Trivia

When Sally is wandering the streets looking for a face to sketch for her column, director Colin Carter plays a small cameo distributing flyer's on a street corner. After shooting the scene, Colin is quoted as saying "That was one of the most awkward 5 minutes of my life". They were shooting at a real street corner, and he was attempting to give out flyer's to real pedestrians. 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.
