Quite possibly my favorite Jim Carrey role
This was perhaps my favorite Jim Carrey movie. I found it to be hysterically funny, and Carrey was perfect for the role. His son wishes Carrey can only tell the truth for 24 hours, and it comes true. Unfortunately for Jim, it comes just as he is about to embark on the court case of a lifetime. Watching him go through the motions was a treat, and i guarantee you will love it. You will have to see it to understand, because most of it is too difficult to describe with written words, but it was FUNNY!

*** 1/2 out of ****

Trivia

The filmmakers purposely chose not to explain why the wish came true.


Quotes

Max Reede: Is wrestling real?
Fletcher: In the Olympics, yes. On channel 23, no.


Goofs

When pulled over by the motorcycle cop, Fletcher admits to unpaid parking tickets and opens the glove box of the car and the tickets all fall out. This is impossible since the Mercedes SL-Class (R129) series, including Fletcher's SL500, never were fitted with glove boxes due to interior space limitations. The dashboard shown in this scene is actually that of a 1993 Mercedes 300SE/500SEL (W140). This is made obvious by the fact that later, when Fletcher is accusing the car impound guy of scratching his car, the entire dashboard is noticeably different from how it is during the parking ticket scene, as is the rest of the interior.


Crazy Credits

Outtakes are shown during the credits.


Alternate Versions

Randall 'Tex' Cobb's role (as "Skull) was considerably shortened prior to release. Originally filmed was a courtroom prologue where Fletcher successfully defends Skull using his usual, less-than-truthful tactics. Also filmed was a sequence in the jail where Fletcher meets Skull again in jail. The courtroom prologue was dropped entirely, but remnants of it still remain in the original theatrical trailers. The jail-cell scene was shortened, so much so that Cobb only has one line in the entire film, despite a prominent billing. The prologue is featured in the 'deleted scenes' section of the Special Edition DVD release.
