We’ve all heard the story or rumor of someone sleeping their way to the top of their profession. In Miss Nobody, Sara Jane McKinney’s (Leslie Bibb) ascent to the top is also littered with bodies, dead bodies. McKinney starts out as a mild-mannered secretary at a large pharmaceutical company. When a position opens for a junior executive, with encouragement from her best friend and a heavily padded resume, she applies and receives the promotion. Or so she thinks until Milo Beeber (Brandon Routh) is transferred in from another one of the company’s offices, given her position and she is assigned as his secretary. McKinney decides the best she can do now is try to marry an executive and sets her sights on her new boss. However, things go accidently, horribly, wrong and Beeber is dead. McKinney get’s his job but it’s not going to be easy to keep and she finds herself going to even greater lengths to retain her position. The results of her efforts are dark, funny, and move her further up the corporate ladder.
But how long can she keep this up, especially after her mother (Kathy Baker) rents out a room to the attractive but noisy police detective Bill Malloy (Adam Goldberg)?
This movie is decently funny. Bibb is good as our naive killer, especially with her justifications for her actions. Despite the fact that the film does get slow and repetitive at points; the physical comedy, corporate caricatures, and overall theme that plays out from beginning to end, complete with plot twists, make this a pretty enjoyable film.
