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. Sooner Ray has many problems to resolve: the police are on his tail trying to find a clue about the disappearance of Heather; her jealous Mexican-American boyfriend wishes revenge against the murderer; Wendell is upset because Ray told his father about the crime; Robert is angry and hires the hit-man Mormon to kill Ray, but the killer spares him to chase Jack.

Great fun
12 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

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.
