Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[A]n utterly charming and hilarious film that reminded me of the best of the Disney comedies from the 60s."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Unless you're part of the Nickelodeon Nation, the cold, hard truth is you're better off dropping your 'tween at the multiplex and spending that hour and a half doing something more worthwhile."
‑ Melanie McFarland, Seattle Times
"Really likeable family comedy set in cutthroat Hollywood."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Billed as a family film, only very young children will be able to dive into the story without banging their heads."
‑ Tyler Hanley, Palo Alto Weekly
"A hilarious film for anyone who remembers lying as a kid -- and anyone who wants to see a movie that's just plain fun."
‑ Heather Wadowski, Film Threat
"Home Alone goes Hollywood, a funny premise until the kids start pulling off stunts not even Steven Spielberg would know how to do. Besides, real movie producers aren't this nice."
‑ Joel Siegel, ABCNEWS.COM
"A children's movie that's almost worth seeing even when not accompanied by a child."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"So farfetched..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"...a well-meaning but brain-dead film..."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"The makers of Big Fat Liar understand kids. That alone earns it a place in the list of genuinely funny comedies for kids."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"Manages to be sweet and wickedly satisfying at the same time."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"It's a feature best viewed on mute. Or not at all."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"...for a so-called comedy, there are few laughs to be had."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Looks like a so-so TV movie that kept getting zeros put on its budget without the gags being added in equal measure."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"Even adults will appreciate the comedy, and making a film that gets the whole family chuckling is tougher than it sounds."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
