Trivia

Stottlemeyer says "Last year, we got that conviction on that guy by virtue of the air that he breathed into a beach ball." That was in Monk: Mr. Monk Goes to a Rock Concert (2006). See more »

Goofs

When Leila comes to visit Monk, she is offered a seat on a couch with two striped brown pillows. First sitting down, the stripes on the left pillow are vertical, and horizontal on the right pillow. The shot changes to Monk, and then back to Leila, and both of the striped pillows are vertical. The position of the pillows change several times in the scene. See more »

Terrible writing, casting and direction
27 April 2015 | by Serengeti83See all my reviews

The plot was threadbare, implausible, and downright lazy- no clues, red herrings, detection, deduction. Not even the usual "here's what happened". Because there was nothing to explain. The casting was atrocious- the woman who was supposed to remind Monk of his angelic wife looked old, unkempt, haggard and definitely not love-at- first-sight material. The thought of Monk being in love with her was impossible to digest. The mother looked more put-together and groomed than her daughter. Her perfectly combed hair wasn't disturbed even in the lukewarm reconciliation scene. And the director was too bored to figure that a woman who had landed two days ago in a city was not likely to have an apartment, much less window boxes filled with her favourite flowers.
