The Alibi is a 2006 film directed by Matt Checkowski and Kurt Mattila. The film was released to DVD on December 5, 2006 under the title Lies and Alibis.
A man (Steve Coogan) who runs a service for adulterous husbands and wives that provides airtight alibis runs into trouble with his latest client. In order to remedy the problem, he has to rely on a very enticing woman (Rebecca Romijn), his assistant/partner. The plot thickens when he switches identities with one of his clients (James Marsden) for a weekend, and the client's girlfriend dies in an accident.
