Nothing new, but they put these clichés of raunchy comedies to good use
A French comedy which feels like a mainstream American comedy – with all the animal- and sex-jokes, partying, misadventures and wacky characters you can digest in 90 minutes. And it's sweet! The story is about hot new startup that creates alibis for people who want to lie to other people (seems that paying customers are mostly cheating husbands or boyfriends). Then, the founder of the company is lucky to meet the love of his life, and suddenly uniting work and private affairs gets really difficult. This is fast-moving mainstream comedy so the actors are more adequate than great. Surprisingly, the best and most nuanceful performance comes from Élodie Fontan who's supposed to be just a pretty girl in a supporting role (the love interest mentioned above). What's most interesting about the male leads – the people behind the alibi-creating company – is that two of them also wrote the screenplay, and the leading man Philippe Lacheau is both co- screenwriter and director. That's a lot of work for one pretty boy! And what a nice ride it is! Jokes come thick and fast, the actors are likable enough to command our attention, and the story is surprisingly layered. Beside the main events, one can spot not-too-obvious movie jokes (Bloodsport", Star Wars", Snatch.", Assassin's Creed" among others), light satirical jabs at current world events, buddy and screwball comedy elements, and separate story lines suddenly interwining shortly for some added comic effect. They have used quite a lot of clichés known to current mainstream (American) comedies but the result feels fresh and inventive. There's enough good energy and bravura to justify the viewing even if you don't usually much care about the sex jokes. I've only seen about 25 movies released in 2017 so far, but Alibi.com" is my second favorite after Get Out". Nothing new here, really, but they sure knew how to put these clichés of raunchy comedies to good use. Yeah!
