THURSDAY BIG FAT LIAR
FOXTEL FAMILY, 9.15PM ★★ ★
Irrepressibly upbeat update of the old Boy Who Cried Wolf fable, starring Malcolm in the Middle’s Frankie Muniz as a teenage serial liar looking to get even with the hotshot Hollywood producer ( Sideways’ Paul Giamatti) who stole his latest school assignment. Some sly satirical swipes at the movie biz really hit their target, adding further to the colourful fun already on off er. Muniz did all his own stunts, including a spectacular pratfall when his skateboard collides with a speeding limousine.
