Liar, Liar (starring Jim Carrey)

Starring Jim Carrey as Fletcher Reede, Maura Tierney as Audrey Reede and Jennifer Tilly as Samantha Cole.

Fletcher is a full time liar... I mean, lawyer. A typical day in Fletcher's life involves manipulating his clients, his competition, the justice system, his coworkers and even his own family. However on one fateful day, his son makes a wish, blows out his birthday candles and suddenly Fletcher can't lie anymore. He cursed with the inability to lie for one whole day.

For the most part Fletcher believes this new "handicap" is the worst thing that's ever happened to him. Then he realizes that, by embracing such a duplicitous lifestyle, he has given up everything that is truly valuable. Lying had became a lifestyle for him, thereby causing him to neglect his relational and spiritual health.

It took something as drastic as a magical force to knock some sense into Fletcher. Thanks to this miraculous day, he starts appreciating the value of sincerity and relational openness. He learns that it would be better to lose all the selfish, shallow things he had been clinging to in favor of being open and honest with himself and his loved ones.
