Overview

Wackiness ensues in the kid's comedy Big Fat Liar. The film is presented in a cropped 1.33:1 full-frame ratio that looks excellent. Aside of the picture being a pan-and-scan version, the image displays vibrant colors and dark black levels. Without any defects or imperfections marring the image, this transfer should please fans (read: kids) of the film. The soundtrack is presented in both Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and DTS Surround, both in English. Each of these tracks are very full and bombastic with the music score (mostly pop songs) coming in loud and clear. All aspects of the mix are free and clear of any excessive hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc is a Dolby 5.1 track in French, as well as English and Spanish subtitles. The extra features on this edition of Big Fat Liar are plentiful enough to keep children busy for hours. Starting off the disc are two commentary tracks, one by director Shawn Levy and a second by star Frankie Muniz. Each of these tracks offer a good deal of production information and anecdotes about the film's shoot. A short behind-the-scenes featurette is nothing more than a fluffy extended trailer for the film. Finally, there are some Spyro video game tips, as well as a handful of deleted scenes which offer little insight into the story or characters.
