WILDEST DREAMS COME TRUE FOR ONE LOVABLE LOSER IN 'BIG LIAR ON CAMPUS' SEPTEMBER 16TH ON ABC FAMILY
Burbank, CA (July 31, 2007) � For one socially stigmatized high school student, his senior year is his chance to finally join the "in crowd," even if he has to lie. But what happens when all of his lies become true, will his life be exactly what he dreamed of? This September, Ryan Pinkston ("Bad Santa") fibs his way into the school elite in the movie BIG LIAR ON CAMPUS, Sunday, September 16 (8:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT). The film also stars Kate Mara ("Shooter"), Teri Polo ("Meet the Fockers"), Craig Kilborn ("Old School"), and Carmen Electra ("Scary Movie 4").
Sam Leonard (Pinkston) wants to make the most of his senior year at his new school, but after his first day he realizes he won't be able to shake off his "short weird kid" persona that easy. After some frank advice from the school guidance counselor (Kilborn), Sam decides that if he can't be the cool person he wants to be at least he can lie to make people like him. But when all of his tall tales suddenly come true, Sam finds out that his dream life is not all that it is cracked up to be. And to top it off, he might have lost Annie (Mara), the one person who truly liked him for who he was.
