| Is it a sequel? A remake? Either way it's fun!
2002's 'Big Fat Liar' will never top a 'best family film ever' list, but was an entertaining enough film that is still remembered with affection by those who grew up watching it.

I was surprised then to see 'Bigger Fatter Liar' appear straight to DVD in 2017.

The film, despite being touted on the DVD box as being a sequel, is really a remake, with the original plot structure and like for like characters (often with slightly amended names) all being adhered to. It feels a little like the later 'Home Alone' films, where 'Kevin-esque' characters were put through their paces.

It's not the mess that others here have made it out to be. There are some nice new original touches (not just changing a film idea being stolen to an app) and the leads are clearly having fun in their roles.

It pales in comparison to the original, but there's a lot to like here.
