"Lies & Alibis" isn't as jaunty as its title and dilutes a serviceable premise for a mild diversion that just lapses into confusion. Directors Matt Checkowski and Kurt Mattila and writers Noah Hawley and Collin Friesen work up more complications than they and their ensemble cast, boasting a surprisingly large number of name players, can handle.
