The Alibi is a 2006 comedy-drama film directed by Matt Checkowski and Kurt Mattila. The film stars Jerry O'Connell as a man named Ray, who runs a business that provides alibis to people who are cheating on their spouses. The film also stars Jon Polito as a detective who is trying to catch Ray in the act, and Deborah Kara Unger as Ray's love interest, who may or may not be involved in his scheme.

The film opens with Ray setting up an alibi for a man named Wendell Hatch (played by John Leguizamo), who is cheating on his wife. Ray provides Wendell with a fake business trip to explain his absence, and the plan works perfectly. From there, we see Ray's business in action, as he provides alibis for a variety of clients, including a cheating husband (played by James Brolin) and a woman who wants to hide her shopping addiction from her husband (played by Yvonne De Carlo).

Despite his success, Ray's business is threatened when he meets Lola (played by Deborah Kara Unger), a woman he falls in love with. Lola is a photographer who believes that true love is about honesty and openness, and she is immediately suspicious of Ray's secretive nature. As they start a relationship, Ray tries to keep his business and his love life separate, but it becomes increasingly difficult.

Complicating matters further is Detective Bryce (played by Jon Polito), a hard-nosed cop who is determined to catch Ray in the act. Bryce is convinced that Ray's alibi business is a front for something illegal, and he follows Ray around town, gathering evidence and harassing him at every turn.

As the film progresses, Ray struggles to keep his business and his relationship with Lola afloat, while also trying to avoid getting caught by Detective Bryce. The plot thickens as the various clients begin to overlap and interact, and Ray's carefully crafted world starts to unravel.

Overall, The Alibi is a funny and clever film that explores the themes of truth, dishonesty, and love. The cast is excellent, with Jerry O'Connell providing a charming and likable performance as Ray, Jon Polito being a perfect foil as the gruff detective, and Deborah Kara Unger bringing both beauty and complexity to her role as Lola. The film's script is well-written and full of twists and turns, keeping the audience engaged throughout. With its enjoyable cast and well-crafted plot, The Alibi is a must-see for fans of romantic comedies and crime films alike.

The Alibi is a 2007 romance movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.3.
