The crook Ray Elliot (Steve Coogan), 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 (Rebecca Romijn) to be his assistant. When Wendell Hatch (James Marsden), the reckless son of his wealthy client Robert Hatch (James Brolin), accidentally kills his masochist date Heather (Jaime King) 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 is in 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 (Sam Elliott) to kill Ray, but the killer is chasing Jack. When the jealous Mormon sees his wife Adelle (Selma Blair) flirting with Ray, he decides to kill him. Without any option, Ray joins his crook-friends to help him to resolve the situation.

The beginning of "The Alibi" is too fast and confused and does not develop well the relationship between Ray Elliot and Lola. However, after the death of the masochist slut, the story becomes funny and dynamic, and the final plan of Ray is messy but hilarious. The cast of this film has good actors and actresses and in the end it is a worthwhile entertainment. The most incredible, Rebecca Romijn seems to be more beautiful than ever. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Álibi" ("Alibi")
