During filming, the "apartment set" had a scene where a grenade was to be tossed through the set window by Special Effects Technician Stephen Van Allen and then thrown back out by actor Jefferson Brown before triggering a debris cannon to simulate the grenade explosion. While in any other conditions, having the grenade land in the debris cannon's funnel would be an impossible shot, Jefferson Brown's tosses landed the grenade in the funnel each and every time. It took 11 takes before getting it right and triggering the debris cannon. This cannon along with more than 250 bullet hits and squibs destroyed the film set in its final scene. See more »

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.
