Liar Liar

Audio problem: When Fletcher gives Max his birthday gift, the shot changes as Fletcher starts to say, "I hope it's not partially digested." When Fletcher's face comes into that shot, you can see that his lips aren't moving.

Audio problem: When Fletcher is trying to settle the case his client yells at him saying things like "I'm the victim here". In the behind shot of her head you can see that her lips don't match what she's saying.

Cop: Do you know why I pulled you over?
Fletcher Reede: It depends on how long you were following me!
Cop: Why don't we just start from the top?
Fletcher Reede: Here it goes. I sped, I followed too closely, I ran a stop sign, I almost hit a Chevy, I sped some more, I failed to yield at a crosswalk, I changed lanes at an intersection, I changed lanes without signaling while running a red light and SPEEDING!
Cop: Is that all?
Fletcher Reede: [Forced.] No. I have unpaid parking tickets.

Trivia: When Jim Carrey goes to his son's school and reveals that he cannot lie, his son asks him some questions, one being "If I make this face will it get stuck that way?", while of course making a funny face. Then Jim Carrey responds with, "Uh Uh, in fact some people make a good living that way". Do you think the second part of the line is in reference to himself? I think so... (00:42:31)

Question: After Fletcher gets his son to try to unwish the "No lying" wish, he tests to see if it works. He gets slapped in the face. When his son asks "Did it work?", Fletcher says, "Not as well as I had hoped." What did he mean by that?

Answer: As you said, he was testing to see if the wish was broken--by going up to an attractive woman and talking to her. While we don't hear what happens, he apparently said something a little too "forward" to her (probably more forward than he would have done otherwise, hence the "not as well as I had hoped"), and got slapped, so he knew that he was still under the wish's effects.

But I want to know what he said to the woman.

It's deliberately made unclear what he specifically said, because him getting slapped in the face is the gag that shows the audience that he's still under the spell. If we heard what he said, then we would know right away the new wish wouldn't have worked. It's ultimately up to the viewer's imagination to decide what he told the woman.
