This one is about an attorney who simply cannot stop lying. It is essential for him to win all of those big juicy settlements and trials. While it's essential for his big litigation firm, all of this lying hurts his relationship with his 6 year old son, who is ultimately disappointed when this workaholic lawyer of a dad misses his birthday party. To make things even and fair, little genius wishes for his dad not being able to lie for a whole day.
Magic happens and, as wished, his dad can't lie any more.
The coupling of this hilarious premise with Mr Goof himself, Jim Carrey, could not end in anything but hilarity.

This is a rather old movie we're talking about here, around 1997, but I saw it the other day on TV and it was still funny as hell. It also got me thinking... what if this happened to me? Whether we like it or not, we lie all day every day, or say half truths, concealed truths, white lies, etc..
Bla bla bla yap yap yappa yap bla bla, you know what I mean?
- Sure man, for real...
What would happen if the whole world couldn't lie for a week?
How many people would lose their jobs, spouses, investments... it's funny to think about it, it'd be terrible if it happened.
What kind of things would you start spurting out if you were unable to lie?
