Trivia

To celebrate 6 weeks of hard work, the executives purchased a large cake for the crew on the last day of photography. The cake was being stored in the production office, which, unbeknownst to special effects supervisor Jamie Sled, was equipped with a video surveillance security system. When co-director Colin Carter went to retrieve the cake at the end of the day, all that he found in its place was a sheet of paper colored in with crayons to crudely resemble the original cake. Upon reviewing the security footage from earlier that day, Sled was clearly visible on camera committing the swap. Despite extensive effort by the production to locate and prosecute Jamie Sled, he has never been seen since and it is assumed that he fled the country. Due to the underlying circumstances it is now assumed that Sled was also a ringleader in the notorious 'cookie bandit' case. See more »

Woody Allen on Prozac
10 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Please Kill Mr. Know It All feels a little like a Woody Allen movie from mid-late 90s (think Bullets over Broadway or Mighty Aphrodite), but with all of Allen's parts and dialogue edited out then the filmed slowed down a bit. The result is a situational comedy which is quieter than one would expect from the plot setup, with fewer easy gags, but still entertaining.

Mr. Know It All is the nom de plume for Sally, a columnist who gives advice on everything from love to investments. As the column's popularity takes off, Sally and her editor decide to preserve the fiction that the column is written by a man, and illustrate the column with a portrait of a man - Albert - that Sally sees in a movie theater. Albert also happens to be a hit man, who is not pleased by his sudden conspicuousness. Complications ensue.

Although the movie some pacing issues and a fairly predictable plot, the script is well thought out and the actors are appealing and do a credible enough job to make the movie work.
