Trivia

A permitting error at the City of Toronto Film and Television Office resulted in the production being issued a road closure permit that coincided with the Toronto gay pride parade. Production vehicles were parked the night before and paid duty officers manned the set overnight, but when crew showed up on Sunday July 3, 2011, they were greeted by crowd control barricades and thousands of parade goers there for a completely different event. The Supertechno crane parked at the intersection of Yonge and College the night before is visible in many official Toronto Pride photographs. Production manager Joe Alonzi was quoted as saying "This is a force we can't reckon with, cancel the shoot". See more »

Woody Allen on Prozac
10 January 2015 | by ross_tmSee 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.
