The crook Ray Elliott, 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 hitman "The Mormon" to kill Ray, but the killer spares him to chase Jack.

A Fun Movie with Several Strange Twists
A fun movie with several strange twists. Essentially, "Ray Elliott" (Steve Coogan) owns a small company which helps people set up alibis in order to continue extramarital affairs. For example, if a person who is having an affair is supposed to be in a business meeting, then all calls will be rerouted to one of Ray Elliotts assistants who will field the call and cover for the client. Naturally, this is all done for a hefty price. Unfortunately, things go wrong when a new client accidentally kills his mistress. Not only is Ray Elliott left to try to clean up the mess but he soon finds that he has a contract out on his head as well. Likewise, his former partner also has a contract out on his head and people are swarming all over the place looking for him too. At any rate, Steve Coogan performed in an outstanding manner. Likewise, Rebecca Romijn looked awesome as Ray Elliott's new employee "Lola". And while this film has some mature themes it really doesn't go overboard or push the envelope. In short, this is a good comedy which most people will probably get a kick out of.
