Movie Info

When a reformed grifter currently running a prosperous alibi service for adulterous husbands inadvertently becomes an accessory to murder, he is forced to execute one last, well-timed con as a means of clearing his name in this lightning fast caper comedy starring Steve Coogan, Rebecca Romijin, Selma Blair, and Sam Elliot. Ray (Coogan) is a smooth operator with a special knack for helping his fellow man dodge the proverbial bullet. When a married man simply can't resist the urge to have a bit of

Lies & Alibis isn't as jaunty as its title and dilutes a serviceable premise for a mild diversion that just lapses into confusion.

...there comes a point at which Noah Hawley's screenplay just becomes too complex for its own good...

This straight-to-video comedy is better than most theatrical comedies I've seen lately.

Coogan é um ator sempre divertido e aqui trabalha com um roteiro que, apesar de implausível, é dotado de suficiente auto-ironia para divertir sem ser levado a sério.

Delves into a standard caper film full of cons and double-crosses. And as those types of films go, it's really not too bad.

A warmed-over caper movie that plays like it's based on a bad Xerox of an Elmore Leonard novel.

Audience Reviews for The Alibi (Lies & Alibis)

A film that had that "cool" factor, but something went wrong in the editing? I felt mildly lost throughout this movie. Despite a rather strong cast (minus Romijn), this is one of those movies with unclear intentions. Is it a romantic comedy? Is it a light comic adventure about cons, and crimes? You never really know, or feel, like the movie achieves its purpose. So many wasted talents.

[font=Century Gothic]In "Lies and Alibis," ex-con man Ray Elliot(Steve Coogan) is the head of a risk management company that specializes in providing alibis for cheating spouses, both male and female.(By the way, his ex-partner has a five million dollar bounty on his head.) His interview for a new associate, Lola(Rebecca Romijn), includes an impromptu audition to get a valued client, Robert Hatch(James Brolin), off the hook with his wife(Sharon Lawrence) which works out perfectly, if not exactly how Ray imagined it. Later, Bob employs Ray personally to oversee his son's(James Marsden) affair but it goes disastrously bad when he accidentally strangles his lover(Jaime King) during rough sex.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic][/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"Lies and Alibis" is an entertaining movie that is about the need to enjoy one's job. The movie starts with a great premise, but slows down and threatens to turn into just another predictable morality play. At which point, it backs away from the edge and in its last act becomes a beautiful piece of intricate clockwork ingenuity.[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]For the record, a freshman ethics course could spend a whole semester debating the morality of Ray's firm, so I will not comment or judge. But I will say that it does look like they provide a valuable service, which is good, especially if any number of conservatives are offended, crying about the sanctity of marriage.(Although to be perfectly frank, if you are going to have sex outside of your marriage, then it is best to have an open relationship.) The fact that the firm charges a fee for their services, mostly from wealthy philanderers, means that you will pay one way or another.[/font]

A great film. Love Steve Coogan. Filled with laughter and with a humor such as Coogan, it's worth seeing.
