THURS­DAY BIG FAT LIAR

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

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.
