Storyline

Shawn Holloway has a miserable life since she was eleven, when her father left her mother and she stayed alone with her problematic mother. Presently she is graduated, works in a bank and is the mistress of her married colleague Matthew Richmond. When she finds that Matthew's wife is pregnant, she decides to commit suicide. She goes to the roof of the building, drinks some vodka, trying to get enough courage to jump to the floor. The neighbors see the scene and call the police to save Shawn. Meanwhile, the bank where she works is being robbed by Charlie Anders and two friends of him. When the cops arrive to save Shawn, the heist is in progress and the police shoot one robber, the driver escapes and Charlie runs to the top of the building. There, he does not allow Shawn to jump off and saves her. They make an agreement: she would help him to escape, and he would give US$ 50,000.00 to her and kill her later with a shot in the head.

Trivia

A large number of filter effects, shutter effects, and jump cuts are used to make long dialogue scenes (particularly between the two cop and between the two lovers) more visually interesting. The audio itself on both is done as a single long take. See more »

Goofs

As Shawn and Charlie are escaping, Shawn turns the wheel to the left, as the car is turning right. See more »

Bank Customer: We don't qualify, do we? I knew it!
Bank Customer: Honey, be quiet. She hasn't said anything yet.
Shawn Holloway: No, you qualify.
Bank Customer: I knew it!
Shawn Holloway: Technically.
Bank Customer: Technically? What does that mean?
Shawn Holloway: It means, on paper, that you qualify for this home loan.
Bank Customer: But, you're not giving it to us. I knew it!
Shawn Holloway: No, all I'm saying is that I want you to fully consider what you're getting yourselves into. For instance, this is your first child, right?

Fun fluff
29 November 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Kill Me Later" is a romantic comedy about a suicidal woman (Blair) who reluctantly takes up with a bank robber on the lam (Beesley) if he promises to shoot her once he's made his escape. What follows is busy enough with side plots, action, and snappy patter to keep the waning eye lid open in spite of the movie's many flaws including unnecessary visual effects, loose ends, Kodak moments which don't work, and a speed bump at the midway mark. Okay for sofa spuds. (C+)
