    An adaptation of the original that was less effective and far less enjoyable.

    I grew up with the original 2002 box-office hit “Big Fat Liar” and when I found out about this, I thought “Why not give it a shot?” I watched the film online for free and I surprisingly enjoyed it. To me, the acting wasn’t really that bad, the characters were pretty awesome (not as awesome as the ones in the original) and the fate of Larry Wolf was awesome as well. That’s all I have to say!

    This one is bad. Real Bad. If you liked the original, this so-called sequel will make the original movie seem fantastic, largely because the original was actually quite good.The film is about a typical compulsively-lying teenager named Kevin Shepard (Garcia) who creates the idea for a video game called ‘Big Fat Liar’ as part of a school assignment. In a chance encounter, entertainment executive Larry Wolf’s (Bostwick) limo hits Shepard on his bike. Wolf steals the paper, and then attempts to use Shepard’s stolen idea to create a video game which he thinks will please his boss and earn him a promotion to company president. As a result, Wolf and his best friend Becca (Ferland) embark on an adventure in an effort to force Wolf to admit his lie and give Shepard the credit he deserves.I will start with the positives, although there weren’t many positive things to say about this film. There were a couple of chuckle-worthy moments and at times the actors did decent for what they had to work with. At face value, Bostwick was by no means bad at all in his role, and neither were the other main characters. When compared to the originals, however, this is a different story.On the negative side, this movie is loaded to the brim. The script is terrible. The cinematography barely nicks the bottom of average. The result was a very cheap feel, especially when compared to the original ‘Big Fat Liar.’ That leads me to perhaps the most egregious sin of this movie: other than some minor changes and a recast, it is merely a poorly regurgitated, or perhaps you could say thrown-up, version of the original.Part of the reason that the original was so good was because of Paul Giamatti’s outstanding portrayal of Marty Wolf. Despite being a Hollywood powerhouse and a very authoritative figure in cinema, Marty Wolf has a weak, childish, and downright weird side to him that is truly hilarious to watch. They were clearly aiming to create the same character in this film, but fell short. While Bostwick did decent with what he had, he clearly wasn’t meant for this role. When they tried to show the “weird” side of Larry Wolf, it didn’t work. It simply felt forced.The Wolfs (both Marty and Larry) are what both of these movies are truly about. They are the cornerstone characters. Paul Giamatti is a tough, if not nearly impossible act to follow. And because of the weakness of Bostwick’s character in the sequel, it really leaves the awful remainder of the movie hanging by a mere thread of terribleness.In summary, this movie is really bad. When you consider that the moral of this film is the importance of telling the truth, it is quite ironic that this movie being branded as a “sequel” is a big fat lie itself. If you haven’t seen either film, don’t bother watching ‘Bigger Fatter Liar.’ However, if you have seen the original, I would actually recommend that you watch this one- it will show you how the original ‘Big Fat Liar’ was actually a surprisingly good film.

    This movie is a trainwreck, it’s the same thing as Big Fat Liar. They both get hit by a car, get their idea stolen, have the same characters, have the same antics and pranks they did on the first movie. The ending is the same to. They were so greedy with this movie. DO NOT WATCH!!!!!!!!!!

    It’s hard to follow Paul Giamatti. He’s a comedic genius. In the first BFL movie, he had us all rolling on the floor laughing. The guy who plays the BFL in this movie tries but doesn’t come close to even being funny. He’s about as funny as a sore throat.One highlight, and this makes it worth it to see the movie, is Jodelle Ferland who is one of the most beautiful young women on the planet yet it doesn’t seem that she knows it thereby making her seem sweet and vulnerable. She plays the Amanda Bynes character. Amanda was an exciting actress, but Jodell is just fantastic to watch.

    This Complete excuse for a sequel/reboot of a classic movie. the beginning of the movie is pretty much a cheap ripoff of the original. the acting is played out like a mellow dramatic old time film with out good morals. i give a grade A by the attempt of mimicking Amanda Bynes and Frankie Muniz performance, consider it a Saturday Night Live skit of the original. Luckily this was a direct to video release otherwise this film could have ruined their careers as actors

    This film simply reuse the script from the original “Big Fat Liar” with only minor changes. Problem is they use much less talented actors and the writer/actor Ron Oliver must have gone crazy since he peaked his career in the 1980:s. This is simply a lousy attempt to earn a few dollars by using the name of an old popular film. I ought to claim compensation from the production company for totally ruining 1½ hours of my life.

    Can I just say that this is the worst remake ever? Yeah remake, it isn’t even an original story or a part 2. The game ‘big fat liar’ (the only difference is that it’s a game now. Oh and the bad guy turned a mime instead of a smurf) wasn’t even good or original. It’s just a boring catch the falling money game. And there a thousands of them. The game kept crashing which didn’t make sense at all. There could’ve been bugs, but crashing? Seriously? I get that you wanted to make it kid friendly, but at least make it realistic. The limousine had these screens outside of it and the bad guy was supposed to not notice it being screens? Yeah, right… If you’ve seen big fat liar (the original) don’t watch this one. If you haven’t, go watch the original.

    Just the worst film I’ve ever seen. We watched the first one and loved it, so we decided to watch this one the next day. What a BIG mistake. Word for word, concept for concept, exactly the same as the first one, even down to the guy being called ‘Wolf’ and his secretary saving the day in the end. Except with fewer jokes.Seriously, just don’t. This is an hour and a half of your life you will NEVER get back. Literally go and have a nap instead or something. Disgraceful.

    ”Big Fat Liar” was a fine kids film. sure it was slow & sometime irritating, but it had energy & some appeal & it’s hilarious & unexpected to see Paul Giamatti painted blue acting crazy.This film however is another story.The film is basically the same story, except they changed things up a bit for the modern audience…and it f*cking sucks at it.Kevin Shepard (Ricky Garcia) is basically Frankie Muniz from the first movie, who has a difficult relationship with his dad (Paul McGillion).After he gets hit by greedy & idiotic video game Larry Wolf (Barry Bostwick), Larry steals Kevin’s idea of a concept for a video game titled Big Fat Liar, so Kevin & his best friend Becca (Jodelle Ferland) to attempt to get back at him for taking his idea.Can you see why this plot can’t work.Not only does the plot sound the same, but it fails to be original, leading to a bunch of clichés. Secondly, There are plot holes that will cause people to dismiss this as a sequel. Just like Kindergarten Cop 2, Universal Home Entertainment hired other actors and have the same plot to try to pass it off as a sequel.But that is NOT what a sequel is.A sequel is a narrative, documental, or other work of literature, film, theatre, television, music, or video game that continues the story of, or expands upon, some earlier work. In the common context of a narrative work of fiction, a sequel portrays events set in the same fictional universe as an earlier work, usually chronologically following the events of that work.i know pasting that was a big waste of time, but sequels continue the story of existing media.this film feels more like a remake then a sequel cause aside from changing the characters first name, they steal keep their last names & the did cause the writers are lazy and can’t think of another way to continue the story.The acting is also kinda off. First off, Ricky Garcia sounds & acts like he’s being sarcastic whenever he’s on screen. & Barry Bostwick’s performance is so phoned in that he’s obviously trying to be the greedy douche boss. The reason why this character’s motivation is terrible is cause his position as the head of interactive gaming makes no sense.Who the hell hired that douche who is greedy, yells at his employees & assistant, and is a total phony as well. Becca who’s played by Jodelle Ferland is just Amanda Bynes but nothing much really. most of the side character arn’t important & rather stupid. & Kevin O’Grady is trying to be Donald Faison but isn’t funny.in fact, the film has a bunch of cheep & stupid jokes that make no sense and waste much of the film’s time. & trying to recreate jokes from the first movie. Like the famous scene from the first film where Paul Giamatti is blue, Barry Bostwick’s face is painted white. & the scene where he get’s in a fight with a Hugh Mungus (:3) guy and get’s his car towed away, it sorta happens here but with a police officer admitting it’s his FIRST day of the job.a scene where Larry makes a inaccurate speech about America sorta sums up the greedy liberals & conservatives. Did Big Fat Liar ever need a sequel?No!with a rehashed plot, weak performances, poor writing, tired clichés, confusing plot holes, unfunny jokes & lazy editing, it’s obvious that Universal wanted to try & make people remember Big Fat Liar by what else…Make a follow up 15 years later!this is a weak film that u shouldn’t exactly funny and you probably should just rent it, but buying the DVD & figuring out you own it years later, you’ll probably forget immediately.Bigger Fatter Liar isn’t a terrible movie, but it’s a forgettable direct to video feature follow up that really had no reason to exist.so go away, i’m eating a cookie – Duke Wilson

    I think the original movie must have been too successful for the writers/producers/directors/stakeholders because they literally took the script of the first and using copy and replace inserted the words “video game app” instead of “movie”. Then they examined the jokes and removed all lead up and background but left the punch lines. They even added a couple of nods to the original which fall completely flat because this movie IS the original if the original were made badly. I’m not exaggerating. Watch it. Lament the bitter taste it leaves in your mouth as it attempts to rewrite your fond memories of Big Fat Liar with it’s blatant and very poorly done plagiarism of the original.

    2002’s ‘Big Fat Liar’ will never top a ‘best family film ever’ list, but was an entertaining enough film that is still remembered with affection by those who grew up watching it.I was surprised then to see ‘Bigger Fatter Liar’ appear straight to DVD in 2017.The film, despite being touted on the DVD box as being a sequel, is really a remake, with the original plot structure and like for like characters (often with slightly amended names) all being adhered to. It feels a little like the later ‘Home Alone’ films, where ‘Kevin-esque’ characters were put through their paces.It’s not the mess that others here have made it out to be. There are some nice new original touches (not just changing a film idea being stolen to an app) and the leads are clearly having fun in their roles.It pales in comparison to the original, but there’s a lot to like here.

    I am big fan of the original, but this is word for word the exact same movie with a stupid app idea. I am furious watching this film and how Universal allowed this to be made. Thank god this was not in theaters and I could watch it off netlflix in the comfort of my home. Dan Schnider is sobbing after watching this, Why did you have to reboot something so iconic and perfect. This is a disgrace to everyone who enjoyed the original!

    I have not seen the 2002 film “Big Fat Liar” but from what I’ve read on some sites this latest “version” is quite inferior. It seemed to start out in a rather clever and humorous way but as as the movie progressed it all grew very tiresome for me.Ricky Garcia stars as Kevin, a high school student who has built a reputation of constantly lying and manipulating. When he’s caught plagiarizing a paper by one of his teachers, he’s given an assignment to write a new paper and cleverly comes up with the outline of a new video game called Bigger Fatter Liar.However, by circumstance his idea is stolen by a despicable video game executive (Barry Bostwick). Bostwick really plays the vile character to the hilt. Of course, due to Kevin’s previous reputation virtually no one will believe him.Thus, pretty much the remainder of the movie will involve Kevin and his best friend Becca (Jodelle Ferland) flying to San Francisco and wreaking havoc on the executive’s life through a series of pranks and revenge tactics. In my opinion, it just all became too repetitive like a “one trick pony” and contrived, and I was glad when it finally concluded.

    I apologize in advance- this review is a bit on the scathing side. But deservedly so, as studios need to realize that if sequels/remakes/reboots are going to be greenlit, they need to be at least remotely worthwhile.When I first saw this on Netflix, I was both shocked and excited; I had not heard about a remake of Big Fat Liar being in the works, but BFL was one of my absolute favorite movies as a kid, so I was hopeful about a fresh take on the story. This movie also had quite a bit of storytelling potential as far as explaining why the main character lied so much and why his friend put up with his nonsense for so long.And then I saw no trace of Dan Schneider in the writing/producing credits. That was a hard pill to swallow, as he was the reason the original was so much fun, but still, I went into it cautiously optimistic. After all, I enjoyed Ricky Garcia and Jodelle Ferland in other things…Twenty minutes in, I knew. I kept telling myself it could get better, so I stuck it out ’til the end, but it just didn’t.I’ll start with the writing. It’s awful. There were inconsistencies as glaring as the name of the video game in question; it switched between Bigger Fatter Liar and Big Fat Liar, so after watching the movie, I’m still not sure what the actual name is. Not to mention, I could swear Wolf’s first name is Larry in the movie, but on IMDb he’s listed as Alan. What? The biggest issue with the writing, however, is that it lacks everything that made Big Fat Liar special: quirkiness, charm, and most of all, LIFE. The remake was devoid of all of it. It didn’t help that Wolf went from turning into a brightly colored clown to a black- and-white mime. Ironically fitting, however, as the new Wolf actor utterly paled in comparison to the brilliance of Paul Giamatti.That brings me to the acting. Again, lifeless. The actors in the original oozed charisma and personality, whereas it is the complete opposite here.Ricky Garcia- He’s great as the lovable Naldo in Best Friends Whenever, but he clearly struggled with this role. I think Naldo is just easier to play, being the cartoonish Disney Channel sidekick that he is.Jodelle Ferland- She was the one person who turned in a decent performance most of the time, but she is no Amanda Bynes and was held back by a lack of good material to work with.Barry Bostwick- I’m not familiar with his past work, but from his credits I can tell that he’s a respectable actor, so it’s clear to me that he was more held back than anyone else. His performance was nothing special, but again, his material was nothing special.Basically, this movie was written and directed by a guy who does Hallmark movies, and it showed.Simply put, it just didn’t work.Don’t waste time on this remake and go watch Big Fat Liar(2002) if you haven’t already. You’ll thank me later.
