduling conflicts with another film.

Liar Liar is dedicated to Jason Bernard who played his last role in this film and shortly after died of a heart attack.
