Liar Liar - Wrapping Up a Good Lie
Go to the part when Fletcher follows his ex-wife home after she pays to get his car out of the city garage. He says "I'll see Max tonight.If I don't show up I'll glady wrap all of your knick-knacks in bubble paper." He never shows up and doesn't "wrap your knicknacks in bubble paper".
This is obviously a lie.

There is an ACTUAL lie. When his secretary is leaving him she tells him the story about the burglar on the roof, falling through, and so on. He says, "I'da got him ten". Then he says "no no no wait i didn't understand the question, ask me again.." . He understood the question. this is a lie

Well, I gave this slip-up a zero, first of all. But second, you know there is one part of the movie where Fletcher TRULY lies. No, this is not an opinion. When Fletcher is being escorted out by the bailiff, close to the end of the movie, Fletcher screams "I'm Jose Conseco!!" twice. This is a flat out LIE.

Actually, Fletcher really was telling the truth when he said he didn't understand the question. In that scene, his secretary describes how her friend got robbed and the robber sued her and got $6000 out of it and then she asks, "is that justice?" Fletcher replies, "No, I'da got him ten". Fletcher's secretary then storms off angrily and Fletcher claims he didn't understand the question and asks her to ask him again. He truly didn't understand the question because he thought that it was an INJUSTICE that the burglars reward was only $6000 dollars and it would have been justice if he got $10 000.................-Lara

Interesting fact: That burglar falling through the roof story was based on an actual event in California. A man was trying to break into a high school and fell through the roof; he then sued the school and was awarded $6000. The really ironic thing is that this guy probably voted against the bond the school had tried to pass the previous year that would have fixed its decaying roof.

OK. I have finally caved. The part where he yells that he's Jose Conseco, I've come to the conclusion, is not a slip-up. As far as I'm concerned, there is no lying in the whole video. That thing where he says that he didn't understand the question is not a slip-up because we don't know if he understood or not.

OK, about the Jose Conseco thing. He is pretending to be him, but he's supposed to play him when he plays catch with Max. So he says that, because in essence, he "is" Jose Conseco. Maybe it wasn't a lie after all...but I'll leave that up to the reader. :-)

This is NOT a Slip-Up!!! Fletcher was kidding when he said "if he didn't show up, he'd gladly wrap all of Audrey's knick-knacks in bubble paper." Max wished for him not to LIE, not KID AROUND. Big DIFFERENCE!!! KIDDING is not the same as LYING! The Slip-Up about him lying about not understanding Greta's question, is SO NOT a Slip-Up!! He wasn't paying any attention to her question, so that's why he said, "I didn't understand the question, ask me again, ask me again,...." The Slip-Up about him lying about someone beating the heck out of him, STILL NOT a Slip-Up!!! There's ABSOLUTELY NO LYING after Max makes his wish!!! That's the whole point of the movie!!! Fletcher's son (Max) knows that he lies all the time and when his birthday comes, he wishes that Fletcher would stop lying for 24 hours (1 day)! I agree with snakeboy when he said that when Fletcher is describing who beat him up in the washroom ("about 6'4", 180 lbs, big teeth, kind of gangly") that Fletcher was describing himself. That proves wasn't lying about who beat him up. The judge obviously thought he was describing someone ELSE. It's like he was kind of playing along with Fletcher, you might say. Enough said! There's no lying after the wish is made, so there!!!

Dan-he is not lying when he says that he is Jose Conseco. He had promised his son a game of catch, and he was going to be pretending to be Jose Conseco for their game.

You know, it's funny how people can be such nit-pickers. In the movie, you will notice all the times that he goes to lie he can't, that's because he knows he is going to lie before it comes out. Now, if he had a clear mind before the lie came out, then that is probably how he was able to lie like that. Get over it!

I think you all have gotten off topic. I posted this slip-up and I would like you all to comment on THIS slip-up. By the way, if we are to say "He didn't lie," then we must use the same logic with politicians. If they say they are not going to raise taxes but circumstances arise that cause them to have to raise taxes, then they are NOT liars according to this train of thought.

So if I "pretend" to be Babe Ruth, is it true if I tell someone that I am him? No.

Exactly!!! Make-belief. He was pretending, so technically it's a lie.
