More quotes from Liar Liar

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: Wouldn't lying about your age constitute as fraud? If so, why was Samantha Cole let completely off the hook?

Answer: First of all, she's not "on the hook" anyway...this is a divorce proceeding, not a criminal trial. And second, this film has multiple inaccuracies in its depiction of the legalities involved (see Legal Eagle's two-part analysis on YouTube for a very good rundown); the fact that no-one brings up fraud is the least of them. It's not important to the plot, so it is simply brushed aside, counting on us (the audience) not worrying too much about it, like so many other lapses of reality in comedy movies.
