A former street tough returns to his Philadelphia home after a stint in the military. Back on his home turf, he once again finds himself tangling with the mob boss who was instrumental in his going off to be a soldier.
Released after 12 years in an asylum, a young woman is reunited with her family and friends but soon begins to realize that the strange and gruesome events that led to her committal may not have been imaginary after all.
The crook Ray Elliot, whose former partner Jack is under a five-million-dollar contract, believes in statistics and runs a risk assessment and managing business; actually a front for a company that provides alibis to adulterous people that cheat their mates. He does not accept giving alibis for crimes and he has just hired the alluring Lola to be his assistant. When Wendell Hatch, the reckless son of his wealthy client Robert Hatch, accidentally kills his masochist date Heather in a kinky S&M game, Ray breaks his rules to protect his own name and hire some guys to clean the bedroom and vanish the body.

Saw this at the premiere at the AFI filmfest here in Hollywood. Crowd loved it, I had a great time. Great story, fine acting, fast paced. Keeps you going the whole way through. Very stylish. I enjoyed the feel of the film - editing, tone, camera work. Reminds me of an older style 60s thriller/comedy. Yeah, you have to pay attention to what's going on which is usually the sign of a good film. James marsden was hysterical, hope to see him doing more comedy. Would have liked to have seen more of Rebecca Romijn's character. Sam Elliot was awesome and Steve Coogan was a fantastic lead - very dry humor, I will look out for more of his films. Please see this film if you like to have a good time at the movies.
