Sweet Alibis is a 2014 Taiwanese comedy film starring Alec Su as a cowardly veteran cop and Ariel Lin as an overzealous rookie. The film follows the pair who team up to solve crimes together in Kaohsiung.

Plot[edit]

Starting from a seemingly pointless case of a puppy's accidental death, from eating chocolate, the essentially incompatible pair unexpectedly digs up the clues to a series of mysterious deaths.

Cast[edit]

Theme song[edit]

  • "Lao Tian You Yan" (老天有眼) performed by Alec Su (originally sung by Hei-pao in the 1980s)

Reception[edit]

It was the number-one film in Taiwan box office for a week in January 2014,[1] but overall grossing was disappointing with only NT$ 20.6 million (roughly $0.6 million) despite generally positive reviews.[2] It was successful in the Chinese box office in March 2014, ranking only behind 2 Taiwanese films — You Are the Apple of My Eye (2011) and Black & White Episode I: The Dawn of Assault (2012) — in first-week grossing.[3] It grossed ¥36.6 million (roughly $6 million) in mainland China.[4]

Awards[edit]

Trivia[edit]

There are in-jokes in the film referencing characters from the TV series In Time with You (2011) starring Ariel Lin and Romance in the Rain (2001) starring Alec Su and Ruby Lin.
