Quotes

[first lines]
Sarah Jane McKinney: [narrating] For a long time I'd walk into work convinced they all knew, they saw right through me. Me and my innocent act. Which never used to be an act, it's who I really was. I'd never do anything bad. Ever! I always imagined myself having a simple life. Find a nice guy, settle down, live happily ever after. Who would have thought looking for love would be so tricky? But like mom always said, Sarah Jane, ambition will put you in an early grave.

Be Careful with the Aspirin
12 January 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Sarah Jane McKinney (Leslie Bibb) is a secretary of the big Judge Pharmaceutical company and devote of St. George that she believes protects her since she was a child. Sarah Jane lives in the boarding house of her mother Claire McKinney (Kathy Baker) where the Mr. Ketchum (Geoffrey Lewis) that has Alzheimer is her only client. Sarah Jane also dreams on finding her knight in shinning armor.

One day, Sarah Jane's best friend, the also secretary Charmaine (Missi Pyle) shows her that the company needs a junior executive and she will apply her curriculum vitae to the position. Sarah Jane decides to do the same and she is selected to the position. However, the political lady killer Milo Beeber (Brandon Routh) is transferred to the position and she is her secretary. When he makes a pass at her, Sarah Jane goes to his flat and accidentally kills Beeber. On the next day, she is promoted to the position of junior executive again. Sarah Jane has to kill other executives to protect her and she climbs in the company. When the new guest Det. Sgt. Bill Malloy (Adam Goldberg) comes to the boarding house, they fall in love with each other. But the problem is that Malloy is the homicide detective in charge of the investigation of the murder cases.

"Miss Nobody" is a comedy of black humor with a dark criticism to the environment and how to climb positions in a corporation. The idea of killing bosses is not original, but he screenplay is funny and Leslie Bibb using the same style of Audrey Tautou in "Amélie Poulain". In the end, the movie entertains but the conclusion is moralist. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil) : "Uma Secretária de Morte" ("A Death Secretary")
