I watched this Jim Carrey vehicle again recently and still found it exquisitely amusing. It’s not quite as funny as Dumb & Dumber, but still has plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.
Carrey was nominated for a Golden Globe – Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical – for his rubber-faced turn as a lawyer who can’t stop lying. His son makes a wish that he can’t tell a lie for a whole day, and the wish – of course – is granted. The film is one of three collaborations between Jim Carrey and director Tom Shadyac, along with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Bruce Almighty. I’d say this is funnier than either.
