All's fair in love and death in this smart and sexy comedy about a guy, Ray (Steve Coogan), who runs an alibi service for adulterous husbands and gets into a jam with one of his clients. In trying to remedy the situation, he must rely on his alluring fast-talking right-hand woman (Rebecca Romijn) to mastermind one final con that will put the ghosts of his past to rest, once and for all.

I picked this up because I wanted something new and I like Steve Coogan. It may not be the best movie I've ever seen, but it's deffinately better than some of the stuff out there. It's clever, funny, and if not entirely original at least it's entertaining and fast paced. I'll admit I'm still not quite sure what Rebecca Romijn's character is there for other than to dress in white and be sexy. If you're looking for a decent Friday night movie this is a pretty good bet.

This is a pretty small movie, but I find it to be a fun little story. The premise (alibis for cheating spouses) might offend some, but it moves right along, has a clever ending, and there are some funny, yet subtle, lines throughout ("Vanity will be the death of you, Ray!"...."Let's hope.") It's not Oscar caliber, but it's a fun Friday evening movie.

So states the risk management owner of a service that creates 'cover lies' for adulterous affairs. And up to a point that statement makes Ray Elliott (Steve Coogan) seem like an honest if distorted service provider, covering the tracks with high technology so that cheating husbands can have affairs without the danger of their wives' discovery.

Smartly written by Noah Hawley and directed with style by Matt Checkowski and Kurt Mattila, LIES & ALIBIS delivers a new twist to suspense films laced with comedy yet filled with tension, murder, and all manner of underground derring-do. Ray Elliott is a smooth talker who manages to discreetly provide protection for business men who cheat on their wives using photographers to set up situations, falsifying credit cards and names and hotel room reservations, staging gifts for suspicious wives to stave off their concerns, etc. All proceeds well until Ray's primary client Robert Hatch (James Brolin) hires Ray to cover his son Wendell's (James Marsden) Santa Barbara bed and breakfast, pre-wedding escapade with a S&M girlfriend of one Hannibal (John Leguizamo) - a spree that carries out a bit too far in that the girl is dead by Wendell's inadvertent orders during the 'game'. Sam takes on the voluptuous Lola (Rebecca Romijn) as his new assistant and discovers she is as brainy as she is beautiful. He employs her to help his cover of the murder (Ray had switched IDs with Wendell in a planned alibi cover for the fling), breaking his own rules, and Lola ends up saving the day through a manner of crosses and double crosses that fling off the screen so fast that it takes powerful concentration to keep the story progress straight - just the way coordinated crime behaves!

We have Steve Coogan who will aid and assist you in cheating on your spouse, male or female doesn't matter. well, one of his clients gets a little carried away and bad things happen and exactly who is this man is he Ray Elliot or is he the man everyone is looking for and wants to kill? Ray is the penultimate con man so anything can happen. We have quite a cast and they are all remarkable in the parts given them. You will need to pay attention, though, this isn't a movie that you can put on and do the laundry, you will have to sit and watch. Steve Coogan and Rebecca romijn are stellar.

Bought this DVD because the writer is Noah Hawley, who did the "Fargo" TV series. It has more than a whiff of "Fargo" in it -- crossed with "Deathtrap" and "Sleuth" -- a twisty mystery plot that keeps reversing itself, and characters who keep showing up in odd & unexpected relationships. I'm going to have to watch it a couple more times to follow the plot completely.

Rebecca Romijn is stunningly good-looking although her part is pretty much a walk-on/walk-off. Steve Coogan stars but he's wrestling above his weight in this one. Sam Elliott steals the show as a Mormon hitman. Lots of great secondary characters (a cast of two dozen).

I had to turn on subtitles halfway through because of mumbling, foreign accents and location sound recording. Either I'm losing my hearing or the film is pretty hard to decipher.

Well, this time the Ross Stores ultra-bargain DVD bin was really depleted. I could only find two movies that looked anywhere near interesting. One was "Lies and Alibis" staring Steve Coogen and Rebecca Romijn. I'd never heard of the movie nor either of the actors, but I'm not really up on Hollywood goings on. I got the idea the movie was a comedy and might provide a restful break in between two ultra-action flicks. Well, it offered mild amusement, very mild.

It seems that Coogan and hire-ee Romijn had a business providing the Southern California population subset with too much money and not enough mates a way or two of getting around such pesky problems while maintaining the appearance of the up and up. Lies and alibis were their specialties and the truth was whatever they could make it up to be. Their business involved the adjustment of perception. Under unusual, and expensive, circumstances a whole new "Truth" scenario might be established to placate offended significant others. It was a lucrative business, but sometimes things could go very, very wrong. In one particular case, one of their clients ended up with the corpse of his lady friend and it resulted in the intrusion of some really, really bad guys who were out the right the wrong. Of course, the police became heavily mixed into the whole brouhaha. Was it worth watching? Not really. The filming and sound were okay. The acting was so so. The language seems to dwell on the vulgar euphemism for the lower opening of the digestive system. Would I watch it again? Well, no. I could see giving it 2 1/2 stars, but my rating system won't allow it, so I'll round the rating up to three just because Rebecca Romijn is so pleasant and nice looking.
