Audience Reviews for Lies & Alibis

    I'm not a big fan of caper movies. There's just something generic about them and once you've seen a caper movie, realistically, you've seen them all, even if they're good movies. It's really quite hard to stand out. So I'm surprised that I 'enjoyed' this movie more than I should have. The story isn't very clear and the last 20 minutes or so try to be needlessly complex, with every character appearing in the same place at the same time to solve their several subplots. It felt forced and unnatural. But it's not a bad movie, especially for a direct to dvd film. Steve Coogan is great, so that may have helped a bit. And that's it, another generic but slightly enjoyable caper movie you won't miss out on anything if you decide to skip this one. But there's also worse ways to spend 90 minutes.

    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.
