In this movie, Jim Carrey portrays Fletcher Reede, a successful defense lawyer who will do anything to win his cases including lying. Fletcher and his ex-wife Audrey (Maura Tierney) have a five year old son named Max (Justin Cooper). Although Fletcher loves his son intensely, his work always gets in the way when it comes time to spend time with Max. When Fletcher fails to show up at his son's sixth birthday party, Max makes a wish that his dad will not be able to lie for one day. The movie becomes hilarious when Max's wish comes true, and Fletcher cannot stop himself from telling the truth, even during an important trial. However, during the movie, Fletcher realizes that Max is the most important thing in his life and maybe lying is not so nice after all.
