Jeff Anderson also offers a brilliant performance in the latest installment of the Jersey "trilogy" (Clerks II), how many is it now: Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy (the original trilogy), Dogma (it heads to Jersey), Jay & Silent Bob (it starts in Jersey, Jersey Girl, Clerks II ... I count 7 !Read more ›
Jeff Anderson, however, turns in a surprise with not only another acting gig, but a writing AND directoral one as well. And it's really good for a first-time outing from a guy who you feel got "railroaded" into the acting world with "Clerks." I almost hate to compare this to a Kevin Smith flick, but Anderson manages to turn out a romantic comedy on par with "Chasing Amy" but without the world of monologues that Kevin Smith characters seem to inhabit. Don't get me wrong, Kevin does brilliant dialogue, but I can imagine for some viewers, they get lost with all the talking, the witticisms, and the inside jokes. So flame me that I dare blaspheme and say that Anderson churned out something on par with (or maybe slightly better than) "Chasing Amy."

I will be honest and say that I did not have high hopes for this movie. I did not expect it to be bad, but I was certainly pleasantly surprised at how good it was and as one person stated during the Q&A, I now think of Jeff Anderson as Jeff Anderson, not as Randal. He has definitely come into his own and should be recognized for having talents all his own and beyond his quick-talking role in Kevin Smith's movies.
Now You Know is about a couple who are engaged and on the eve of their wedding the bride-to-be (Rashida Jones) calls off the wedding with (seemingly) no explanation, leaving the groom (Jeremy Sisto) confused and at a loss as to what he should do next.
One of the high points of the film is definitely the casting. For the most part the cast is impeccable and the acting is great. Jeremy Sisto is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors consistently surprising me in the unique and independant films he chooses to be in. His performance here is no exception, he is excellent as the sweet and baffled Jeremy. One hilarious fun fact is that according to Jeff Anderson his first choice for the role of Jeremy was Joey Lawrence! He said that Lawrence auditioned and was absolutely perfect but he couldn't bring himself to cast him simply because "come on, it's Joey Lawrence." Anyhow, Sisto fills the part just fine, although it would have been interesting to see Lawrence in the part as well.Read more ›
