Set in an era where superheroes are commonly known and accepted, young William Stronghold, the son of the Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.
A take on the classic tale "The Boy Who Cried Wolf", this is the story of a 14-year-old boy named Jason Shephard who lies for the fun of it. He leaves an important story assignment entitled "Big Fat Liar" in movie producer Marty Wolf's limo, which Marty then turns into a film. When Jason sees a movie preview of his story, he and his best friend, Kaylee, travel to Los Angeles to make Marty confess to using his story, to clear his name, and to get him out of having to attend summer school. Jason then has to match wits with Marty, who also turns out to be a big liar.Written by
Marty (Paul Giamatti) tells Jason (Frankie Muniz) that he will call his dad and tell him he wrote "Big Fat Liar, Erin Brockovich (2000), and Saving Private Ryan (1998)." Giamatti played Sergeant Hill in Saving Private Ryan (1998) and had a cameo scene with Julia Roberts (whom won the Academy Award for Erin Brockovich (2000)) in My Best Friend's Wedding (1997).

Jason liberally applies a super glue-type product to the earpiece of Marty's cell phone hands-free set. Any type of super glue product should dry pretty quickly after it's applied. MArty finished swimming and took a shower as well as freaked out when he saw himself. By the time he stuck the ear piece into his ear, the glue should have at least been tacky if not dry. It would have been "easily" removable. See more »

The DVD contains a few deleted and extended scenes, including an extended scene of when they are filming the chicken movie, an extended scene at Marty's party, a deleted scene at the end were a big crate falls on Marty's car, and an additional scene that is part of the takedown sequence where the gatekeeper won't let Marty into the studio.

Works best for kids, but parents won't be put-down by it either
Big Fat Liar is the type of movie I would've liked even more if I was younger and by that I reccomend this movie to the kids and if the parents don't want to go see Collateral Damage or Black Hawk Down or whatever, they might chuckel as well.
Frankie Muniz plays a young teen who is usually lying a lot, and when he really looses a paper for school in a movie producer's (Paul Giamatti's) limo and winds up in summer school, he decides to go with his girlfriend (Amanda Bynes) to Hollywood to confront him. But it isn't as easy as he thought for him to fess up. Giamatti's blue man scenes are some of the funniest scenes he's had in movies since Private Parts. Other scenes vary on the person, however. Grade: B
