      Tony Scott Variety Liar, Liar makes its point, and if the outcome's not entirely satisfactory, the telefilm has much to say about truth and buried anger. Mar 8, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member When watching a movie review on YouTube, I was recommended the 1997 Jim Carrey comedy "Liar Liar". I searched for the movie, and accidentally found this instead. Without further consideration, I decided to watch it, because it looked descent. I found a good film, but it's anything but funny. Liar, Liar: Between Father and Daughter is a very realistically-portrayed Canadian film about a girl accusing her father of sexual abuse, and her family being torn apart by this. There's court trials, stress, guilt, it's exactly like watching a real life abusive case. And, wouldn't you know, it was actually based on a true story, which doesn't surprise me. The film took many twists and turns, and I was actually starting to doubt the daughter (named Kelly), was telling the truth at one point, though I hated the characters of her father and mother. I won't spoil anything, but the story wraps itself up perfectly. While it may be too realistic and disturbing for some, and some tidbits go nowhere (for example, Kelly makes a boyfriend that only appears twice to cheer her on), this is one of the best films I have ever seen, because it made me feel more than I have in quite some time. Now, if you'll excuse me, i'm going to offset my emotions by watching something more lighthearted.
