Hollywood's insatiable drive towards commodifying every possible notion of sacrality, under the pretentious garb here of human hubris, is given a humorous twist through Jim Carey's endlessly kinetic grimaces and the scatological satire about human animality. The result is that the cliché of a God of different color contrary to the white hegemonic frame reproduces the standard platitudes about divine power and wisdom.
Wondering if this is a guilty pleasure or not. And what constitutes a guilty pleasure or not. Liar Liar is a good comedy, I guess, not just a guilty pleasure. This may get the third star if I ever watch it again and still laugh. Guess right now the category is a dangerous wishfullfilment kinda exercize.
Could have been a great update of "The Man who could work miracles" but how is it possible for this film to do so little with a man with infinite power and it would have been more interesting to see him come to terms with his powers going bonkers by it or bored. It is annoying when he doesn't really get changed by anything as if he is still playing the same crazy Jim Carrey before he got the powers.
