Lies & Alibis ... Fun and Quirky

So I watched this fun movie a while back called Lies and Alibis, also known as The Alibi (though netflix doesn't have it by that name). It was quite a lot of fun.

So anyways I found it last night when I got home from VMworld and was looking for a film to watch on netflix online. I watched the first 15 minutes and remembered how funny and quirky it really is. The premise is the following: A guy develops a service that helps men and women with their infidelity. It allows them to cheat on their spouse and will help maintain the illusions their clients create.

The owner of the company, Ray (Steve Coogan) has a simple rule: he does not cover crime, or revenge. In the opening scenes he hires a new employee, Lola (Rebecca Romijn) Who is extremely creative, quick on her feet and insightful. It seems the two will be extremely succesful, and Coogan is hopeful he will be able to hand off his first, and only remaining personal client to Romijn. His client has just one little request: to take care of his son's alibi personally before the son's wedding. Reluctantly, Ray agrees.

The only problem is, the son kills his mistress, and suddenly Coogan is framed for murder.

This is a great and fun film, and I hope you enjoy it.
