Alibi, The


aka: Lies & Alibis
USA 2006, 90 minutes
Dir. Matt Checkowski, Kurt Mattila
Genres: Suspense/Crime


Aroview: Nicely-off kilter farce stars Steve Coogan as a 'reformed' con-artist running an 'alibi providing service' for adulterous spouses to help conduct their affairs with relative impunity.

Unfortunately one of his longtime clients accidently kills his lover and soon Coogan, along with a statuesque new assistant (Romijn-Stamos), is having to salt his fake paper-trail with all manner of red-herrings to put off the coppers, a boyfriend and bizarrely, a Mormon assassin. With a fabulous cast and Coogan's skill at dry humour helping keep all the quirky balls in the air, this succeeds as an old-fashioned caper comedy spiced with just the right amount of silly fun.
