Storyline

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. When the jealous Mormon ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

"Lies & Alibis" is a 2006 film starring Steve Coogan, Rebecca Romijn, James Brolin, Sam Elliott, James Marsden, and John Leguizamo.

Steve Coogan plays Ray Elliot, whose former partner Jack has a $5 million contract on his life, so everybody wants to find him. Elliot runs a risk management firm on the face of it. In reality it is probably based on the real-life Alibi Network - like the real thing, Elliot's company helps wayward husbands cheat by giving them alibis, intercepting calls to the hotel where they're supposed to be staying, etc.

There are several subplots going on but the main one is that Ray helps out a client's (Brolin) son Wendell (Marsden) by allowing him to cheat on his fiancé. Wendell is supposed to be at a conference in San Francisco; instead, with faked identity showing he is Ray Elliot, he's living in up in Santa Barbara with a hot woman. Ray, as Wendall, is in San Francisco. Unfortunately, Wendell's girl is into kinky sex and, during one session, winds up dead. The cops want to speak to Ray.

I found this a funny, clever film, with the beautiful Romijn playing a new and valuable assistant of Ray's, Sam Elliot as a hit man with several wives who is after Ray's old partner, and James Brolin as a cheating husband. Leguizamo is a riot as the dead woman's boyfriend.

Lots of twists. This makes a good rental.
