A dodgy script and weak direction means the decent performances fall flat.

Her Alibi veers with little purpose from bland drama to heavy-handed slapstick, with rhythm, characterization, and plotting better suited to television than the movies

He's a mystery writer, she's a mystery; and it's also a mystery how TV fodder like this manages to get the high-gloss, top-talent treatment at studios.

The plot is ludicrous, which in itself would be perfectly acceptable given sharper handling, but both script and direction devote so much time to romantic undercurrents that the central intrigue is further divested of credibility.

A romantic melodrama of a boringness to make your average tooth extraction seem preferable.

Her Alibi is a trifling confection, a near-invisible farce, cinematic pocket lint. That's not to say that it's a terrible movie; cake icing certainly isn't a terrible food.

Utterly innocuous and completely unmemorable.

Watch it with the sound off to see two pretty people and miss the dumb plot.

You know a movie is in trouble when you start looking at your watch. You know it's in bad trouble when you start shaking your watch because you think it might have stopped.

Screenwriter Charlie Peters is the predictable piggy whose arrested pubescence informs Her Alibi. When it comes to imagination, he has much in common with his hero.
