Big Fat Liar [P&S] [DVD] [2002]

Wackiness ensues in the kid's comedy Big Fat Liar. The film is presented in a cropped 1.33:1 full-frame ratio that looks excellent. Aside of the picture being a pan-and-scan version, the image displays vibrant colors and dark black levels. Without any defects or imperfections marring the image, this transfer should please fans (read: kids) of the film. The soundtrack is presented in both Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and DTS Surround, both in English. Each of these tracks are very full and bombastic with the music score (mostly pop songs) coming in loud and clear. All aspects of the mix are free and clear of any excessive hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc is a Dolby 5.1 track in French, as well as English and Spanish subtitles. The extra features on this edition of Big Fat Liar are plentiful enough to keep children busy for hours. Starting off the disc are two commentary tracks, one by director Shawn Levy and a second by star Frankie Muniz. Each of these tracks offer a good deal of production information and anecdotes about the film's shoot. A short behind-the-scenes featurette is nothing more than a fluffy extended trailer for the film. Finally, there are some Spyro video game tips, as well as a handful of deleted scenes which offer little insight into the story or characters.

Big Fat Liar
Former co-stars of the TV sitcom Head of the Class teamed up to write the story and script for this teen comedy. When junior high-school student Jason Shepherd (Frankie Muniz) realizes that his class paper has been ripped off and turned into a hit motion picture called "Big Fat Liar," he takes matters into his own hands. Along with his best friend, Kaylee (Amanda Bynes), Jason travels to Los Angeles, where he intends to confront Hollywood big shot Marty Wolf (Paul Giamatti), the sleazy producer responsible for ripping him off. When he's unable to get Wolf to do the right thing, Jason subjects the showbiz power broker to a series of humiliating pranks and stunts designed to make an honest man out of him. Big Fat Liar co-stars Lee Majors and Amanda Detmer. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
