Liar Liar

Other mistake: When Fletcher is attempting to force himself to write the word "red" on his desk, in the shot before the "blue" is revealed, his pen is not even touching the desk and his final pen movement is a curve which doesn't correspond to an exclamation point.

Suggested correction: He had already finished writing "blue!" by the time we see the shot of him holding the pen off the desk. He was probably making the motion of writing "red" (with the curve you see corresponding to the "d") not realizing that the pen wasn't touching the desk, and not realizing that he had already finished writing "blue." Hence his initial gleeful reaction-he thinks he's successfully beat the spell, until he sees the writing and realises he hasn't.

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.

Continuity mistake: Fletcher checks his watch before he tells Max "It's 8:45". But in the last shot of the scene, as he hugs Max, his watch comes into view and shows 5:45.

Suggested correction: Watch shows 8:45 all the way.

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.

Trivia: In the scene where Carrey is in the stretcher at the airport, if you look in the back of the crowd to the right, you will see Fire Marshall Bill from In Living Color. He can be seen when Carrey's ex-wife is speaking to the officer speaking on a walkie-talkie. (01:16:11)

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.
