Straight-laced Rose breaks off relations with her party girl sister, Maggie, over an indiscretion involving Rose's boyfriend. The chilly atmosphere is broken with the arrival of Ella, the grandmother neither sister knew existed.
The crook Ray Elliot, whose former partner Jack is under a five million dollars 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 to give 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.

Poor film, poor story. Listening to Steve Coogan do an American accent was cringe-worthy. About 1 minute into the film I knew it was going to be a stinker, but I persisted to the end...and was not rewarded for my persistence. The twists were obvious, the humour was poor and very much un-coogan.
I agree that most reviews of this film seem to be written to boost its popularity.
I picked this film up for £2, and it proved you get what you pay for. I'd never heard of it before buying it, and I wish I'd not bothered!
If you like Steve Coogan, you'll dislike The Alibi! Don't bother. Pick up some old Alan Partridge instead, much funnier.
