Killer Diller
17 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went and saw the Movie Killer Diller in Columbia, Missouri and thought that it was an excellent movie. I was really excited to see it because I attend the school that the movie was filmed on. Watching the movie was really awesome because I saw several people that I knew or had classes with. Anywho this is a really awesome movie. I love the music!!! Several scenes take place behind Linn Memorial church which is located on our campus. The concert at the very end was filmed inside our field house. In one part of the film it looks like there is a building being worked on in the background. that is where one of the towns pizza shops was but the summer before it burned down and they are rebuilding. I also recognized some of the actors which made viewing the movie cool. One of the actors I don't know his name. I'm pretty sure that he was on the t.v. show Sister, Sister on the Disney Channel.
