Jim Carrey learns about the truth the hard way in the Universal comedy Liar Liar. Universal has done an excellent job on this title, starting with a very nice 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. The colors and flesh tones boast strong patterns with no fading or bleeding present. Edge enhancement is kept to a minimum with the black levels looking very solid and dark. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and is not quite as impressive as the video portions of the disc. While there are instances of directional effects, they're kept to a bare minimum and used sparingly. Some distortion is heard in the dialogue at higher volumes, though most of the effects and music are clear and concise. Also included on this disc is a French Dolby 2.0 track, as well as English captions. This version of Liar Liar is a collector's edition and includes a few decent extra features, including a mildly funny commentary track by director Tom Shadyac, as well as a short featurette titled "Bridging The Comedy Chasm," featuring interviews with the cast and crew of the film. Finally, there is a short reel of outtakes and deleted scenes, some production notes, a few cast and crew biographies, web links, a still gallery, and theatrical trailers for Liar Liar, Patch Adams, and The Nutty Professor.
