Liar Liar

Revealing mistake: When Fletcher is beating himself up he goes into a stall and squishes his head with a toilet seat. You can see that the white part underneath is made out of foam because it keeps squashing down.

Revealing mistake: During the scene when Fletcher pummels himself in the courthouse restroom, the walls shake when he throws himself against them. The restroom walls were some type of marble or granite, and in real life would be very thick and rigid, making it very obvious this was a movie set.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Fletcher drives out of the parking garage almost causing a car accident, you can tell it's his stunt double, because his stunt double is wearing sunglasses and doesn't look too much like Jim Carrey. Then it shows a back view of Fletcher speeding away and his sunglasses are gone.

Suggested correction: There are no sunglasses on the stunt double.

Revealing mistake: In one scene, when Fletcher has the curse and he cannot lie, he's running away from everyone. Then the lift door opens and his boss comes out and she calls him, Fletcher runs away and takes the emergency exits stairway. Just before the door closes after him he bumps into the wall, and it shakes really hard.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie when Max is getting ready to blow out the candles, the shadow on the wall behind the mom comes from a light source that's equal in height to Audrey. Since the candles are the only light source in the room the angle they would cast would be more towards the ceiling.


Factual error: A minor only has a certain amount of time (typically, 6 months) to invalidate a contract entered into when such person was underage once that person turns 18 (or the age of emancipation in that state). This brings up a plot hole: If the marriage was not invalidated because Samantha Cole was underage, the prenuptial agreement would not be either, and Fletcher could not have used that argument to win the case, since he specifically states that she was seventeen at the time of her marriage.

Cop: Is that all?
