How well do you remember the halcyon heydays of Frankie Muniz and Amanda Bynes, two stars who were blowing up in the early '00s? Perhaps watching their timeless classic, Big Fat Liar (which turns 15 years old this year), would help job your memory? Big Fat Liar is, like the title may imply, a totally wacky comedy that came out when many of us Millenials were just mischief-loving prankster ourselves. The film was a vehicle for Muniz and Bynes, both of whom were enjoying rising stars compounded by their work on Malcolm in the Middle and All That, respectively.
In short, Big Fat Liar is outrageous. The plot revolves around 14-year-old Jason Shepherd, who is prone to weaving fantastic lie to get out of trouble. In an attempt to avoid going to summer school, he writes a short story titled "Big Fat Liar," which ends up in the hands of sleazy movie producer Marty Wolf. When Jason finds out his idea was stolen, turned into a movie, and he was conveniently not given credit, he heads to Hollywood to convince Marty to give him credit and clear his name to his parents.
Full to the brim with out-of-this-world antics, the film remains infamous for turning its main antagonist, Marty Wolf, a deep shade of Smurf blue. But there were tons more outrageous, weird, and ridiculously "WTF?" moments in Big Fat Liar. Let's take a look back at some of the most notable ones.
